Gillett, of Cresco, and a sister, Mrs. Hattie Price, of Hill City, Tennessee.
Mrs. Church was converted in Albany, N. Y„ during her girlhood and was always loyal to Christ as her Lord and Savior and raised her family in His service. She was a member of the Congregational church from its beginning in New Oregon in an early day.
