Obit from Antioch Newspaper, 8 Feb 1912:
IN MEMORY OF MRS. G. E. GAIL
Catherine Amelia Sheehan was born near Millburn, Ill., July 5, 1859, and died in Waukegan, Ill., Jan. 15, 1912, of typhoid fever. She was the eldest daughter of Daniel and Betsy Sheehan, one of a family of seven children, growing to womanhood in the community in which she was born.
She was married to Goodsel T. Gail, April 8, 1877, three children being born to them, two daughters and one son. One daughter died Aug. 19, 1901.
Those left to mourn her loss are her husband, son Lockwood, and daughter, Mrs. Jay Kay, and three grand children, and aged mother, two brothers and two sisters, William and Eugene Sheehan, and Mrs. Roy Fairman of Lake Villa, and Mrs. F. A. Hutchinson of Grays Lake.
She was a loving wife and devoted mother. Of her can be truly said that no service was too great to render and no sacrifice to great to make for those she loved, and hosts of friends will ever cherish the memory of her who was ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in distress.
The funeral was held Thursday morning at nine o'clock from the church of the Immaculate Conception and burial at Mill Creek beside her daughter. A firm believer in the Catholic religion, she took her faith with her into eternity. May her soul rest in peace.
