Elkader Argus, Thur., 17 Jan. 1901.

Mrs. John Farrell died at her home in Boardman township on Monday after a brief illness. Mrs. Farrell was a native of Ireland, coming to America at an early day, she has long been a resident of Clayton county. In her death a good woman and mother has been removed to the better land. Her husband and a family of grown children survive to mourn her loss and cherish her memory.

Funeral services were held yesterday at St. Joseph's Catholic church, Rev. J. F. Reilly officiating, after which the remains were taken to Garnavillo for interment.

Note: she is named & her DOD of 1/14/1901 given in the 1927 obituary of her husband John


Added by S. Ferrall 9/5/2018:

Census records name her as Bridget & the 1900 U.S. census, Boardman twp. gives birth as Dec. 1844. The "delayed birth certificate" of her daughter Estelle & the Iowa Death Certificate of her son Thomas, both give her maiden name as Duggan. These records and other supporting documents can be viewed on ancestry.com and possibly at familysearch.org

Bridget may not have a gravestone - one for either her or her husband have not been located to date.
