Full Text

Mrs. Augusta Falk, widow of the late Justice Otto Falk, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. W. H. Boughen, 5621 Lawrence avenue, Chicago, Tuesday afternoon, August 10. Funeral services are being held today from the chapel at 5774 Lawrence avenue, and burial will be at the Memorial Park cemetery.

Mrs. Falk was 60 years of age and had been in ill health for some time. Since the death of her husband, Sunday, January 25, 1925, she had lived for a time with Mrs. Joseph Haberle, a sister, in Wisconsin. For the past several months she had lived with Mrs. Boughen. About two months ago she suffered a paralytic stroke from which she never recovered.

Mrs. Falk was born in Valparaiso, Ind., but had been a resident of Wilmette or the vicinity for the past thirty years. Justice Falk was well known on the north shore, having held the office of Justice of the Peace for many years. He was also the first secretary of the New Trier Commercial association, the forerunner of the present Chambers of Commerce in Wilmette, Winnetka, and Glencoe.

Mrs. Falk is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Boughen, of Chicago, Mrs. Haberle, of Wisconsin, and Mrs. Joseph Arnold, of Chicago. A fourth sister, Mrs. John Gottlieb, died last June.
