Fannie Lynch

Death of Fanny Lynch.
Our old friend, M. J. O'Brien, of Kouts, sends us a clipping from the Titusville (Pa.) Times, containing the obituary notice of Fannie Lynch. She was the daughter of Timothy Lynch, an old settler of Chesterton 25 years ago. Mr. Lynch was a cooper and worked for D. M. Hopkins in the times of '58 to 64. He is now an alderman in the city of Titusville.

"The funeral of Miss Fannie Lynch took place from the family residence on Short street at 9 o'clock yesterday morning. The remains lay in a broadcloth covered and silver-mounted casket, almost covered with flowers. Among these delicate offerings of affection were several beautiful designs, the most noticable which were a pillow of white roses, with "Fannie" worked in heliotropes in the center, presented by Erastus Patterson; a broken column, from young lady friends; a harp, the token of Messrs. Clarence Henderson and Chas. Porter, and an anchor, also the gift of gentlemen friends. The features of the dead were as natural and beautiful as in life.

The casket was conveyed to the hearse by the following pallbearers: Lou Olmstead, Clarence Henderson, John Leo, Chas. Potter, Patrick Quinn and James Dunn.

From the house the remains were taken to St. Titus's Church, where a solemn requiem mass was celebrated and an eloquent and touching sermon delivered by Father Coady.

The Rev. Father spoke very highly of the deceased's virtues, but said all the good that he could say about her was already known and he could add nothing to it.

The cortege that followed the remains to the grave was large. It included Fr. Coady, who concluded the ceremonies at the tomb. During life the deceased was an universal favorite, and her loss sends a pang of sorrow in all ranks of society. The parents have the sincere sympathy of every one in their bereavement.
