Willard, Carrie P. (? - 4 Jul 1913)

Mrs. George Willard died at her home in Meominster, Mass., July 4th, 1913, after a brief illness. The funeral services were held there the following Monday.

Mrs. Willard’s maiden name was Carrie P. Gallaher, and she is well remembered by many of the older residents of Neillsville. She was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. L.W. Gallaher, who came to Clark County early in the 1860’s, Mrs. Gallaher owning the planing mil here for many years. She was a resident here until 1890, when she was married to Mr. Willard. They then made their home at Dalles, Oregon, until about ten years ago, when they moved to Mr. Willard’s old home in Massachusetts.

She is survived by her husband, two children and five brothers.

Mrs. Willard was a devout Christian woman, and had been a member of the Methodist Church since her childhood. During her life here she has been an active member of the church. She had considerable talent as a musician, and for a number of years she was one of the Methodist Church Choir. She was a devoted wife and mother, and one whose friendship was greatly valued by all who knew her.
