Mrs. Henry Curran Dies at Her Home East of Tampico Tuesday Morning at 7 O'clock

Mrs. Henry Curran died Tuesday morning at 7 o'clock at the family residence four miles northeast of Tampico after suffering for nearly three months with severe stomach trouble. The funeral services were held Thursday morning at 10 o'clock at St. Mary's church here, services being conducted by the pastor, Rev. L.S. DuFour. Interment was in St. Mary's cemetery.

The deceased was born fifty-two years ago last May on a farm south of Tampico and has spent practically all of her life in this community where she is well known and liked. She was married thirty years ago last August to Henry Curran who with two children, are the surviving members of the family. She also leaves one brother, John Raynor, of Woodward, Okla., a former well known Tampico merchant, and a sister, Mrs. John Henrekin who lives east of town. She was a good woman and was loved by her relatives and friends who have the sympathy of all in their loss.
