A fractured hip, suffered in a fall six weeks ago, was the indirect cause of death on Friday morning, May 9, of Caroline Campbell Stevens, 530 Central avenue, who, had she lived until August 7 of this year would have reached the age of 93.
Burial services for Mrs. Stevens were held at El Paso, Ill., her former home on Monday morning.
Mrs. Stevens, who has been a resident of the village since 1911, was best known because of her keen interest in gardening. Despite her advanced years, Mrs. Stevens labored assiduously every summer in the flower beds surrounding her home and shortly before her death had been making elaborate plans for this season's planting. She was also an ardent movie fan and until recently was a frequent visitor at the Village theatre.
Mrs. Stevens was born in Perrington, Monroe county, N. Y., August 7, 1832.
She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Harriet Pomeroy and Miss Mary Stevens, both of Wilmette.
