The deceased’s maiden name was Eleanor M. Hazeltine. She was born at Busti, Chatauqua County, N.Y., Oct 17, 1842, and was a member of a family of eight children, five of whom survive her. Her early life was spent in teaching school after which she engaged in the Millinery business at Lansing, Iowa, at which place she was married to Mr. Temple April 8, 1877. She resided eight years at Lansing, seven years at York, Neb., and removed to Meriden two years previous to her death, where her husband engaged in the lumber business. Mrs. Temple was a scholarly and exemplary Christian woman, active in the church and deeply in love with mission work. At the age of 11 she united with the Congregational church at Kiantine, N.Y., and has ever been a consistent Christian and devoted wife and mother. At the time of her death she was president of the missionary society connected with the Presbyterian Church at Meriden.
She leaves a husband and one daughter, 8 years of age. In her death the people of Meriden feel that they have met with a great loss. In church and social circles she will long be missed, yet the people in their own grief do not forget the grief of the husband and daughter at the loss of one so noble and esteemed.
