    Entered into rest, Monday, Oct 12, 1908, in New York City, Lucy Titsworth, widow of Truman Wilcox Saunders. Mrs. Saunders was born in Plainfield, N. J., Oct. 17, 1847, and was the daughter of Edward B. and Ann Dunn Titsworth. In early life she pledged her loyalty to the Saviour and united with the S. D. B. Church of Plainfield, during the pastorate of Rev. James Bailey. She was a student at Alfred University for a short time and afterwards became a very successful teacher. She was married to Truman Wilcox Saunders, July 6, 1876, and removed to Milwaukee, where they made their home until his sad death in 1882. She then removed to Williamstown, Mass., where she united with the Congregational Church.
    The last years of her life were spent with her son, Dr. Laurence Saunders, in New York City, from whose home she was called to the Home above. The funeral services were held at their residence, 34 West 55th St., and were conducted by the Rev. Willis H. Butler, of Northampton, Mass., a former pastor. The interment was beside her husband in Milton, Wis., where a brief service was conducted by the Rev. L. A. Platts, D. D., assisted by Rev. W. C. Daland and Rev. Jordan Titsworth.
    Mrs. Saunders was a rare soul, combining great strength of character with a cheerfulness and sweetness of disposition which made her life a most beneficial influence.
    She had the rare faculty of entering into the lives of young people, with many of whom she was brought into close relationship during the greater part of her life, and many have caught sweet inspiration and helpfulness from their contact with her.
    Hers was a life of high and noble purpose, marked by strong courage, sweet charity and obedient faith in God and humanity.
    Her son, Dr. Saunders, and one brother, David E. Titsworth of Plainfield, survive her.
