DIED.--At the residence of her parents in Grundy Center, Iowa, Saturday, Nov. 17, of consumption, Mrs. John Cea, in the 36th year of her age.

Miss Jennie Quinn was born in Denby, Rutland county, Vermont, in 1852, at which place she resided until 1857, when she moved with her parents to Walwouth county, Wisconsin, where she lived one year. In 1858 she moved again with her parents to Trempleau county, Wisconsin, where she resided 7 years, after which she moved to Carroll county, Illinois, where she lived up to the time of her marriage. In 1874 she was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Mr. John Cea, at Dixon, Illinois, and the following year moved with her husband to Alden, Hardin county, Iowa, where she resided until the spring of '78, when she moved with her husband to Grundy Center, where she lived up to the time of her death. About one year ago she was attacked by that dread disease, consumption, and the kind and devoted care of husband, relatives and friends, also change of climate, proved of no avail, and Saturday morning at one o'clock she passed peacefully away.

"Gone to a land of pure delight,
Where Saints immortal reign,
Infinite day excludes the night,
And pleasures banish pain."

By the death of Mrs. Cea a husband and four young children are called upon to mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate wife, a true and loving mother. Father, mother, four brothers and one sister survive her. She was at the time of her death, as she always has been, a true and devout Christian and was fully prepared to go before her maker, there to be bourne to a land where pain and sickness are not known. The funeral services were held at the Catholic church in this place, Monday morning at 10:30 o'clock, Rev. McInerney, of Vinton, officiating. The remains were borne to their last resting place in the Catholic burying grounds at Rose Hill cemetery. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved husband and relatives in their sad affliction.
