EARTHLY CAREER AT AN END
Mrs John Meehan, Mother of Thirteen Children, Passes Away at Her Home in Denison.
BORN IN IRELAND IN YEARS 1819
Married to John Meehan at Milo, Ill, Jan 18, 1864, and Live Near Vail for Many Years.

Monday morning, November 30th, occurred the death of Mrs John Meehan, mother of Dr J J Meehan, at her home on South Dyer street, old age and complications being the cause of her death. She had been a sufferer for many months, and death came as a relief to a very estimable lady.
Mrs Meehan was born and christen Catherine Garvey. She was born January 12, 1839, in County Clare, Ireland. While yet a young girl she came to the United States, stopping at Davenport. Later her parents came to this country and also settled at Davenport. Jan 18, 1864, she was married at Milo, Ill, to Mr John Meehan, and together they made their home at Milo until the year 1878, when they moved to near Vail, where they resided until five or six years ago, when Mr Meehan retired from the farm and the family moved to Denison, purchasing the home on South Dyer street. Mr Meehan preceded his wife to the grave some two years ago. Mrs Meehan was the mother of thirteen children, three, however, dying in infancy, and Bridget dying five years ago and Dymple about a year later. The surviving children are: Thomas, of near Vail; Mrs M W Conway, of Reynolds, Ill; Mrs John Houlihan and Mrs Ed Champion, of Denison; Dr J J , Elizabeth, John and Pearl, also of Denison, Besides these, five sisters and one brother are left. Three sisters reside in Davenport, one in Denver, and one is in a convent at Dubuque. The brother lives in Des Moines.
The funeral services were held at the Catholic church this morning at 10 o'clock, and burial will take place in the Catholic Cemetery. It is expected that many of the relatives will be present at the funeral.
Mrs Meehan was a most loyal woman, both to her family and to her church. She bore her suffering with much fortitude and had gone to her reward after a life well spent.
