Mrs. Rachel A. Garrison Dies At The Age Of 86 Years
She Was Born at Paterson buty Had Lived at Red Bank Thirty Years and Had Been an Invalid For Sixteen Years
Mrs. Rachel Ann Garrison, widow of Abram Garrison, died this morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William A. Cole of Wallace
street. Death was due to bronchitis. Mrs. Garrison had been an invalid for sixteen years, but she had been sick with bronchitis
only about a year. She was 86 years old. She was born at Paterson, but had lived at Red Bank about thirty years. Besides Mrs.
Cole she leaves another daughter, Anna, who lives with Mrs. Cole, and she also leaves two sons, John B. Garrison of Red Bank and
Charles Garrison of New York. The funeral will be held on Friday at half-past three o'clock at the house. Rev. S. H. Thompson
of the Presbyterian church, of which Mrs. Garrison was a member, will have charge of the service. The body will be taken to Paterson
on Saturday for burial.
Mrs. Garrison was a woman of engaging character and of charming personality. Although she had been an invalid for so many years, and
had been confined to the house nearly the whole of that time, she retained her interest in passing events. Her gentleness and lovely
disposition made her beloved by every one who knew her, and her death will be felt as a personal loss by many outside of her own family circle.
Per Death Notice - Interment at Cedar Lawn cemetery at Paterson at the convenience of the family.
