DEATH OF MRS. MARY KUSCH
INSKY, SUNDAY M0RNIN6.AT
THE AGE OF EIGHTY YEARS
From Monday's Dally.
Yesterday morning at an early hour
Mrs. Mary Kuschinsky, an aged lady
residing on Wintersteen Hill, passed
away at her home after a short ill
ness due to the infirmities of her ad
vanced years, she being some 80 years
of age at the time of her death. Mrs.
Kuschinsky had resided here for a
great many years, and while leading
a retired life, made many friends in
the circles in which she moved, who
will learn with the deepest regret of
her death, and her place in the family
circle will be one hard to fill, as she
had been a most kind and loving
mother and friend to her children and
grandchildren. The funeral services
of this worthy lady will be held at 10
o'clock tomorrow morning from St.
John's Catholic church and interment
will be mad3 in the Catholic cemetery
west of this city.
