Mrs. Hidlay was converted at an early age and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church. She was a faithful member till the time of her death.

A short time before her death she told her children she was going home to Jesus.

She leaves today five children, seventeen grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren besides a host of friends.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Rev. Douglass in change. The sermon was from the text, "Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad for great is your reward in Heaven."

The church was crowded with the friends assembled to do honor to the memory of this good woman. Interment followed in Clearfield Cemetery where she was laid by the side of her husband so recently gone before.
