Gaines Young, until recently a resident of Wilmette and connected with the Northern Trust company of Chicago, was taken by death Thursday, July 3, in the Methodist hospital at Indianapolis, Ind., following an operation.

Mr. Young was operated upon for appendicitis at St. Luke's hospital, Chicago, some time ago, going directly from the hospital to visit his fiancee, Miss Charlotte Brandon Howe, at Indianapolis, where he fell into what proved to be a fatal illness.

Funeral services were held at Vincennes, Ind., February 16, 1898, and home of his brother. [sic]

Mr. Young was born near Vincennes, Ind., February 16, 1898 and was a graduate of La Porte High school in 1917. He received the A. B. degree at the University of Indiana in 1921 and concluded a course in the Harvard Business school in 1923, subsequently accepting a position in the bonding, analyzing and statistics department of the Northern Trust company.

He was a member of the Baptist church, the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and the masonic order.

He is survived by his parents, five brothers and a sister and was to have been married this fall.

Mr. Young's sister, Miss Edith Young, is a well known resident of Wilmette, having been an instructor in piano here during the past four years.
