Obituary

GOODRICH

The community was suddenly shocked to learn of the death of a long-time resident, and much-respected citizen, Frank Goodrich, which occurred Monday, June 12, in Colorado Springs, where he had gone to spend the winter. Death was due to angina pectoris. He was a kind neighbor, and a loving husband and father, and will be greatly missed by everyone.

He was born in Constable, N. Y., March 19, 1846, and when nineteen years of age he enlisted in the Civil War, in Company C. Third Regiment, New York Cavalry.

In 1876 he married Margaret Provo, of Canada. They moved to Plymouth 33 years ago and has lived here ever since, except one year spent in Ludlow. Besides his wife he leaves nine children to mourn his loss; Thomas Goodrich, Mrs. Laura Riley, and Mrs. Petellie of Plymouth; Frank Goodrich jr., and Mrs. Lily Kinney, of Rutland, Henry Goodrich, of Fitchburg, Mass., Mrs. Lottie Buffum, of Washington, N. H., Mrs. Nellie Smart, of Keene, N. H., and Mrs. Bessie Jones, of Springfield. He also left two sisters, and two brothers, Miss Margaret Goodrich and Mrs. Sophia of Adams., Mass., Thomas Goodrich, of Richford, Zeb Goodrich of Plymouth, and several grand and great-grandchildren.

Funeral services were held at the church at Plymouth Notch, Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 1 o'clock, Rev. W. J. Balou officiating, W. E. Lamere funeral director. Mrs. W. W. Stickney sang two solos. "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere", and "Lead Me Kindly Light", accompanied by Miss Gilson, organist. Six soldiers of the World War were bearers - Zeb S. Goodrich, Elmer Prevo, Leonard Gardner, Maynard Fuller, Lewis Rogers, and Ferris Ayer.
