MRS. JOHN CAHILL PASSES AWAY
Aged Lady Dies at her Home Near Janesville on Monday Night the Seventh After an Illness Extending Over a Year.
FUNERAL WAS HELD ON THURSDAY
Mrs. John Cahill whose death was briefly noted in these columns last week passed away at her home near this place at twelve o'clock on Monday, July 7th.
About a year ago, Mrs. Cahill was taken ill and since that time she continued to fail gradually although the skill of eminent physicians was resorted to in the treatment of the case. A trip to Rochester developed a fatal diagnosis – cancer of the liver. Every possible effort was utilized to render her decline as free from pain and as comfortable as possible.
Mrs. Cahill was born in Dixon County, Illinois, sixty seven years ago. When a small child she went with her parents to Canada and from thence to Faribault in this state. Subsequently they removed to this county where most of her life was spent. Here she was married in an early day and here she reared her children to manhood and womanhood.
She was a devoted Christian woman whose ever abiding faith was a notable characteristic of her life. She was highly respected by all her acquaintances and loved and revered by all her associates and family.
She leaves to mourn her loss five sons and four daughters, Thomas, of Sisseton, S. D., Walter, James, John and William, of this place and Mrs. J. C. McGannon, of Ellendale, N. D., Mrs. James Norton, of St. Mary, Mrs. Thos. Eustis, of Janesville Township and Miss Katherine of this place.
The funeral was held Thursday morning at St. Ann's Catholic Church in this place, Rev. Father P. J. Fox, officiating and the remains interred in the Catholic cemetery.
A good woman is gone. Her memory will ever be cherished.
