HANNAH WELCH DIES IN McALISTER HOSPITAL WAUKEGAN
Miss Hannah Welch, aged 80 years, a resident of Lake county, for
many years, passed away in the Jane McAlister hospital Tuesday
morning as the indirect result of a fall down a flight of steps a
few months ago which resulted in a broken leg.
Miss Welch was taken to the hospital immediately but because of
her age and the shock she sustained at the time of the injury the
broken bone did not knit for some time. The knitting together of
the bone was followed immediately by a complication of diseases
which caused her death.
Miss Welch leaves one brother, John of Libertyville, and a sister,
Mrs. A. F. Clough of Vermont. The former was at her bedside at
the time of her death and the latter has been notified and is
speeding toward Waukegan.
For years Miss Welch lived with a brother at Millburn and later
moved to Antioch where she resided up to the time of her brother's
death, and later she moved to Waukegan to live with her cousin,
James Welch and family.
It is planned to have the funeral on Thursday afternoon in the
White & Tobin undertaking rooms. The burial will take place
Friday afternoon at one o'clock at Antioch. She was one of the
oldest residents of the county and leaves a host of sorrowing
friends and relatives.
