morning of pneumonia, after a ten
days’ illness. She was 71 years of
age and was born in Berwick, the
daughter of Charles and Belinda

ago she married J. Fred Shackford of
Eaton and the couple came to Conway
where their home has been during
the whole of their married life. They
have a daughter, Mrs. Hazel Bohanan
of Glendale, Calif, and a son, Charles,
Shackford of Eaton.
For many years Mrs. Shackford
was closely associated with her hus-
band in the general store which they
conducted and later in the periodical
store which succeeded the larger enter-
prise.
Although not taking an active part
in the social life of the village, Mrs.
Shackford was well known to a wide
circle of friends, and was a familiar
figure in the community. She leaves
few near relatives as she had no
brothers or sisters. Besides her hus-
band and children she leaves one
granddaughter, Ruth Bohanan of
Glendale, California.
Funeral services at the Congrega-
tional Church at 2 p. m. with the
Rev. Charles Moorehouse in attend-
ance. The interment was in the vil-
lage cemetery.
