MRS. J. B. MESCHER DIED AT
MIDNIGHT AFTER A SHORT
ILLNESS.
___

Mrs. Elizabeth Mescher, widow of the late J. B. Mescher, passed away Tuesday morning at 1:15 o'clock at the home of her son, Henry Mescher, of 1511 Oak street. Death resulted from a cerebral hemorrhage which she suffered three days ago. Paralysis of the brain resulted and she failed steadily until death ended her suffering this morning.

Mrs. Mescher was born in Oldenburg, Germany, January 9, 1827, and was therefore 85 years, 5 months and 2 days of age at the time of her death. She had resided in Quincy for fifty-five years. Both she and her late husband were widely known and enjoyed the highest regard of a large circle of acquaintances. She was a devout Catholic and a consistent member of St. Francis Catholic church. She was also a member of both the St. Boniface and St. Francis Ladies' societies.

She is survived by three sons, Henry, at whose home she died; John B., of St. Louis, and Joseph, of this city, sixteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
