Mrs. Palmer was a devoted member of the Methodist Episcopal church and she died in the faith. The funeral took place from the family home at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon and was conducted by her late pastor, Rev. W. L. Austin. Flowers and the presence of many friends indicated the love and esteem felt for her in the community. The interment was in the Geneva cemetery.
