Obits - NJ - 1900 - Mrs. Emma Lambertson Willett
Emma, wife of Thomas Willett of Scobeyville, died of heart disease on Tuesday of last week, aged 64 years. Mrs. Willett had been blind for the past
three years but she enjoyed her usual good health until a few days before her death. Mrs. Willett had been a member of the Baptist church over forty
years, and had always been active in church work. She was familiar with the bible and a retentive memory enabled her to quote passages of scripture at
length. She was a devoted wife and mother and a kind neightor. Her death is mourned by a large circle of friends.
Mrs. Willett's maiden name was Lambertson. She leaves two daughters and two sons, all of whom are married. They are Anna O., wife of John Grant of Morganville; Harriet, wife of Sydney Beers, who lives at home; Henry Willett of Marlboro and Rulif P. Willett of Matawan. One son, William, died a number of years ago. He was unmarried. Mrs. Willett leaves also a brother, Jacob Lambertson of Keyport.
The funeral was held on Friday at one o'clock at her late residence. The sermon was preached by Rev. S. E. Cunningham, pastor of the
Colt's Neck Reformed church, and he was assisted by Rev. Oscar Barchwitz, pastor of the Eatontown Baptist church. The body was buried in the Holmdel
cemetery. The pall bearers were Jacob Shutts, Daniel Shutts, Sr., Frank E. Heyer, Daniel Polhemus, John H. Polhemus and William H. Foster.
