Mrs. Delia DeWitt

Mrs. Delia DeWitt, wife of Mr. William DeWitt, was called to her heavenly rest Saturday night, August 27th, 1904, at her home in Brevent Park. She had been a patient sufferer from stomach trouble for a long period and bore up under her affliction with Christian fortitude, the disease finally causing her death. She was in her forty second year.

Mrs. DeWitt was born in Ireland. Her husband and four children survive her: Charles, aged 19; Helena 17, Delia 15, and Harry 9. She also leaves four sisters: Mrs. Elizabeth Allstrom of Atlantic Highlands, Mrs. Kate Thompson of Red Bank, Mrs. Celia Staff of Matawan, and Mrs. Sarah Ash of New Monmouth. Her father and brother survive her.

The funeral services were held the following Tuesday in St. Agnes¹ church of which she was a devout member, Rev. Father O¹Farrell officiating. The remains were interred in Mt. Olivet cemetary. The floral tributes showed the respect in which the deceased was held. They were many and beautiful.

The pallbearers were Thomas Dowd, James Martin, Thomas Jennings, Edward Oakes.
