The remains of Miss Annie L. Evans, who died in so sad a manner at the Woman's Hospital in Chicago on Thursday morning of last week, were brought home by her father Frank on Friday evening, and on Saturday afternoon were deposited in their last resting place in the city cemetery. The funeral took place at 2:30 from the home of the deceased on Main street. Rev. J. V. Hughes, of the Presbyterian Church, preached the funeral sermon, and a large concourse of neighbors and friends gathered to pay their last respects to the remains of the deceased. The floral offerings were very fine, and the procession which followed the remains to the grave was a very large one. The pall-bearers were Messrs. L. D. Roberts, F. E. Mielke, G. C, Dickinson, D. Gorham, Jr., O. O. Wiegand and Chas. Brockman, Miss Evans was the eldest daughter of John and Lydia Evans. She was born in the state of New York April 28th, 1849, and came to this city with her parents in the fall of 1873. Soon after her arrival here she engaged in the millinery business and followed the same during all the years of her residence here, winning a success by her good management which is not often the lot of her sex. Deceased was a most exemplary woman in all the walks of life. She had a large circle of friends and acquaintances, and was honored and respected by all who knew her. Her sudden and an expected death, away from home and friends, was a great shock to all, and caused the profoundest regret in the community.
