The Lyons Republican
November 5, 1897


DORAN, – At the home of her daughter, in Pioneer township, on Tuesday, November 2, 1897, at 2 o’clock p. m. Grandma Doran, aged 96 years.

The deceased has been poorly for the past year or two but previous to that time she enjoyed good health and was able to read a newspaper without the use of spectacles.

She was probably the oldest person in Rice county and leaves a large circle of friends to mourn her loss.  She has been a resident of that section for the past 15 years.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. church at Chase at 2 o’clock p. m. Wednesday.
