A Tribute to Mrs. A.L. Stone A long time resident and friend has passed away. Mrs. A.L. Stone departed this life Wednesday morning June twentieth at four a.m. In early life she had many friends who are faithful to the last, those few who have not preceded her. Few there are now who remember Kitty Angell. She was born in Albion, Oswego county, New York May 7, 1842 and was married to Augustus L. Stone May 4, 1864. They came to Clinton from Camden, New York in January, 1870. Mr. Stone preceded her in death May 20, 1913. Of their union were born four daughters, three of whom, Martha, Katie and Kittie have passed on. Martha Anna, who became the wife of Fred B. Burbank, died in Sioux City in 1900, Kittie Parsons, died in infancy in 1872 and Katie Angell died in 1880, at the age of six years. Mrs. Stone is survived by her youngest daughter, Ruby Elizabeth, who is Mrs. Roscoe W. Armstrong of this city, and by her has three grandchildren, Roscoe, Jr., Kenneth and Catherine Armstrong. During Mrs. Stone's long time residence in this city she took an active part in church, charitable and social interests. She was a member of St. John's Episcopal church, the Colonial Dames, and the Tuesday club, and was formerly a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and an active worker as a charter member of the Lady's Board of Managers of the Agatha hospital. Thus passes a mother, whom we all respected highly. Her hands of charity were always open and she brought sunshine into the homes of those to whom it had been a stranger and now as she folds her hands in her last long sleep, we say hail and are well to her whose life was spent in the service of the Master. And as we lay her beside her companion, we shall not weep tears of bitterness, but will say to the All Father :Thy will be done." She had lived in the service of the Master to a ripe age. Her mission is accomplished and she has gone to her well merited reward. Above her grave the verdure will be greener, the flowers more beautiful and brighter, and we then will say as we turn away "Rest in peace."
