Mrs. Susan J. Odell, aged 89 years, a well known resident of the city, died Thursday morning at 8 o’clock, as the result of less than two weeks’ illness of bronchial pneumonia, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Chidester, 661 West Pike Street. The only immediate relative present with her when she died was her granddaughter, Miss Jessie M. Odell, of New Richmond, O.
Mrs. Odell was a daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Rector, both deceased of Rectortown, Va., and belonged to one of the oldest families in Virginia. She was born September 27, 1821 and when a young woman was married to Joseph W. Odell, the couple coming to this city to reside. Her husband was a grocer and furniture dealer, being engaged in the business during the Civil War and later engaging only in the furniture business. He died seven or eight years ago.
Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Odell, as follows: Orin H., wholesale dealer residing in Kansas City; Milton, traveling salesman, residing in New Richmond, O.; Daniel, who died 30 years ago; William, whereabouts unknown; and Clarence Rector, who took charge of his father’s business after his death and died January 25, 1910, of paralysis.
There are eight grandchildren: Earl, son of Orin, living in California; Lovell Odell, living at Lumberport, who has two children; and Mrs. Beulah Whitman, of Wallace, children of William Odell; and the five children of Milton Odell, Jessie, Mrs. Nellie V. Parker, of Moscow, O., Ray Aubrey, and Daniel. Besides the children of Lovell Odell, Mrs. Odell had one other grandchild, the little son of Mr. and Mrs. Parker.
Mrs. Odell had three brothers and three sisters, of which the only one living is Mrs. Mary Shroyer, residing in California. Her daughter, Mrs. Sallie Glenn, of Newark, O., returned home last evening. Another sister, Mrs. Martha Loar, died, by coincidence, exactly one year before Mrs. Odell’s death at Tunnelton.
Other relatives are her nieces, Mrs. Elizabeth Waldeck and Miss Gertrude Rector, of this city; late wife of John T. Griffin; and Mrs. Rebecca Alexander, of Washington, D. C.
Mrs. Odell resided in her property at 667 West Pike street until after the death of her son, C. R. Odell, and last April went to New Richmond, O. Five weeks ago she returned to the city on a visit.
