Mrs. Elizabeth Maas, 91 years old, passed away last Sunday noon in the Evanston Nursing home, following a brief illness. She was the grandmother of Miss Clara Maas, who lives at 2204 Thornwood avenue, Wilmette. Mrs. Maas, born in Bohemia, came to Chicago in 1855 and had resided there until her death. As one of Chicago's early settlers, she was able to recall many interesting incidents about the city's history, particularly of the Civil war era. Besides her granddaughter, Mrs. Maas is survived by a grandson, Frederick Philip Maas of Chicago. Her husband and son preceded her in death. Funeral services and interment were at Waldheim cemetery on Wednesday.
