Peter Gill of Woodward street died Saturday afternoon after a week’s illness of pleuro-pneumonia. Toward the last few days his condition was critical and death was not unexpected, but owing to the brief time since he took to his bed and previous good health his death came as a severe shock.

He was a native of Parsons and well liked by all. At one time he became quite well know throughout the valley as a dancemaster and prompter. He was possessed of an amiable disposition and a host of friends will mourn their loss. He was a member of St. Dominic’s Church and also of the Holy Name Society.

He is survived by his wife and daughter Veda; his mother, Mrs. Richard Gill of Hollenback avenue, and the following brother and sisters: Mrs. Frank Christopher and Mrs. Patrick Maloney of Parsons; John J., Margaret and Bridget at home. Funeral will be held Tuesday morning at 9 o’clock with a requiem high mass in St. Dominic's Church. Interment will be in St. Mary's Cemetery.
