SECOND CASEAREAN OPERATION 
IS FATAL TO YOUNG MOTHER
Mrs. Charles Fitzpatrick dies Tuesday Evening.
      One of the most unusual occurrences known 
to medical science, a second Caesarean operation 
proved fatal to Mrs. Charles R. Fitzpatrick, well 
known young woman of Pleasant township, who 
died Tuesday night at 9:18 o'clock at the St. 
Vincent's hospital in Indianapolis. Mrs. Fitzpatrick's 
condition had been regarded as very favorable up 
to 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, when a change for 
the worse was noted by her nurse and she grew 
worse rapidly until death.
      Mrs. Fitzpatrick was taken to the St. Vincent's 
hospital on Tuesday, November 3rd.  On Wednesday, 
the operation was performed and the child, a fine boy, 
who was given the name Donald Wayne, was saved and 
said by the nurses and physicians to be an unusually 
fine specimen of babyhood. 
      When Mrs. Fitzpatrick's first child was born in 1921, 
a Caesarean operation was necessary to save mother and 
child.  This child, a little girl, Wilma Lou, is living and 
the young mother is survived by her husband and these 
two little children. 
      Funeral services will be held from the Community 
church, of which the deceased was a member, Friday 
morning, at 10 o'clock, and the burial will follow in 
Greenlawn cemetery, Franklin.  The services will be
 conducted by the Rev. Gray, pastor of the church.
                 26 years of Age
      Mrs. Fitzpatrick was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
John Coy, and was born in Bartholomew County on 
February 8th, 1899.  Early in life she moved with her 
parents to Johnson County and had lived in this county 
continuously until her death.  Her father is a county 
commissioner-elect of Johnson county and the family 
is well known here.  Mrs. Fitzpatrick's mother is a 
daughter of Mr. John E. Walters, the Walters family 
being one of the largest family in the county. 
      On August 23, 1916, she was united in marriage 
to Charles R. Fitzpatrick, a son of Mr. and Mrs. S. E. 
Fitzpatrick, and their married life had been spent in 
Clark and Pleasant townships where Mr. Fitzpatrick 
is a leading young farmer.
