OverlijdensberichtFuneral services were held on Thursday, July 26, at the Deford Methodist church for Mrs. May Van Blaricom, who passed away on Tuesday, July 24, after 13 months' illness and suffering from an abdominal cancer.
Julia May McCracken was born in the village of Troy Corners, Troy township, Oakland county, Michigan, NOV. 15, 1880, the daughter of John and Julia McCracken. She came with her parents to Kingston township, Tuscola county, shortly after the forest fire of 1881; residing with her parents until Jan. 14, 1897, when she was united in marriage with Arthur W. Van Blaricom, also of Kingston township. They made their home on a farm in Kingston township until 1929 when they moved to Pontiac to become employees of the Michigan State hospital as housekeepers in charge of the employees' dormitory, in which capacity they continued until June, 1944, when Mrs. Van Blaricom was stricken with illness requiring an operation, causing her retirement. She returned to her home in Deford in August, 1944, after the death of her husband, who passed away following a gall bladder operation which had become necessary while she was also in the hospital under treatment. She made her home in Deford from August, 1944, until her death where she was visited by many relatives and a host of friends whom she always greeted cheerfully regardless of her pain and suffering. Many floral tokens were received and deeply appreciated by her during her illness. Her last hours were brightened by the presence of her son-in-law, Maurice E. Kelley, C. M. 2/c, who had been stationed in the South Pacific for the past two years, and who arrived on a 30-day leave in time to cheer her. His return was hastened by the Red Cross for which she was expressly thankful.
She is survived by a son, Foster J. Van Blaricom of Highland Park, Mich.; two daughters, Mrs. Maurice Kelley of Flint and Edna M. Sadler of Deford; five grandchildren, Clinton Perry Sadler, Richard V. Sadler, Keith A. Sadler, Mona May and Donna Fay Sadler. She is also survived by two brothers, David McCracken of Detroit and Frank McCracken of Highland Park; two sisters, Mrs. Leonard Patch of Highland Park and Mrs. Claude Cameron of Prescott, Arizona; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, a brother and a sister, and two children, Reid A. and Beulah M., both of whom died in infancy; and a granddaughter, Doris Jean Kelley, who also died in infancy.
Interment was made in the family plot in Novesta cemetery beside her husband and infant children. Services were conducted by Rev. H. C. Freeman, pastor of Deford church, where Mr. and Mrs. Van Blaricom had been members for several years. Nephews of the deceased acted as pallbearers and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Kelley sang two selections.
