Mrs. Susanna Workman Skidmore, widow of the late Noah Skidmore, one time mayor of Frostburg, died at the county home at Cumberland on Monday morning, aged 89 years. Mrs. Skidmore was born in Dutch Hollow, near Mt. Savage, and had lived in Allegany county all her life. She was the mother of 13 children. She was a lady loved and respected by all who knew her. One of the things she found much pleasure in was in telling of her early life of struggles and hardships, while this section was hardly anything but a wilderness. The following children survive her: Messrs. Louis, Stillwater, James A., William A., and Elijah, all living at Borden Mines; John, of Pekin; Matthew, of Midlothian; Mrs. David Sloan, of Fairmont, W. Va., and Mrs. Aaron Ambrose, of Narrows Park. The body was brought to the home of her son, Mr. Wm. Skidmore, at Borden Mines, from which place the funeral will take place today.

Church, will officiate at the services, which will be conducted at the home of her son at Borden.” [CET, 11-2-1910, p. 11]
