1920 Memoriams & Cards of Thanks

From page 25 of the January 2, 1920 issue of the Chicago Daily News;


“BOER-Louisa, Dec. 31, beloved wife of John Boer, mother of Jenetta and Raymond Chas. Baker and Mrs. Jay Casey of Wooster, O., sister of Emma, Minnie, Dora and Charles Gerloff. Funeral Saturday, 2:30 p.m., from late residence, 1024 Newport-av., interment at Mount Olive cemetery. Detroit (Mich.) and Rockford (Ill.) papers please copy.”

“CURRAN-CATHERINE. In loving memory of our dear mother who died one year ago to-morrow, Jan. 3, 1919. Anniversary mass to-morrow at 6:30 Blessed  Sacrament church. We saw her suffer and heard her sigh, But with aching hearts and weeping eyes, We saw her sinking hour by hour, We could not save ber from death’s power, But now she calmly sleeps at last, All pains, all aches, all suffering past. The moon is shining on her grave, Beneath lies the one we love but whom we could not save. From loving husband and children.”

“DAVIS-DAVID. In memory of our beloved father who passed away three years ago today. His loving children.”

“PERTL-EDWIN. In sad and loving remembrance of my dear beloved son and our brother, who passed away one year ago to-day, Jan. 2, 1919. Gone but not forgotten. May his soul rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon you. Mother and brothers”


“I wish to express my most sincere thanks and appreciation to my many friends and relatives for their kind sympathy and beautiful floral offerings in my recent bereavement in the loss of my dear husband Lawrence G. Morehouse. I wish especially to thank the Ancient Free and A[?] Masons of Illinois and Wisconsin and the Rev. Jesse J. Kolmos for the services rendered. Mrs. C.M. Morehouse.”

“We wish to thank our kind relatives and friends, also Chicago Banner camp, W.O.W., and Rothchild’s Furniture club, for the kindness and sympathy shown in our late bereavement of my husband, James H. Brady, Mrs. Mary Brady & children”
