Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business.
All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

ALLEN Geraldine Kilmer
On the morning of Friday, March 25, 2011, Geraldine (Allen) Kilmer of Canton died quietly at the home of her daughter after a brief illness. She was 81 years of age. Born March 3, 1930 in Troy, Pa., she was the daughter of Harry C. and Nettie (Van Horn) Allen. Known to family and friends as "Jerry", she grew up on the family farm in East Troy.

Kilmer, and together they shared 47 years. She served for several years as a police officer in Canton Borough. After her children were grown Jerry worked for 23 years at the Ames Linen Service in Cortland, N.Y., retiring at the age of 72.

She also was active in the Antique Tractor Club in Troy. Never one to mince words, Jerry called things as she saw them. She commanded respect and offered the same in return. She could be feisty and opinionated when necessary, but could also be witty, self-effacing disarming and engaging. Her dry sense of humor endeared her to all who knew her, especially the members of her extended family, who always came first in her life. Even during her final days she found ways to bring smiles to those in attendance. Jerry is survived by her son, Lee R. (Lee M.)
