   She and her husband farmed, starting on the Bowen and Shaefer farms.  Later they bought the Smith farm.  When they sold the property, due to her husband's failing health, they kept a small area of woods, where they built a home.  Mrs. Pritchard stayed there until failing health forced her to move into the Senior Citizens Apartments in Delphi.

   She enjoyed farm work and traveling.  She and her husband traveled in a motor home, mostly to Florida in the winter time.  She also was an Avon representative for 14 years.

   Mrs. Pritchard was a member of the Delphi Christian Church, VFW Auxiliary in Delphi, Ladies of the Moose in Englewood, Fla., Deer Creek Twp. and Madison Twp. Extension Homemakers Clubs, Carroll County Farm Bureau, and Indiana Sheriff's Association.

   Surviving are one son, Ronald E. Pritchard of Wasilla, Ark.; one brother, Bob Larimore of Lafayette; three sisters, Edith Isaacs and Barbara Nelson, both of Delphi, and Joanne Van Natta of Monticello; and two grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by one daughter, two brothers and four sisters.
