Anna Chew

MOTHER OF JOURNAL CIRCULATION HEAD SUCCUMBS AT XENIA
Mrs. Anna V. Chew, 82, Was Member of Prominent Lebanon Family.

Death Sunday claimed Mrs. Anna V. Chew, of Xenia, native of Lebanon and descendant of one of Warren County’s leading families.
Mrs. Chew died at 10:15 A.M. at her home on East Market Street, Xenia, following a brief illness. The previous Sunday she had seemed in customary good health and spirits and had spent a pleasant day with her family, falling ill last Tuesday. She was 82 years old.
Mrs. Chew was a member of a widely-known and respected Lebanon family and married into a family of equal prominence when the romance of Anna McBurney and the late W. B. Chew at Lebanon Normal School resulted in their union. Anna McBurney, daughter of A. G. McBurney, one time war governor of Ohio, met W. B. Chew who was taking a post-graduate course at the Lebanon university.
He and his father, J. P. Chew, both printers by trade, purchased the newspaper which became the Xenia Gazette under their management 54 years ago. When they assumed management it was a tri-weekly publication. Later they published semi-weekly and more than 50 years ago pioneered in making it a daily newspaper. The third generation of the family now published the Gazette.
To their union were born four sons, L. F. chew, of Washington, D.C., J. A. Chew, publisher of the Xenia Gazette; F. W. Chew, circulation manager of the Middletown Journal, and Harry, who died in infancy.
Besides the three sons, Mrs. Chew leaves a sister, Mrs. Coryell, who lives at the McBurney homestead in Lebanon, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
The funeral will be held Tuesday at 2 P.M. at the residence. Burial will be in the family plot in the Lebanon Cemetery.
