PECHANEC, MRS. ALBERT [abt. 1860 - Apr 5, 1910]
Another unfortunate has gone to an untimely death. Yesterday between the hours of 11 o'clock a.m. and 1 o'clock, Mrs. Albert Pechanec, a woman about 50 years of age committed suicide by hanging. Earlier in the day the deceased had intended visiting a niece at Howells, but shortly before the arrival of the morning passenger, and, after she had purchased a ticket to that place, she changed her mind and she and her husband returned home. According to the story told by her husband, she sent him downtown on an errand and upon his return, something like an hour and a half later, he found the house locked, and, gaining an entrance through a window, discovered his wife hanging from a rafter in the upper story of the residence. Neighbors were called and remains cut down. The couple had not lived happily for some years and quarrels were frequent and violent. They had separated for some time prior to a few weeks ago, but had patched up their differences and were living together again. There are no children in the family. Clarkson Herald.
