Ufford, Harriet Wentworth

Rome Sentinel
August 19, 1914

Mrs. Harriet Ufford, for many years a resident of Lee, and for the last 23 years an inmate of the Masonic Home in Utica, died on Tuesday afternoon in that institution after a very short illness. She was in her 96th year and death was due to a sudden breaking down of the system. She was born in Lee 95 years ago the 10th of last June and all her life was spent there until going to Utica. She was nearly 50 years old when she married Charles Ufford. Her maiden name was Wentworth. Mr. Ufford died nearly 40 years ago and the widow remained in Lee until her advancing years necessitated some one looking after her. As she never had any children and having no near realitves a good home was provided (illegible) and her life there was a contented and happy one, despite the great afflication that came to her about 20 years ago when she lost her sight. She had been totally blind since.

Notwithstanding the loss of her sight she was able to do good sewing, mending and darning and took great pleasure in the use of her needles. Her memory and all her faculties except her sight remained almost perfect to the end and she was looked upon as one of the most remarkable women in the institution. Always in good spirits and with unusual ability for one of her years she was happy in doing for others and was greatly beloved by all who knew her and she kept abreast of the times and she knew of the things going on in the world through the kindness of those who had their sight. Mrs. Ufford is survived by two nephews, Mason N. Wentworth and Mr. N. B. Rockwell, all of this city. The remains will be interred in Evergreen Cemetery, Lee.
