THE WESTERN STAR, 22 May 1914
Obituary of CATHERINE McINTYRE
ANOTHER PIONEER SETTLER DEAD
Mrs. Catherine McIntyre Passes Away After Lingering Illiness. Live in Coldwater Since 1884.

Mrs. Catherine McIntyre died at the home of her son, F. M. McIntyre, in this city, at 9:50 p.m., on last Tuesday, May 19. About 14 years ago she suffered a partial stroke of paralysis and about four years ago a
second stroke left her almost helpless, so much so that she was confined to her bed practically all of the time. Through all her years of suffering Mrs. McIntyre was remarkable patient scarcely a murmur having ever been heard from her on account of her afllection. To her, death seemed but a relief from bodily infirmaties, and she approached the end with perfect resignation.

Funeral services were conducted at the home at
2:30 yesterday afternoon, Rev. W. B. Leonard of the Presbyterian church being in charge. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery.

Catherine Delia Foley was born in the province of Limerick, in Ireland, on March 27, 1838. At the time of death her age was 76 years, 1 month and 22 days. After her marriage, and after coming to America, she and her husband lived in Missouri for a few years. Mr. McIntrye died in that state about 32 years ago. In the fall of 1884 Mrs. McIntyre and her family moved to Comanche-co., thus becoming pioneer settlers here. They have made this city their home ever since that time. Deceased was held in high esteem by all of her acquaintances. Her life was one of willing service for her family and those about her. The surviving children are: John McIntyre and F. M. McIntyre, Mrs. W. H. Kimple and Mrs. J. L. Stanley of this city, and Mrs. L. F. Bardwell of Clearwater, Kans.
