95 Year Old Mother of Local Woman Dies

Mrs. Oscar Morris returned last week from Denver where she was called because of the death of her mother, Mrs. Lenora Westfall, who had been making her home with another daughter, Mrs. Charles Sisson.

Mrs. Westfall lived in Greeley from 191918 to 1925. She was 95 years old last Nov 12 and leaves more than a hundred living decendants, including 68 great grandchildren and eleven great great grandchildren.

Seven of her 11 children still living include Mrs. Morris and Mrs. Sisson, Mrs. Cora Fields of Portland, Ore., formerly of Greeley, Robert of Denver, George of Galesburg, Ill., Rev. John Westfall of Point Arena, Calif. And Clyde, who is a Spanish American War veteran now living in an old soldiers home at Hot Springs S. Dak.

Although in poor health for the past five years, Mrs. Westfall had not been confined to her bed until about a week before her death and was quite active for her 95 years.
