Carrie E. Lancto

(September 14, 1849-December 25, 1915)







Mrs. E.J. Lancto passed away at her home in Jay street Saturday morning, Dec. 25th. While Mrs. Lancto had been an invalid for several years and seriously so for a few months past, the final change came most unexpectedly, but in the peaceful, beautiful way which she herself would have chosen.


Christmas eve Mrs. Lancto was about the house making quiet preparations for the Christ child's day, which was also to be her own natal day into her eternal home. At 7:30 the following morning, Christmas morning, without a struggle or without apparent knowledge of the going, she passed from a quiet sleep to her long rest.


Mrs. Lancto was born in Fort Covington, N.Y. in 1849, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Luther Bartlett, whose home was afterward in Norwood, N.Y. Here, at Norwood she was married to Edward J. Lancto in 1874 and at this place much of her early married life was spent. In 1891 Mr. and Mrs. Lancto came to Ogdensburg and since then have made their home in this city.


Mrs. Lancto is survived by her husband and by a sister, Mrs. A.C. Whiting of Burlington, Vt., and by two brothers, Mendell T. Bartlett and William M. Bartlett, both of Norwood.


Mrs. Lancto's long years of invalidism have kept her from many active interests outside of her home life, but her sympathies have always been broad and her interests for those things which are highest and best. Her regrets, often expressed, were that she could not be of more actual service along those lines, but we are sure the kind Father will say, "She hath done what she could." Many will miss her loyal friendship and sympathetic interest in their welfare.


The funeral was held at the house this afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. W.C. MacIntyre officiating. The remains will be taken to Norwood tomorrow for the interment.
