Watertown Daily Times (NY) – September 5, 2007
Marion Frances Horning Palmer, 87, formerly of outer Washington Street, town of Watertown, died Saturday at the Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House, Flagler Beach, Fla.

Born Feb. 14, 1920, in the hamlet of Dugway, daughter of Dana G. and Fanny M. Corey Horning, she moved with her family to Watertown Center in the fall of 1928 and attended Watertown schools, graduating in 1937 from Watertown High School and later from the Watertown School of Commerce.

She lived at Watertown Center until her marriage to Donald R. Palmer, also of Watertown, on March 22, 1943, at First Presbyterian Church. Following their marriage, the couple lived at Camp Campbell, Ky., where Sgt. Palmer was assigned to the 20th Armored Division Quartermaster Headquarters. He served in the European theater during World War II.

Mrs. Palmer also served during World War II, as a civil service secretary in the War Department. She worked at Pine Camp before her marriage and at Camp Campbell following it. She later worked at the Army AG & SF Redistribution Station at Lake Placid while her husband was overseas.

Returning to Watertown in 1946 following Mr. Palmer’s military discharge, the couple opened a gasoline and service station on Route 11 at Watertown Center. During this time, Mrs. Palmer also assisted her husband in his position as clerk of the town of Watertown, which he held from 1950 to 1957.

Their business, which became known as Palmer Motors, grew to include Lincoln-Mercury and Jeep franchises, a body shop and a service department. Mr. Palmer was president-dealer and Mrs. Palmer was treasurer-office manager until his death on Memorial Day 1979, at age 58.

Mrs. Palmer later used the front building as a thrift shop, The Clothesline, and would report that it was the most fun job she ever had.

A longtime member of the Watertown Center Home Bureau unit, she also was a founding member and first chairwoman of the Town of Watertown Historical Society and a member of the First United Methodist Church, where she taught Sunday school for 40 years. She also was a member of the United Methodist Women, serving as treasurer for eight years and as an officer in the District UMW. She was a volunteer for 11 years with Internal Revenue Service Counseling for the Elderly program.

A genealogy buff, she had researched several family lines, including the Corey, Porter, Horning and Pickens lines in her own family and the Palmer, Tidd and Sherman lines on her husband’s side.

Surviving are a son and his wife, Mark J. and Denise M. Gibbs Palmer, Flagler Beach; three daughters and two sons-in-law, Nancy Irene and James G. Elliott, Adams, Bonnie Diana Letson, Watertown, and Pamela Jean and Jeffrey D. Solan, Myrtle Beach, S.C.; a sister, Irene LaFave, Venice, Fla., nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

A memorial service for family members will be at a later date. Burial will be in the family plot at Maple Lawn Cemetery in the hamlet of Dugway, town of Albion.

Donations may be made to the First United Methodist Church, Mullin Street, Watertown, or the Town of Watertown Historical Society.
