(Obituary by Rev. J. B. Bird)
Carrie L. Harris, the daughter of David and Luthera Harris, was a native of Wisconsin, born at Orfordville Oct. 1, 1861. In their family were two half-sisters, Flora and Triphene, and a half-brother, Samuel, and one sister, Kate. Of these, the only one now living is Flora, whose home is at Portland, Oregon.
Carrie Harris became the wife of Frederick Eugene Dickey April 13, 1897, at her home in Wisconsin. In the autumn of that same year they came to live at Grundy Center in the house which is the present home of the family. Surviving are her aged husband and their son Harris of Emmetsburg.
Mrs. Dickey has been interested in and associated with various organizations in the community, notably the Methodist church, of which she has been a member since girlhood days, and the Women's Christian Temperance Union, in whose work and activities she ardently believed. The Alpha Harmony class, the W.F.M.S., the W.C.T.U. and the W.R.C. will all greatly miss her in their gatherings, for she gladly, eagerly endeavored to participate in all their work.
Those who attended the funeral from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. Jessie Sawyer, Bradley Sawyer and Mrs. Will Johnston of Elgin, Minn., Miss Fern Gray of Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Durfee and Mrs. Sairsburg of Cedar Falls; Mr. and Mrs. Harris Dickey and family of Emmetsburg.
