    At her home in Chicago, Ill., August 5, 1902, of a paralytic shock, Amelia Crandall Ordway.
    She was born in Ceres, N. Y., Oct. 31, 1847, the second of seven children born to Daniel L. and Susan Dennis Crandall, five of whom are still living. Her oldest son, Charles Eugene Peckham, also survives her. She experienced religion in a revival when about seventeen years of age, was baptized and joined the Portville Seventh-day Baptist church. She was afterward a member of different churches where she lived. In 1898 she was married to Ira J. Ordway, and was received into the Chicago church in whose fellowship she died. She was a woman of strong, simple, unquestioning faith, and of sweet, unselfish life. In days of trial she was true. She was dearly loved by all who knew her, for her whole life was characterized by steadfast, unselfish regard for the welfare of others. She was a most hospitable hostess, active in church work, faithful and winning in the more intimate relations of life. Hers was a face beautiful with sympathy.
    Services were conducted at the Chicago home by Pastor Wayland Wilcox. The funeral at Main Settlement, Aug. 8, was conducted by former Pastor L. C. Randolph and D. B. Coon. Text, 1 Cor. 13: 8, “Love never faileth.” A large congregation assembled to pay the tribute of love. L. C. R.
