Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - Mrs. Annie (Bennett) Nivison
Mrs. Annie Nivison, wife of John L. Nivison of Oceanic, died on Saturday at the state hospital at Trenton, where she had been a patient for two years. Her mind began to fail about four years ago. The body was brought to her home at Oceanic and the funeral was held at the Methodist church yesterday morning. Rev. J. W. Nickelson conducted the service. The sermon was preached by Rev. S. W. Knipe. Rev. M. S. Messier of Oceanport assisted in the service. The body was buried at Asbury Park. The bearers were William Emery, Jr., George Emery, Dewitt Scott, Henry Riddle and Elisha Keach.
Mrs. Nivison's maiden name was Bennett and she was born near Freehold. She was fifty years old. She leaves two sisters, Mrs. E. Hart Havens of Freehold and Miss Maggie Bennett of Asbury Park, and she leaves also two brothers at Asbury Park. She had no children but she leaves two step-children, Mrs. Edward Jeffrey and Arthur Nivison, both of Oceanic. These two never knew any other mother than Mrs. Nivison, and she was as good to them as an own mother could possibly have been. Before her affliction she was very active in the Methodist church at Oceanic. She was organist of the church, president of the ladies' aid society, secretary of the Epworth league, treasurer of the Sunday-school and of the missionary society, and a member of the board of stewards.
