Name:   Carrie (Mourey) Carpenter

From:  The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania
Date:  Wednesday, March 12, 1919

Mrs. Carrie Mourey Carpenter died at her home in Arlington, N.J., March 6, after an illness of only a few hours.  She had been apparently in her usual good health and was engaged in conversation with one of her neighbors over the telephone when she became unconscious at 5 o'clock, Tuesday, March 4, and died Thursday at 1 o'clock, without regaining consciousness.  Although Mrs. Carpenter had been subject to much illness for the past four years, her friends believed her to be better and sudden death was a great shock.

Carrie Mourey Carpenter was born in Farmington, April 19, 1871, the second child of Ira H. and Fannie C. Mourey.  At Christmas 1890, she was married to Philip T. Carpenter, of Little Marsh and to this union were born three children, Miss Blanche Carpenter, Mrs. Pearl Sydow, and Lou C. Carpenter.  The family resided in Little Marsh for several years and then removed to Arlington N. J. where they have since resided.

Mrs. Carpenter was a devoted Christian and a member of  the M. E. Church of Arlington.  She had not a thought that was not a gentle one, not one that did not hold all the world in the arms of its kindness.  She was to her friends what the sunshine is to the world and this eclipse to them brings both darkness and chill.  She was always gentle, lovable and her sweet face made sunshine in shady places.  If strangers felt the charm of her rare courtesy and happy, sunny temperament, how much more so to the members of her own family upon whom she lavished all the sweet earnestness and love of her mind and nature.

The remains were brought to the home of Mrs. Carpenter's mother in Elkland where the funeral was held Sunday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Chattin officiating and she was laid to rest in the Elkland Cemetery, beside her father who died three years ago.

She is survived by her husband, three children, her mother; two sisters, Mrs. Alice McCallum and Mrs. Lyda Baker and one brother, L. C. Mourey.  The sympathy of this community go out to the bereaved family.
