Miss Bridget Sweeney Passes Away on Tuesday Morning at 8 o'clock
Death, the grim agent of destruction, has entered the home of a respected citizen of Crystal Falls and fastened its icy clutch upon one of its beloved occupants. On Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock, Miss Bridget Sweeney, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Sweeney passed away. The young lady had been ill since the removal of the family to Crystal Falls, nearly three years ago. Lagrippe attacked her, and from its effects she never recovered, the malady at last developing into consumption. She was a patient sufferer and not until Saturday, preceding her death, did she remain in her room, leaving her bed only twenty minutes before death ended her sufferings. While illness prevented the young lady from enjoying wide social intercourse in Crystal Falls, she had many warm friends. Blessed with an admirable disposition, none knew her but to esteem her. She died at the age of twenty-two years and six months.
The funeral occurred on Thursday morning from the church of the Guardian Angel. The public schools were closed out of respect for the young lady and the funeral cortege was one of the longest ever seen in Crystal Falls. All the sympathy words can convey in the hour of sad affliction, The Diamond Drill tenders to Mr. Sweeney and his bereaved family and in doing so voices the relevant sentiment of this people.
The Diamond Drill, February 17, 1894.
