Mrs. Catherine Hannaford Chase died this noon at her home, 321 N. Third Street. She has been in very poor health for the last year and her life has been in the balance for many days. A complication resulting from asthma and bronchial troubles was the cause of death.

Mrs. Chase has for nearly half a century been a resident of Winnebago County. when their active days were over Mr. and Mrs. Chased moved into town from the farm which had been their home since 1859. That was fourteen years ago and their life's labor has been crowned by many quiet and peaceful years.

Catherine F. Hannaford was born May, 1834 at Solon, Ohio, and there married Henry B. chase in October, 1857. With one child, Charles A. who died six years ago, the young pair came west to take up their residence in Winnebago County in the second year of their married life. The last six years, since the death of the first son and his wife who passed away the same year, their home has been brightened by the presence of two grandchildren, Dell, a young lady of 20 years, and Henry, a boy of 10 years.

Mrs. Chase was a member of the First Congregational Church and desired that her funeral sermon be preached by the pastor.

She leaves several sons and a daughter who have been notified of the death. They are: Ira R. and Frank H. Chase of Chicago; Arthur T. Chase of New Milford; H. Chase of Colorado Springs, Col.; and Mrs. Stella K. Roscrance of Monroe Center. Mrs. George A. Chase of Rockford is the widow of another son.
