Tupper, Maria Barnard

Rome Sentinel
February 1, 1887

On Saturday at 8 pm after months of wasting disease and patient suffering, Mrs. Maria Barnard Tupper, wife of Edward B. Tupper, died at her home, 113 Liberty Street, in her 43rd year. About eighteen months ago the deceased underwent a severe attack of pneumonia, and for days hovered between life and death. This terrible disease left the patient in a weakened and debilitated condition and she drifted into consumption. Possessed of a strong constitution and great vitality, she made a determined battle against the inroad of disease. Nothing that loving friends and relatives could do was left undone. All was vain, however. The dread disease slowly but surely sapped her life away. She was not wholly confined to her bed until a short time before her death. During her last few weeks on earth she suffered severe and excruciating pain. She was very patient through her long illness and no complaint escaped her lips. She desired much to live for her husband and two little children, but when she came to know that she must go she was calm and resigned, praying in her moments of pain that death might soon come to her relief. Her last day was peaceful and free from suffering, and when she died her spirit took its departure so quietly that the friends about her bedside hardly realized that the end had come and that the one they loved so well was at rest. Mrs. Tupper was born at Lee (State Road) and was a daughter of the late John Barnard. About twenty years ago she came to this city with her mother and family and remained here till he death. For about eleven years she, with her sister, formerly Miss Etta Barnard, now Mrs. James L. Keith, was employed in the furnishing store of H. Hannahs. Possessed of a very genial and sunny disposition, she made friends rapidly and kept them easily. In October 1880 she was married to Edward B. Tupper of this city. Her husband, a daughter aged five years and a son aged one and one-half years survive; also her aged mother, Mrs. Mary Barnard of this city, four brothers, John Barnard of Lee and Henry, Edward and Jay Barnard of Rome, and three sisters, Mrs. C. F. Keith, and Mrs. James Elwell of Rome and Mrs. James L. Keith of Rockford, Ill. The family of eight children is first broken by the death of Mrs. Tupper.
