AGED MRS. PATTON
Stricken with apoplexy while conversing with a friend on the telephone
yesterday afternoon Mrs. Augusta Anna Patton, aged 80, widow of Miles
J. Patton and one of Farrell's best known and most highly respected
residents, died at her home, 646 Emerson avenue.
Mrs. Patton celebrated her 80th birthday anniversary last week. She
apparently was in her accustomed good health and her death came with
shocking suddenness. Mrs. Patton was sewing when called to the telephone.
She had been talking only a short time when she made the remark she was
not feeling well and collapsed. Dr. R/D. Nicholls
was summoned, but she passed away in about a half hour.
Mrs. Patton was born in Saxony, Germany, March 18, 1844. She came to
Buffalo when five years old with her parents. In 1862 she removed to
Sharon, where she lived until she took up residence in Farrell, 24 years
Mrs. Patton had been a member of the Protected Home Circle for the past
37 years. She was a woman of kindly disposition and many friends will be
grieved to learn of her death. She is survived by one son, Joseph
A. Patton of Portsmouth, O, three daughters, Mrs.
Ashton Tribby of Petroleum, Mrs. Viola Metz
and Miss Hazel Mae Patton at home, nine
grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Funeral arrangements have not
