Large Gathering of Relatives And Friends Attend Rites for Mrs. Cain. Elkhart Lake –
The funeral of Mrs. William Cain, Tuesday at 10 a.m., from St. Ann's church was attended by one of the biggest gatherings of relatives and friends known in this section of the county. The services were conducted by the Rev. J.H. Schmitt and in his funeral sermon he paid a glowing tribute to the deceased to whom he referred as being a good Christian mother, a devout Catholic and a leader in the community.
Mrs. Cain, for many years prior to her death, was president of the Christian Mothers
society, which organization marched in a body and escorted their former leader to the grave.
News of Mrs. Cain's death, which occurred last Saturday night in the Plymouth hospital and which was received here Sunday morning, was a shock and brought grief to the residents of this community. On Tuesday, November 8, Mrs.
Cain underwent a surgical operation at the Plymouth hospital and there was every
hope that she would recover, but on Saturday there came a change for the worse.
