Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre, PA) - January 3, 1916
Mrs. Maria Gill, aged 75, died last night at 6 at her home on Matson avenue, Parsons of complications. Some three years ago Mrs. Gill suffered a slight stroke and since had been in ill health. She was born at Hawley and later lived at Inkerman. Upon marriage to her late husband, John Gill, who preceded her death twenty-one years ago almost to the day, she came to Parsons and had lived here for fifty-five years, and was one of the oldest residents of that town in point of years of residence. She was a member of St. Dominic's church and was identified with the Altar and Rosary society.
A woman of noble character, active and interested in many movements for the public good, she was known and loved by a wide circle of acquaintances who mourn the passing of such a lovable person. She is survived by the following children: Thomas Gill, merchant, and Richard Gill, foreman for the L. V. Coal Co., of Parsons; Sister Marcella of St. Dominic's convent, Oyster Bay, N. Y., and Sister Ricarda of St. Joseph's convent, New Born, N. C.
