MRS. ANN B. BARKER DIES AT HOME OF SON WHEN 95 YEARS OLD
Mrs. Ann Bennett Barker, 95 years old, widow of William Barker, and resident of Rockford 28 years, died Thursday morning at 2:25 o'clock at the home of her son, William Barker, 908 Rockton avenue. She had been in failing health for a year from infirmities of age, and a fall suffered last Sunday hastened her death.
She was born in Nottingham, England, Nov. 28, 1820, and came to the United States 37 years ago.
Her husband died 48 years ago. She is survived by the son at whose home she was cared for in her declining years; three grandsons, William A. Barker, Glen road; Arthur Barker, Harlem road, and Harold Barker, 908 Rockton avenue; and four great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Barker was a woman of modest worth and Christian life, who entirely merited the rich regard in which she was held by a wide circle of friends.
Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the William Barker residence, the Rev. E. R. McCorkle officiating. Burial will be in Greenwood cemetery.
