ST. JOHNSBURY CENTER. Deatk tf Mrs. Powers. Julia Nichols Powers was born June 19. of a family of four children. Her father was Joseph H. Nichols, and her mother's maiden name was Louise Pope; her home the place known as the 1 owtr i-arm m uie aiai uaguuui- hood. When 12 years old she had an attack nf that terrible disease, spinal menin gitis, the effect following her through life. Xnremher 18. 1682. she was united in marriaee to Henry C. Powers, son of Frank Powers. In 1890 Mr. Powers purchased the Cotton Dickinson place on River street, which has since been their home. Four years ago, in Dtcemlier, Mrs. Powers had an apoplectic shock and another in the March following. From these she recovered sufficiently to assume many of her household duties and meet her friends socially. Last December Mr. and Mrs. Powers went to St. Johnsbury to spend the winter in the home of her brother-in-law, Crawford Ranney, which had been made desolate by the death of her sister a little morethan three months ago. January 21st while visiting her aunt, Mrs. Jones, in Paddocks Village, she was taken suddenly ill and soon after being carried home became unconscious, remaining so most of the time until Friday morning at 2 o'clock when She passed the "Harbor Bar"; passed from pain and suffering into the light of perfect day and rest. The funeral was on Sunday afternoon j and the services were conducted by Rev. P. B. Fisk of Plamfield and Kev. A. Francis Walch of St. Johnsbury. The burial was at St. Johnsbury Center in the family lot in the cemetery on the "Hill," that City of Silence and'Rest. Mrs. Powers leaves a husband, and a brother, W. G. Nichols of Montana. She was a charter member of the Wide Awake Grange and for seven years secretary of the same. She took great interest in the organization and in all its members, attending the meetings as long as she was able. Mrs. Powers was a sweet womanly woman, strong in her affections and tender in her sympathies. She was beloved by her neighbors and acquaintances. " Greatly hampered by the effect of the disease of her childhood, she took her life as it was given to her, making it as beautiful as she could. She carried sunshine by her cheerfulness, and her hopeful spirit gladdened many a discouraged one. Her patience in suffering was wonderful and her whole life was brave. Her church attendance was Congregational and, although not a member, attested by her life that she was one of the Lord's children, of which He has many kinds, and He needs them all.
