   The village was bowed in sorrow Friday when it was announced that Catharine, wife of James Kehoe, Sr., had passed away from this world of care to one of eternal bliss. The deceased had been of poor health all summer, suffering from dypspepsia. On Tuesday last she was suddenly taken worse and it is thought that the immediate cause of her death was neuralgia of the heart. She passed peacefully and quietly away at 2:20 Friday morning, surrounded by her family. Of Mrs. Kehoe it can be said that she lived the life of a true christian woman, being a devout member of the Roman Catholic church, always striving to do right, and good to others. She was an exemplary mother, and died respected and loved by all who knew her. She leaves a husband, two daughters, five sons and two brothers to mourn her demise. The sorrowing family have the heartfelt sympathy of the community. Mrs. Kehoe was 48 years of age and had been a resident of the place for nearly 30 years. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at the Catholic church and was one of the largest ever witnesses in this village, the church being crowded to the utmost. Rev. A. O'Connor conducted the funeral services. May she rest in peace.
