Jon Saunders - Apr 25, 2007 View | Viewers Categories: The Sabbath Recorder Obituary 'The Sabbath Recorder', Vol 147, No 18, p 315, Nov. 14, 1949. Harriet Carpenter, widow of Rev. Theodore J. VanHorn, and daughter of George B. and Mary Covey Carpenter, was born in Ashaway, R. I., September 24, 1865, and died in Orlando, Fla., October 6, 1949. Before her marriage she was active in her home church and in larger units of the Y.P.S.C.E. in Rhode Island. Since her marriage, July 19, 1898, and until the death of her husband in 1946, she was a faithful and efficient helpmeet, in both parsonage and parish, in three places in central New York and in one each in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Arkansas, and New Jersey. After Mr. VanHorn's retirement in 1936, they moved to Daytona Beach where they were active in the work of the Church and Sabbath school as long as health permitted. While \\ in Wisconsin she was a member of the Seventh Day Baptist Woman's Board, and an outstanding piece of her work for the denomination from 1914 to 1920 was the editorship of the Junior Quarterly for Sabbath schools. She also wrote several valuable poems and tracts. Survivors include her only child, Mrs. Amey Hoag of Melbourne, Fla., who has had the care of her mother during the last two years of failing health; and two grandchildren; also two sisters, Mrs. Curtis F. Randolph and Miss Marion Carpenter, both of Alfred, N. Y. The funeral service, in charge of Pastor Jay W. Crofoot, was held in the Daytona Beach Seventh Day Baptist Church on October 8, and burial was beside her husband in Cedar Hill Cemetery in that city. J. W. C.
