Margaret McCarthy Gill (1874-1917)

Mrs. Patrick W. Gill

On the 26th of November, Margaret, beloved wife of P. W. Gill, departed this life. Though called suddenly she was not unprepared as her whole life was a careful preparation for a calm, peaceful ending which was her’s when her summons came. Her husband and three devoted daughters are left to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and loving mother.

Of a modest, retiring disposition, her happiness and pleasure were found in her home and church duties. Often beyond her strength she exerted herself to further along any worthy or charitable object that appealed to her. A host of friends will miss her from midst but most of all she will be missed in her own home circle.

A solemn requiem Mass was celebrated Friday, Nov. 30th, by Rev. Vincent McCarthy of Buffalo, a nephew of the deceased, assisted by Fr. Frank Coughlin of Erie, Pa., as Deacon, Fr. Chas. Cauley of Erie, Pa., as Sub deacon, Fr. Bernard Gill of Randolph, master of ceremonies, Fr. Mountain of Belfast, Fr. Kampain of Angelica and Fr. Porter of Cuba were in the sanctuary.

A brief and very impressive sermon on Death was preached by Fr. Cauley, a cousin of the deceased and the last ceremonial rites of the church were observed. A large concourse of people followed the remains of a loved relative and friend to her last resting place attesting to the high esteem to which she was held.

Among relatives from out of town were: D. F. McCarthy of Friendship, father of the deceased; ??? McCarthy and family of Hornell; Chas. McCarthy and wife of Oil City; Frank McCarthy and wife of Arkport; Mrs. W. Snyder and daughter of East Aurora and Miss Alice McCarthy of Friendship, all brothers and sisters of the deceased.

Also Sister M. Fidilis; Sister M. Bernadette; Mrs. D.A. McCarthy; Mrs. F. Garrity, all of Buffalo; Mrs. Chas. Gaegle, Mrs. W. Schaller of Pittsburg; Daniel Crowley, Winifred and Chas.
