She was a widow and 77 years old at the time. Surviving her were, one son, Adelbert Peets of Malone; two daughters, Mrs. William (Mae) Boyle of Fort Covington and Miss Madeline Peets, at home; one adopted son, James C.

Research Notes

There is a conflict between her obituary on Find-A-Grave in regard to her place of birth that needs to be resolved.
