Effie McFarlane to Anna Carlisle March 12, 1922

Moline, Ill Mar. 12, 1922

Dear Cousin Anna,

Remembering the letters exchanged between mother and Aunt Sarah and your own letters at the time of her death I thought you might be interested to know of mother’s passing. She left us Jan. 20 and we took her to our old home, Waukegan, Ill., and laid her by my father. She had a light stroke of paralysis the 1st of Oct.

but recovered quickly and almost entirely. She had her second stroke Jan 8. and lingered till the 20th. She was unable to speak after the second stroke. She just gradually slept away the last week.

She has always lived with me and I am terribly lonely but glad she didn’t linger long in that state. My little three year old daughter is lost of company and comfort.

Truly yours,
Effie Belden McFarlane
404 – 4th ave.
