Patrick Connell Passes Away
Death Came to His Relief at Noon on Wednesday
Patrick Connell, aged 80 years, passed away at about the noon hour on Wednesday of this week at the home of his brother, James Connell, in this city.
Death was not wholly unexpected as Mr. Connell had been in failing health for the past two years, and within the past few days his condition became quite critical.
About two years ago he was injured when a barn door fell upon him, and from that time until his death he has been anything but a well man.
Funeral services will be held from Sacred Heart church in this city on Friday, Dec. 18th, at 10 o'clock a.m.
