    Lucinda E. Cottrell was born at Almond, Allegany county, N. Y., September 5, 1846. She was the oldest daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth McHenry Cottrell. When about the age of six years, soon after the death of her mother, she with her father and younger brother Ormanzo, moved to Utica, Wis. Early in life she was baptized by Rev. A. B. Prentice, and joined the Utica, Wis., S. D. B. church.
    March 19, 1868, she was married to Henry F. Crandall, at Milton Junction, Wis., where they made there home for several years. Leaving Milton Junction they moved to Dennison, Ia., then to North Loup, Neb., and later to Farina, Ill., making their home at each of these places for several years. In March, 1900, they moved to Milton, Wis., where they resided up to the time of her death, June 5, 1919.
    She leaves to mourn her death, her husband, and five children: Wilmer H., Harry B., Fred A., Mrs. Maud Hurley., and Mrs. Floyd Coon - all of Milton - thirteen grandchildren, a step-mother, Mrs. Rebecca Cottrell, and a half-brother, Eldon Cottrell, beside a large number of other relatives and friends.
    She was a woman of sterling qualities, though quiet and modest in her ways. She possessed that inner power which enabled her to win many friends, and was loved and respected by all. Her ideals were of the highest type. She was never satisfied with merely existing but was constantly striving to live up to her ideals and make life worth the living.
    In August 1918, her health began to fail but not until about nine weeks ago was she confined to her bed. Her suffering was intense, but through it all she manifested that same sweet patient, unselfish spirit, and strong faith in God, which constituted her character. When she realized she could not recover, and up to her last conscious moments, she was still planning for the future of her husband and children, and looked forward with happiness to the meeting with her loved ones gone before.
    The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Geo. W. Burdick, assisted by Pastor Henry N. Jordan. Remarks were suggested by the last part of the Fourth chapter of 1st Thessalonians, principally the last verse.
    The pall bearers were her sons, Wilmer, Harry and Fred Crandall, her son-in-law Floyd Coon, her grandson, Rex Hurley, and Loyal Hull.
    She was tenderly laid to rest in the Milton Junction cemetery, amid a profusion of flowers, to await the coming of her Saviour. G. W. B.
