MOST ESTIMABLE WOMAN DEAD
Mrs Edward Champion Passes Away on Saturday Morning After Long Illness Beginning Last Summer
FUNERAL HELD ON MONDAY
Funeral Services Very Largely Attended by Many Sorrowing Relatives and Friends.

Mrs Edward L Champion passed away on Saturday morning, January 18th, at the Meehan hospital in this city after an illness of several months duration. Early last summer Mrs Champion's health began to fail and from the beginning it was apparent that there was no hope for her ultimate recovery. Last fall in company with her brother, Dr J J Meehan, and sister, Miss Elizabeth Meehan, she went to Chicago to consult a specialist and intended to submit to an operation. Her case, however, was of such a nature that it was decided best not to operate and she returned to Denison. Since that time she has been at the Meehan hospital where she received the constant care of her brother and sisters who did every thing possible to relieve her suffering.
Mollie Meehan was the daughter of Mr and Mrs John Meehan and was born April 6, 1881, in Hayes township, Crawford county. In 1885 she moved with her parents to Denison, where she has made her home contentiously. On the 3d day of October, 1906, she was united in marriage to Edward L Champion. Three children were born to this union, one of whom died in infancy, the two surviving being Emmett, age 11, and Joseph, age 21 months. Besides her devoted husband and two sons she leaves to mourn her untimely death four sisters and three brothers, namely: Mrs M W Conway, Aledo, Ill; Mrs J A Houlihan, Denison, and Elizabeth and Pearl of Denison; Thomas Meehan of Vail; J M Meehan, of Davenport and Dr J J Meehan, of Denison.
Mrs Champion was a most estimable woman and her death has caused a profound sorrow among a large circle of friends and acquaintances in this locality. She was a young woman of pleasant and kindly nature, one who made friends easily and retained them. Mrs Champion was a most devoted wife and mother and she will be sadly missed in the home by her husband and the two children thus bereft of a mother's loving care.
Funeral services were held Monday morning at 10 o'clock at the St Rose of Lima church, Rev Father Farrelly celebrant, Father Murphy, deacon, and Father Harly subdeacon, holding solemn high mass. The services were largely attended; many people being here from a distance as well as from nearby towns. Among those present from a distance were Nona O'Brian, Davenport; George Talty and Mrs Martin Hickey, Adair; Thos Talty and Miss May Antrim, Atlantic; Mr and Mrs Michael Talty and John Talty, of Neola. All of the brothers and sisters were in attendance at the funeral. After the services at the church interment was made in the St Rose of Lima cemetery.
The Review joins with the many friends in extending heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved father and children in this their hour of deep sorrow.
