Guilford Register

Mrs. Elizabeth H. Delano
In the passing of Elizabeth Hartwell
Delano, wife of the late Hon. W.
W. Delano, of Abbot, which occurred
October 12, the people of this vicinity
have met with a distinct loss, one
that they will appreciate more as
they remember her many excellent
qualities of mind and womanhood.
She was always a leader in the best
things of life, modest and unassum-
ing, of fine education and a wonder-
ful knowledge of all the best in lit-
erature. She had a splendid library,
an accumulation of many years of
the choicest books from which she was
ever willing to allow others to glean
help and inspiration. While
well filled with works of fiction it
was especially valuable to the student
who could find books of value in
any line of study they were pursuing.
She was a valued member of
church, Grange and the Willing
Workers. She was born in St. Albans
74 years ago. When a young
woman she taught school very suc-
cessfully in the West. She was mar-
ried to Mr. Delano in Abbot over 40
years ago and has always resided
here. For the past few winters she
has lived with her daughter, Helen
in Yonkers, New York. Returning
to the home she loved so well, her
failing health did not allow her to
return to New York.
During her last illness her sons and
daughter, were with her, and all that
loving hands could do was done for
She was buried among a profusion
of flowers, that she loved so well
under the rites of the Episcopal
church, of which she had long been
a member. She leaves to mourn her
passing, two sons and one daughter,
Edward of Harrisburg, Pa., Phillip,
of Guilford and Miss Helen of Yon-
kers, N. Y., and Mrs. Louise Delano,
of Hyde Park, Mass., widow of her
son, Richard, who died several year
ago. All were present at the funeral.
She also leaves several grandchildren.
