Death of Miss Meehan
Miss Cecelia Katharyn Meehan died at the home of her parents, Mr and Mrs John Meehan, in this city, last Friday, July 1st, after two weeks' serious illness from hemorrhages of the lungs which followed an attack of pneumonia two years ago which almost took her life at that time.
The funeral was held on Sunday at 10:30 o'clock, Rev Father Farrelly officiating, and the interment was made in the Catholic cemetery near the city.
Miss Meehan was born in Hanover township in this county April 28, 1885, and spent all her life here, where she was known as a bright and lovable and helpful young lady. She was for several years a valued school teacher in this county, and among all her relatives and friends was a favorite. Two years ago she had an attack of pneumonia which kept her between life and death for several months, but from which she finally recovered enough to enjoy life again, though she never became strong afterwards. Her death now comes as a relief from earthly sufferings, and while she is gone the memory of her bright and cheerful life is a consolation and an inspiration to the loved ones she has left behind.
She leaves her parents, and three brothers and five sistersliving, all of whom have the deepest sympathy of a large circle of friends in the sad loss they have sustained.
