PRINGLE, Mary (Boyle)

    Johnstown Tribune, 08 Feb 1912, Contributed by Diann Olsen

Mrs. Mary Pringle, widow of Samuel Pringle, died at 3:15 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hess, about one and one-half miles from Wilmore. Had she lived until the 28th of next month, Mrs. Pringle would have been 94 years old. Her funeral will be held Saturday. The cortege will leave the Hess home at 9:30 o'clock, going to the Wilmore United Brethren Church, where services will be conducted by the Rev. B. C. Shaw. Interment will be in the Pringle Hill Cemetery. Mrs. Mary Pringle was a Boyle before her marriage. She was born in Lancaster County. Boyle's Curve, east of Summerhill, was named after her parents, who resided there many years. Mrs. Pringle lived in the Wilmore locality about 80 years, and is known to almost every one in that section.

Samuel Pringle, the woman's husband, died 21 years ago at the age of 86 years. Mrs. Pringle was the mother of six children, of whom the following survive: Mrs. Margaret Palmer, of Conemaugh; Mrs. G. W. Bickford, of Conemaugh, and Mrs. Samuel Hess, of near Wilmore. The children of Mr. and Mrs. William Gocher, of the Seventh Ward, this city, and of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Shaffer, of Conemaugh, are great great grandchildren of Mrs. Pringle.
