Full Text

While on the way to church last Sunday morning, Mrs. Fannie Leach, 521 Eleventh street, suddenly complained to friends that she was feeling ill and decided to return home. While still some distance from her residence, her condition became acute and she found it necessary to ask for assistance. She was carried to her home by two men who chanced to be passing and shortly afterward passed away. Attending physicians stated that her sudden illness and death were caused be [sic] a cerebral hemorrhage.

Mrs. Leach had been a resident of Wilmette for about a year, having moved here from Rogers Park. During that period she had made a host of friends and held a position of very high esteem among her acquaintances. She was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and at the time of her death was seventy years of age.

Funeral services were held from the St. Augustine's Episcopal church Wednesday, Dr. Hubert Carleton officiating. Immediately following the services the body was taken to Kenosha for interment. Mrs. Leach is survived by her husband, Cephas h. Leach; two daughters, Mrs. Margaret Pitts of Bloomington, Illinois, and Miss Irmograde L. Leach, a teacher in the Lake View High school; and a son, Robert Leach, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In the excitement surrounding her sudden illness members of the family failed to obtain the names of the men who aided her in getting home. They are now very anxious to get in touch with them in order to thank them and to obtain information regarding the situation at that time.
