Anthony died at the age of 86 at her home in Rochester, NY. Several years earlier, she suffered a stroke. Towards the end of her life, she also experienced painful neuralgia. Though pain and weakness curtailed her activities, she rallied to attend events in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., sponsored by the National Woman Suffrage Association. There, she caught a cold that led to pneumonia. This, along with heart failure, ended her life on March 13, 1906.
