One of Haddam's older residents died at her home Friday evening, when Mrs. Mary ALKIRE passed away after several weeks of illness.

Mary Ann ALKIRE, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac ALKIRE, was born March 10, 1861 at Champagne, IL, in Paxton Co, and departed this life at her home in Haddam June 30, 1944 , at the age of 83 years, 3 months and 20 days.

On June 6, 1885 she was united in marriage to Isaac Richard ALKIRE who preceded her in death Feb. 16, 1938. To this union eight children were born of which three survive her; Mrs. Martha ROECHEK, Roy ALKIRE, both of Haddam and Mrs Geneva JUREY of Norcator, KS.

Five children have preceded her in death; Mrs. May MONROE, Mrs. Goldie JUREY, Lida ALKIRE
and Minda ALKIRE. She has been a resident of this vicinity for 73 years. A good many years ago she united with the Haddam church. Her love and sympathy won her many friends.

She leaves to mourn her passing, besides her three children, a nephew of the home, John CONBOY
