Rachel Delilah "Leta" Clark Payne of Berkshire

Leta Clark Payne, wife of the late John Payne, died Tuesday night in the home of her son, Henry Payne, at North Berkshire.

Mrs. Payne was born in 1870 in Richford, the daughter of George and Martha Clark. All her younger life was spent in Richford.

In 1888, she was married to John Payne and went to Berkshire to live.

Sometime in September, she suffered from a slight stroke and about a week before her death, became worse.

She is survived by two sons, Parsons Payne of Ithaca, and Henry Payne, of North Berkshire, where she made her home.

Services for her were held Friday afternoon in the church at Richford. The Rev. J. Albert Hammond, pastor, officiated.

Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery in Berkshire.
