SHIREY, KATHRYN (FOX) — Kathryn Fox Shirey -- After 66 years of life with all its joys and its sorrows, its victories and defeats, Mrs. Kathryn Shirey arrived at the time when she laid down her life last Tuesday morning, Aug. 24, 1926, and her spirit at peace with man and God, returned to the realms of Glory which "eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." The announcement of her death was shocking in its effect on the community. A few days prior to her death, Mrs. Shirey was taken violently ill, the cause being gallstones. She was taken to the Brookville Hospital. Her case was given very special attention but in spite of the best medical skill and careful nursing she was unable to survive. Kathryn Fox was born May 16, 1860, in Monroe Township, Clarion County. At this place she grew to mature womanhood and on February 6, 1881, was united in marriage to Lafayette Shirey, also of Monroe township. To their happy union three sons were born, Clyde, of Chicago; John, of near Pittsburgh; and Carl, who lives at the old home; and two daughters, Sarah Elsie and Estella Pearle, who died in infancy. Both mother and daughters are now reunited in the land of eternal joy. Besides a host of friends Mrs. Shirey is survived by her husband, three sons, five grandchildren and the following brothers and sisters: Elias, Amos, and Alphens Fox, all of Monroe Twp., Harrison Fox, of Jefferson Co., and Mrs. Dillie Bashline, also of Monroe Twp. Four brothers and three sisters preceded her in death. Mrs. Shirey was a life long member of the Licking Presbyterian Church. Her funeral services were conducted by her former pastor, Rev. McCurdy, in her late home. Rev. McCurdy in his usual kind and sympathetic manner spoke very beautifully of the Christian life and character of Mrs. Shirey, whose friendship he had enjoyed for several years. He spoke of her life as a neighbor and of the cordiality she possessed in her home. Interment was made in the Licking Presbyterian Cemetery. The sympathy of the community is extended to the sorrowing husband and children in their bereavement. Source: Clarion Democrat 9/2/1926
