DEATH OF MRS. R. H. REEVES
She Had Lived In This Community Since Girlhood
Mrs. Reeves, wife of Robert H. Reeves, of Seney, died at an early hour on Sunday morning at her home after a long and lingering illness in which she suffered greatly.
Mrs. Reeves was one of the pioneer residents of this vicinity, coming here with her parents when a girl. She was born in Kent, England, on November 16, 1855, her maiden name being Lucy Potter. When she was a baby her parents came to this country and to Seney in 1869. She was united in marriage with Robert Reeves in 1875.
She is survived by her husband, two children, Paul Reeves and Mrs. May Manning, of this county, and her aged father, Thomas Potter, who lives at Sheldon.
The funeral services were held at the Seney church yesterday afternoon, Rev. B.
Watson officiating, and were largely attended by old friends and neighbors. Mrs. Reeves was a devout member of the church. She chose the text from her sermon, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”
Mrs. Reeves was universally respected and beloved in the community where she spent nearly all her life.
