Elah Starcher Whisman, one of Calhoun's pedestal people, has died at age 94.

The longtime resident of Hur was the last surviving saint of the Mt. Olive United Methodist Church, which has also faded into history.

Elah had been able to maintain her household, with help, until her death. She died in a Parkersburg hospital Friday morning after a short illness.

Funeral services are 2 p.m. Sunday at the Mt. Zion UM Church with burial in the church cemetery. Friends may call at the Stump Funeral Home in Grantsville from 6-8 p.m. Saturday.
