HONORED PHYSICIAN CLAIMED BY DEATH.
Dr. John M Criley Succumbs to Cancer Of the Stomach While Visiting at Former Home in Ohio.
(From Tuesday's daily)
The sad and unexpected news of the death of Dr. John M. Criley was received in Prescott yesterday, as occurring on Sunday, at Fosters [sic Foster], Ohio, from cancer of the stomach. Dr. Criley left this city in May to visit with relatives and friends at his old home, and with a premonition that his earthly career was closing, made a special object while in the above state to mingle with all relatives before the malady with which he was afflicted triumphed. The passing away of this popular physician and well known citizen, will be a source of regret to many friends and acquaintances. He was kind and gentle in demeanor, of agreeable fellowship, and with all an exemplary citizen. During his thirteen years of a residence, his ability was recognized in a professional capacity as of the highest, and one of his splendid personal traits was his generous disposition.
Dr. Criley was born in Galion, Ohio, on January 1, 1844. During the civil war he served with the 44th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and the 8th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry. While in service he was wounded in the chest, from which he never fully recovered, cancer of the stomach developing. He was graduated from the Hahnemann Medical College and Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, and practiced his profession for many years in Kansas, Florida and Arizona. He will be buried by the side of his wife at Mansfield, Ohio. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. P. J. Carmichael of Springfield, Ohio, three brothers, Rev. W. M. Criley, of Indianapolis, Ind., A. H. Criley, of Lindon [sic Lyndon], Kansas, and E. K. Criley, of Kansas City, Mo. His two daughters reside in this city [Prescott, Az.]. Mrs. M. B. Hazeltine, wife of the cashier of the Bank of Arizona, and Mrs. C. E. Yount, wife of Dr. Yount.
Dr. Criley was so highly regarded in charitable circles, that he was elected president of the Associated Charities of this city a short time ago. He was also a consistent supporter of his Christian beliefs, and was a deacon of the Congregational Church of this city.
