Sunday’s Obituary – Rachel Rosanna Tracy Weeks

Mrs. Rachel Weeks Dies at End of Journey Home

Mrs. Rachel Weeks who reached the home of her nephew, Bryce Tracy southwest of York at seven o’clock Monday evening, was claimed by death some four hours later, closing her eyes on earthly scenes shortly after eleven o’clock.

In company with her sister, Mrs. Plummer, Mrs. Weeks, who has been in failing health for several months, made the long journey home from Whittier, California.  She was met at Grand Island by her relatives and taken to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bryce Tracy, who had offered her their hospitality when they learned of her sickness some weeks ago.  When she greeted her family Mrs. Weeks said, “Now I know I shall get well.”  Her anxiety to return to the home her girlhood had sustained her during the journey, but the weakened body could no longer endure the strain.

Mrs. Weeks was the daughter of John and Maria Tracy who came to York county in the early ’70s and made their home on a farm southwest of York.  She grew to womanhood and was married to Lewis Weeks who preceded her in death a number of years ago.  After the death of her husband Mrs. Weeks went to California where she has been living in late years.  Funeral services will be held from the Methodist church on Thursday, probably in the afternoon.  Definite arrangements await the arrival of relatives from a distance.
