THORNTON

Chippewa Falls, June 29 - Mrs. Richard Thornton died at her home on Columbia Street at 2 o'clock Wednesday morning after a long illness. She was 76 years old.

Mrs. Thornton was born in the County Tipperary, Ireland, within sight of the famous Ricky Castle and came to New York City where she was married to Mr. Thornton. They moved to Chippewa Falls just forty-five years ago yesterday. Mrs. Thornton was a good Christian woman, charitable, and ever ready to help the needy. Her death will be universally regretted.

Her sons and daughters are John J., Phillip, Dennis, Michael, Peter and Katie Thornton.

The funeral will not be announced until Dennis, who is in Idaho, is heard from.
