Miss Charity Greer

The East Liverpool Tribune


Passes Away While Engaged in Conversation With Mrs. Clark Moore

Miss Charity Greer, aged 62, died suddenly at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon of heart trouble at the home of Clark Moore in Avondale street. She was seated in a large rocking chair and had just finished replying to Mrs. Moore, who inquired how she was feeling, when she suddenly leaned forward and in a few minutes was dead.

Mrs. Greer had not been feeling well for sometime, but since Sunday her condition seemed to have greatly improved and the hopes of the family had been raised.

The deceased had been a member of the Longs Run Presbyterian church since childhood and had lived a consistent Christian life. She possessed a sweet disposition and was beloved and esteemed by all those who knew her. The news of her sudden demise was learned with deep regret by the many friends.

Miss Greer was taken into the home of the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Fisher at the age of seven and remained with them until nine years ago when the old home was broken up.

Since that time she had been making her home with Mr. and Mrs. Clark Moore and family, where her aged foster mother, the late Mrs. Fisher, died 15 years ago.

The bereaved family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their sorrow. The funeral services will be held from the Clark Moore residence tomorrow at 2 o'clock, the Rev. J. N. Swan or the Rev. Mr. Bryson, of Calcutta officiating. Burial will be made in Riverview cemetery.
