Mrs. Minnie Gann, one of the most extensively known and beloved women of Brunswick passed away at her home 405 G Street, at 11 o'clock yesterday morning.

Mrs. Gann had been in ill health for several years, having suffered a stroke of paralysis about five years ago, form which she never entirely recovered. Recently Mrs. Gann began to fail rapidly until the end came yesterday and although not unexpected, her death occasioned the deepest sorrow among her host of friends.

Born in Brunswick in 1846, only daughter of Jacob and Mary Scott Moore, Mrs. Gann, as Miss Minnie Moore, was one of the most popular young women of this section. About forty years ago, while on a visit to Atlanta, Miss Moore was married to Dr. H.N. Gann, of that city, the couple moving within a short time to Brunswick.

Left to mourn her death Mrs. Gann leaves two sons, Norris, of Waycross, and Robert of this city.

The funeral services will beheld this morning at 10:30 o'clock from the residence, Rev. O.P. Gilbert of the First Baptist church officiating. The interment will take place in Oak Grove cemetery.
