Bryant, Jane I. (2 FEB 1840 - 26 APR 1928)

Mrs. James H. Bryant, for many years a resident of Colby, Wis., died at Hoquim, Wash, April 26, 1928, chronic endocarditis being the cause of her departure to that "undiscovered country from whose borne no traveler returns." The remains were taken by train to Spencer, from where F. W. Lulloff autoed the body to Colby. Funeral services were held at the Colby Methodist Church Wednesday afternoon, Rev. F. A. Fahlgren officiating, and interment made in the Colby Cemetery.

The deceased was born in Chester, Vermont, Feb. 2, 1840, thus reaching the age of eighty-eight years, two months and four days. She was married to James H. Bryant March 24, 1870, moved to Appleton in 1876 and in 1879 came to Colby. In Dec. 1924, she moved to Hoquiam, Wash., and lived there until she died. She leaves to mourn her loss one son, William H. Bryant, and one daughter, Cora J. Bryant, her husband having preceded her in death nearly twenty-four years ago.

She was a charter member of the Isaac N. Earl Women's Relief Corps and also a member of the Baptist Church.

She had the respect and love of all who knew her, and like all our early pioneers, never forgot the hospitable ways of our early settlers. No one was more willing to aid the suffering and cheer the despondent. But now she is gone, for the great destroyer had placed his signet on her brow and today, many older Colbyites who loved her living mourn her dead.
