Mrs. Cleveland passes aaway today at home here

Mrs. Mathilda Cleveland, 1822 Madison St, whose one ambition was to live to be 100 years old, died today at her home at the age of 98.

On Nov. 10, when Mrs. Cleveland was celebrating her 98th birthday, even though infirmities at that time kept her bedridden, the aged woman told friends that she still clung to her hopes to reach the century mark.
