Last Friday morning at 4:30 o`clock, occured the passing from life for Mrs. Abbie Fish, aged 87 years, at her home, Vine Cottage, on Putnam Avenue, this village.

Keen of intellect and with a sense of humor fossessed by few, Mrs. Fish enjoyed life fully. She was a great reader and retained many choice bits of verse to impart to her friends. She was young in spirit and enjoyed having young folk about her. She wa active and about her home until Sunday October 29,1933 when she was stricken with a shock of paralysis from which she never rallied, although everything possible was done and the best care lavished upon her by family and friends.

The writer knew her as a kind helpful friend and one ready to assist whenever and wherever possible. Hers was a dominant spirit that bowed to none and asked few favors, yet she was ever ready to welcome to her home any and all of a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
