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
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.
