Ambrose Conway Died of Pneumonia Easter Sunday
Funeral Held At Estherville Today
Ambrose T. Conway, 46, of Estherville, passed away Easter Sunday at a hospital at Ottawa, Illinois. The cause of his death was pneumonia. For the past year and a half he had been employed in the ship yard at Senea, Illinois. When he became ill with pneumonia he was taken to the hospital at Ottawa.
The remains were brought to the family home at Estherville and the funeral was held Thursday morning from St. Patrick's Catholic church. The pastor, the Rev. J. J. Keane, officiated. Many old friends from this vicinity as well as from Estherville were in attendance.
Mr. Conway is survived by his wife and by four children. They are Clarence, of the Chicago University; and Ellen, Alice Theresa and Patricia, who are at home. Mr. Conway's death is also mourned by his mother, Mrs. L. E. Conway, of east Graettinger; by his brothers James, of Cylinder; John, of Dougherty, and Leo, of Graettinger; and by his sisters, Mrs. E. Drew, of Cylinder, Mrs. John Kliegl, of Graettinger, and Mrs. A. Conlon, Spencer.
Mr. Conway's death at such an early age in life is a sad loss to his devoted wife and family and to his mother and other relatives. As a young man he spent his boyhood years in the Graettinger vicinity and was a member of one of the highly esteemed families of this community. He was a splendid young man, worthy and upright, and a devout and sincere Christian gentleman.
The Times extends sincere sympathy to Mrs. Conway and the children, to the mother and to the brothers and sisters in their sorrow.
