One sister, Mrs E A Hickey, passed away five years ago.
Miss Meehan was loved by a large number of warm friends by whom her death will be felt as a keen loss, and her motto is said to have been "All friends and no enemies." She devoted her time to the care of her mother and did all in her power to make the lives of those around her happy and contented.
The funeral was held on Sunday morning at the Sacred Heart Catholic church and the remains laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at this place.
Those who attended the funeral from a distance were as follows: L Conway, of Preemption, Ill; George Caltey, Mr and Mrs Martin Hickey and son, Morris, of Adair; Mrs Thomas Dolan and Mrs Gordon, of Mealo; Mrs Mary Astrid, of Atlantic; Mrs John Meehan, of Council Bluffs; Mr and Mrs J Caltey of Neola; Miss Elizabeth and Thomas Meehan, of Denison; Mr and Mrs J Houlihan, Mr and Mrs E L Champion, Mr and Mrs John Kintry, of Vail; Thos Meehan and Mrs Costella, of Vail and Mrs Mary O'Brien and children of Ute.
