Obituary

Death of Denslow E. Herrick

Our community was shocked and saddened last Thursday afternoon by the sad accident and death of our much-respected townsman, Denslow E. Herrick. While repairing the roof of Eri Batchelder's silo, while apparently pulling off a board, he lost his balance, falling backwards several feet to the ground. He was found in an unconscious condition and breathed only a few minutes. He was carried to the home of his daughter, Mrs. M. E. Chase, with whom he lived, who is grief-stricken over the sad event.

Mr. Herrick was a loving, devoted father and will be greatly missed in her home, which was always made pleasant for him and will also be sadly missed in the community. He was born in the home where he lived nearly all the 77 years of his life. He was a great worker and willing helper whenever his services were required.

His funeral was attended from his late home last Sunday at 10 o'clock, Rev. George O. Howe of Randolph officiating, speaking words of consolation to the sorrowing relatives and large concourse of friends who gathered to pay their last respects to one they all liked so well. A profusion of flowers from loving friends covered and banked the casket. The bearers were Eri Ditty, U. A. Clark, Edward Sprague, Zolva Chase, his comrades of the G. A. R.; I. N. Abbott was funeral director; interment was in the Center cemetery by the side of his wife and son.

Among those from out of town to attend the funeral were Mr. Herrick's nieces, Mrs. Gertrude Goodrich and daughter from St. Johnsbury, Misses Mabel and Mathilde Foster of Burlington, Mr. and Mrs. Zolva Chase of Woodbury, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Marsh and Harry Marsh of Wallingford, Mr. and Mrs. George E. Mason of Randolph.
