MOTHER DIES IN OLD COUNTRY
Margaret Feeney, the president of the Altar and Rosary society of the Sacred
Heart cathedral, this morning received word from her old home in County Sligo,
Ireland, of the death there, Tuesday, Oct. 7, of her mother, Mrs. Thomas
Gilroy. The sad tidings came as a great shock to Mrs. Feeney, who had hoped to
go over to Ireland next summer on a visit to her old home. Mrs. Gilroy had been
in failing health for the past year and was confined to her bed.

The funeral of Michael Hopper will be held this morning at 9 o'clock from the late home with services at St. Anthony's church at 9 o'clock. Interment will be made at St. Marguerite's cemetery. Mr. Hopper was a resident of Davenport for 45 years, having moved here from New York City. He was born in County Sligo, Ireland, on September 22, 1882, and came to this county in 1842, remaining for five years a resident of New York City and moving to this city ever since. Death was due to old age. A wife, Mary Hopper, and five children, remain to mourn his departure. They are Mrs. Mary Fayr of 1025 Scott street, at whose home he was when death overtook him; Mrs. James A. Tarkan, also of this city; Mrs. Henry Moss of Moline; Thomas M Regan of this city and Mrs. Edward Martin of Sioux City.
[Dates transcribed as in article. WPA grave records shows date of death as 12 May 1902 at 80Y so he was probably born in 1822].
