Death of Mrs. Paddock
Mrs. A. E. Paddock died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Kauffman, last Friday. She had been in fairly good health until last summer when she suffered a stroke of paralysis and since that time she failed gradually until the end came. The remains were brought to her former home in Grundy Center Saturday. Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Keeler, were held in the Methodist church Monday afternoon. Interment was made in Clark's cemetery.
Miss Emeline Swineford was born at Ashland, Ohio, on March 28, 1841. She spent her girlhood days with her parents at that place until about 1866 when she came to Iowa. She made her home with her sister, Mrs. Frederick Gier, who then lived near Marshalltown. It was there that she met and married Mr. A. E. Paddock on Aug. 27, 1871.
Upon the day of their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Paddock came to Grundy Center to make their home and this was always their home.
Mr. Paddock died on Feb. 19, 1900. To them were born seven children, four of whom died in infancy. The three daughters surviving them are Miss A. Estella Paddock, National Sec'y of the Y.W.C.A. in China, who is now stationed at Shanghai; Miss Flora B. Paddock of Ft. Dodge, Ia., and Mrs. R. E. Kaufman of Morrison.
Mrs. Paddock is the last of a family of ten children.
