Miss Mary Clapper, an aged resident of Altoona, died Saturday morning at 6:30 at the home of her sister, Mrs. Susan
Edgely, at 1919 Eighth avenue, where she had been making her home for some time past. Her death was caused by a complication of diseases resultant from old age, she being confined to her bed for the past eleven months. She was born at Franklin Forge, Blair County, Dec. 8, 1833, and was a daughter of Henry and Susan Clapper, deceasecd. She is survived by one sister and one brother, Mrs. Susan Edgely with whom she made her home, and Henry Clapper, of Altoona. Miss Clapper was born blind and remained in this unfortunate condition all her life. But she bore up bravely under this affliction, and was always cheerful, towards her declining days when she became ill, bore her sufferings patiently and with great fortitude. She was a consistent member of the Grace Reformed church. The body was taken to Frankstown for interment.
