Mrs. Palmer Is Called
Services Held For Well-Known Wallingford Woman Wednesday
Funeral services for Mrs. D. V. Palmer were held Wednesday, June 21st, from the Mahlum and Sandin funeral parlors at 1:30 p.m. and from the Wallingford Lutheran church at 2 p.m., with the Rev. L.G. Hinderaker officiating. Special songs were given by a mixed quartet of the Immanuel Lutheran church and two solos by Mr. Allan Hersliff.

Mrs. Palmer, whose maiden name was Adeline Perry Hawkins, was the daughter of William and Nancy Crutchlow Hawkins, born March 2, 1860 at Hayworth, Ill. She was the 11th child in a family of 13 and grew to young womanhood in the community of Heyworth, receiving her education there.

She was baptized into the Presbyterian church and held membership there for many years to come. In the later year, poor health has hindered her church attendance at Bloomington, Ill., at which place they made their home for 5 years; they moved to lake Park, Iowa and lived there until July 1919, when they moved to Wallingford, making their home on the east shore of High lake, where they have since lived. On Dec. 27th, 1943, the many friends and relatives gathered at the Wallingford [unreadable] and helped the Palmers celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.

Four children were born to Mr. And Mrs. Palmer; Hazel, now Mrs. Rickabough of LeMars, Ia., Zoe, now Mrs. Frank Rood of lake Park, Iowa; Etheral, now Mrs. Frank Schotka of Silvis, Ill, and Etheal, now Mrs. Ed Houghton of Bradenton, Fla.

Mrs. Palmer was a hard working woman. For many years she was a dressmaker at Lake Park. She will be remembered as a kind and loving wife and mother, who felt that there was no sacrifice too great to make for her family. Especially will the loss be keenly felt by her devoted husband who sought to give her the best of care during her lingering illness.

She passed away at her home on Sunday evening, June 18th at the age of 84 years, 3 months and 16 days. She had been in failing health for the past 6 years having undergone two major operations. Since this past January she has been confined to her bed, being given the best of medical care.

Those left to mourn her departure are: her husband, Mr. Palmer, 4 daughters, 20 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild, besides other relatives and friends. Blessed be her memory.

Interment was made in the High Lake Cemetery.
