HUBBARD - [Mary Brown Hubbard] - Mrs. Grandison A.
Gridley, of East Chemung place, was fatally injured at her home early Wednesday
morning. In attempting to close the shutters of a second story window she lost
her balance and fell out upon the lawn, striking on her head and shoulders. Her
husband heard her exclamation and saw her fall from the window. He immediately
hastened to her side and she was carried into the house, where Drs. Morse, Wey
and Palmer were soon in attendance. They found that Mrs. Gridley's left arm was
broken, her right wrist sprained and her head much bruised. The lade was
restored to consciousness and for some time was able to converse with her
family, although suffering great pain. She soon began to complain of severe
pains in her back, and the physicians reluctantly informed the family that she
had suffered internal injuries from which death must soon result. The dreadful
prediction proved true at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, when the spirit of the
noble woman took its flight to the realms of eternal day. With the passing of
her pure ---- the world lost one of its most priceless ----, a perfect
Christian woman, a faithful woman, true to her family, herself and her master,
in whose footsteps she always walked and trained her children to walk. Mrs.
Gridley was born in Penn Yan, NY, in 1828, her maiden name being Mary Brown
Hubbard. At the age of eight years she was bereaved in the death of her mother,
and then came to Elmira to live with her aunt, Mrs. Ira Gould. At the age of
seventeen Mrs. Gridley united with the old Congregational church society, which
later grew into the Park church, of which Mrs. Gridley was a most zealous
member until her death. Forty years ago she was united in marriage to Grandison
A. Gridley, and their married life was most pleasant. The union was blessed
with five children. One of them died in infancy more than twenty years ago.
Those who survive are Charles H. Gridley, William H. Gridley and Leonard C.
Gridley, of this city, and Mrs. Hattie Gridley Underhill, of Aurora. To these
and their father the sympathy of all is extended, for the death of this truly
good woman, faithful in all the duties of life, is a loss not only to the
family but to the city and the world, which has, alas too few like her. The
poor, who were always befriended by her; the neighbors and acquaintances, who
held her as a model of what a woman should be, and all who knew her had their
sentiments voiced at the funeral services when the Rev. T.K. Beecher spoke of
the deceased in the highest terms which language is capable of expressing. The
funeral was at 5 o'clock Friday afternoon and was conducted by Rev. Mr.
Beecher, while singing was by a quartette, composed of Miss McGuire, Mrs. B.C.
White, Mr. Parmenter and Mr. Curtiss. They sang "Nearer, My God, to
Thee," "Comfort Ye," and "In the Hour of Trial." At
the cemetery they chanted the twenty-third Psalm and Mr. Beecher pronounced the
benediction above the precious dust. The pall-bearers were Christopher
Proswick, Seymour Dexter, A.W. Ayres, A. Wyckoff, J.H. Barney, H.C. Spaulding,
Dwight Atwater and Dr. S.O. Gleason. - Elmira Gazette, 10 July 1887
