Obituary: Death Of Mrs. Wesley Howard
Death claimed one of the city's well known and highly esteemed residents in the passing of Mrs. Jennie Fencil Howard, wife of Wesley H. Howard, who died at the family home, 714 North Center street at 11:40 o'clock Thursday evening. Taken ill seven years ago last October, Mrs. Howard had been confined to her home since that time. Rallying from occasional critical spells during her long illness, she showed periodic improvement but never recovered and was a patient sufferer during her extended affliction. Her condition had been critical for some time and death was not unexpected. Mrs. Howard was born in Oil City, April 7, 1892 spending her early life in Erie. She was married to Wesley H. Howard of Corry on June 20, 1894 taking up her residence in Corry where she had since lived. The deceased was long active in Methodist church and club circles of the city. Until her health forced a cessation of activities, Mrs. Howard was an active member of the Methodist Church and was closely interested in it's various societies, including the Alathians, the Woman's Missionary Society, etc., while she was a former teacher of the Dorcas class. The deceased was a charter member of the Historical Circle, with which was actively identified for a number of years, and also of the Woman's Club, which she served as president. She also was a past matron of the Corry chapter of the Eastern Star. She is survived by her husband, one daughter, Mrs. A.L. Young of Corry, two sons, Harold F. Howard, of Flint, Mich, and Clifton M. Howard, of Corry, and eight grandchildren. The body will be taken from the Bracken-Keating funeral home the the family home on North Center street Saturday morning where friends may call.
