Mrs. Mary Ellen Byam, aged 72, died early Tuesday morning [November 8, 1932] after a few hours’ illness, at her home on Mont Vernon Street. She seemed in good health Monday and was about the house all day. In the night she was suddenly stricken with illness and passed away two hours afterwards.

Mrs. Byam was a very industrious woman and had been a resident of Milford 35 years, coming here with her husband, the late Warren S. Byam, from Greenfield. Mrs. Byam was a native of Carlisle, Mass., born July 2, 1859, and the daughter of Henry and Jane (Green) Heald of that place. Since her husband’s death in 1911, the widow has made her home with her children on Mont Vernon Street.

The deceased was a member of the Episcopal Church. She leaves six children, Miss Nettie Byam, a teacher, Miss Susie E. Byam, a bookkeeper in Merrimack, Warren Byam and Walter Byam of Milford, Mrs. Martha Frost of Amherst and Mrs. Gertrude Magoon of Greenfield. Three sisters and three brothers also survive, Mrs. Henrietta Kemp of Tewksbury, Mass., Mrs. Frances Green of North Woburn, Mass., Mrs. Charles Robinson of Danvers, Mass., George and Frank Heald of Carlisle, Mass., and William Heald of Lowell.

Funeral service will be held this afternoon at the home on Mont Vernon Street, with burial at Riverside Cemetery.
