Was a Former Resident of Grundy County
Mrs. Lucy C. Gray died at her home in Waterloo at four o'clock Sunday morning following a week's sickness. Prior to her final sickness, Mrs. Gray had been a partial invalid from rheumatism for several years.
Mrs. Gray was 78 years old. The better part of her life was spent in Grundy county. The family lived for many years on a Grundy county farm after which they moved to Grundy Center. A few years after the death of her husband Mrs. Gray and her son and daughter removed to Waterloo where they since made their home.
Funeral services were held at the home in Waterloo Tuesday at nine o'clock. The services were in charge of Rev. W. P. McCormick, pastor of the Westminster Presbyterian church, Waterloo. The remains were brought to Grundy Center and laid by the side of the husband in the local cemetery.
Mrs. Gray's maiden name was Lucy Dickey. She was born in the state of Vermont, Oct. 1st, 1851. Later she came to Wisconsin with her parents. In 1881 she was married to Robert Gray at Orfordville, Wis. The family came to Grundy county in 1891. Mr. Gray died in 1919.
Mrs. Gray and son Elwin and daughter Fern moved to Waterloo in 1921. Fern, who has been secretary to the superintendent of the West high school in Waterloo for several years, has been making her home with her mother. Elwin is a traveling representative for a house making religious publications.
Mrs. Gray was quite active in the work of the Presbyterian church at Grundy Center, teaching a Sunday school class for a number of years. Her invalidism prevented her from attending church in Waterloo, altho she transferred her membership to Westminster church almost immediately after locating here. She held membership in the Home department, conducted in connection with the Sunday school of Westminster organization.
