Antioch News4 June 1914
Mrs. Eugene Strang passed away at her home on North County street, at Waukegan, Friday night at 6:10 o'clock following a brief illness. She was 54 years of age. Death is attributed to uraemic poisoning and a stoke of paralysis. Both conditions developed simultaneously last Wednesday morning. From that time on her condition was regarded as extremely critical and few hopes were entertained for her recovery.
Everything possible was done for her but in spite of all her condition appeared to grow worse daily and on Friday it was said she would not be able to live the day out. Either the uraemic poisoning or the stroke would have been very serious in itself but coming in unison it proved too much.
Mrs. Strang's maiden name was Evaretta Hook, she being a daughter of the late Wm. Hook of Warren township. Mrs. Strang had made her home in Waukegan for many years and she leaves many warm friends who are saddened by her unexpected death.
Besides her husband she leaves one son George, who is employed in the Security Savings bank.
The funeral was held Monday morning at ten o'clock at the home, Rev. Waterbury, pastor of the First Congregational church presiding. Thence to Millburn cemetery for interment.
