      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 27, 1944 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Manwarren District - Last Monday, April 17 occurred the death of Mrs. Mary E. Sherman of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. She was nearly 94 years old. Her husband, Nelson J. Sherman died in 1909 at their farm home in this place and since that time she had made her home with her daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Cyril J. Palms, first in Ashwood, later in Camden, then moved to Greenville, Pennsylvania, where Dr. Palms became a well known optometrist. In 1922 Mrs. Palms died leaving two children at ages of four and seven. Mrs. Sherman cared for the children several years. She was relieved later as Dr. Palms married again. At the death of her son-in-law, Dr. C. J. Palms in 1941, she went to live with her granddaughter, Marguerite who had become Mrs. William Keil. She was a Methodist and a great church worker. These last years have been happy years as she was able to serve her loved ones in spite of her advanced age. It can be truly said she never became old as she kept a youthful spirit and interest in everyday affairs. Her life has been a great inspiration to her many friends. Surviving are her grandchildren, Mr. and Mrs. William Keil, a grandson, Lt. Cyril S. Palms in United States Air Force under General MacArthur in Australia, and five great-grandchildren; a brother-in-law, Mr. H. A. Woodruff of Camden; a niece, Mrs. Nila Calkins and nephew, Mr. Dell Waite. The funeral was held in Greenville, Pennsylvania at the home of a friend, Mrs. H. Webster with the Methodist clergyman officiating. She was brought to Daysville cemetery for burial April 20 at 10 a.m. with Rev. Keil, Lutheran pastor of a church in Pittsburg, her grandson-in-law, officiating.

Mrs. Sherman, the former Miss Mary Manwaring, was born July 30, 1850, at Daysville near Mexico.

She received $30 for teaching during the fall and winter months at the school. Mrs. Sherman's husband, Nelson J. Sherman, died several years ago. From 1914 to 1942 Mrs. Sherman lived at Greenville. Surviving are two grandchildren, Mrs. Keil and Lt. Cyril Sherman Palms, on duty in the South Pacific. Burial was made in Daysville cemetery.
