Miss Annie Maginn
After Long Suffering She Passed Away Late Sunday Evening
Miss Annie Maginn died at her home at the corner of Gear and High streets Sunday evening at half past ten o'clock. Her death was caused by tuberculosis, with which she had long and patiently suffered. She was the third daughter of Mrs. Patrick Maginn and had an extensive acquaintance and many devoted friends who deplore her early demise.
The deceased was the third of six sisters, the others being Missed Katie and Mary, living at home, Mrs. Theodore C. Runzler, of Ottumwa, Ia., Miss Lou Maginn, who is engaged as a stenographer in Dubuque, and Miss Maggie Maginn, a teacher in the Galena public schools. With her eldest sisters she followed the art of dressmaking with much success, while socially her pleasant disposition surrounded her with friends. She was a consistent member of the Catholic church.
The funeral will probably be held Wednesday. The hour will be announced in to-morrow's paper.
