Mrs Fenn of Cat Creek, died, Sept. 20, after a long illness, and the remains were taken to Chelsea, Mich.  for burial.  Mrs. Elizabeth A. Fenn was born in the State of New York, Oct. 18, 1826, and died Sept. 20, 1894, aged 67 years, 11 months and 2 days.  She was a great sufferer during her sickness, but was patient and resigned.  She was an earnest follower of Jesus for 50 years of her life, as a member of the Congregational church.  The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. J. Turner, of Hersey, at the residence of George Fenn, son of deceased, on Friday at 4:30 p.m.  During the few years that she resided in Hersey township she had endeared herself to the neighbors by her earnest christian character.
