"Grandma Tracy Answers Call. Reached Ninety-First Milestone and Enjoyed Good Health. Mrs. Cyprian Tracy, known as "Grandma" Tracy to all her neighbors and friends, the oldest resident of the township in which she lived, died at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. W. N. Irish, July 19, 1925. Her maiden name was Della Wardwell and she was born in Cauga County, N .Y., in 1834, making her at her death just a bit over ninety-one years of age. In 1850 she moved with her paraents to Hillsdale County, Michigan. Three years later occurred her marriage to William Gardner. Three children were born to them, Ella, Augusta, and Lemuel. In 1865 she was married a second time to Cyprian Tracy. Two children , Mrs. John Ouderkirk and Harry Tracy, both of Rosebush, were born to this union. In 1870 the family came to Isabella county where Mr. Tracy died in 1882 and where Mrs. Tracy has lived ever since. Two weeks ago, apparently as well as usual, she came to her granddaughter's, north of Rosebush, to visit and was there taken ill. Loving hands minstered to her during the two weeks of her illness. She leaves four children, 24 grandchildren and 48 great-granchildren. She was a firm believer in the Christian faith and united with a Methodist class in her community many years ago. Her life was one of helpfulness and blessing to all who knew her. Funeral services were held from the home and the Center Methodist Church last Tuesday, July 14, and she was laid to rest beside her husband in Riverdale, Mt. Pleasant. Her pastor, Rev. LeRoy Whitney officiated at the services. -The Clare (Michigan) Sentinel, Friday, July 31, 1925
