John Ling, a resident of Wilmette for forty-two years, passed away at the Church Home for Aged Persons, 5445 Ingleside avenue, Chicago, last Thursday, October 25. Funeral services were held there on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock. Burial was private at Memorial Park cemetery.
Mr. Ling, who was in his eighty-seventh year, came to America from Hull, England, when a lad of nine years. He received his early education in the schools of Albany, N. Y., and Clinton, Ia., coming to Illinois in 1864 when he began the study of law at Wheaton college.
From 1870 until 1926 Mr. Ling practiced law in Chicago. He was one of the oldest members of the Chicago Bar association, and his name appears on the honor roll of that organization. In the early life of the village of Wilmette, Mr. Ling took an active part, and he maintained his interest until his death.
Surviving him are his widow, Mrs. Anna Hall Ling, of Chicago, a daughter, Mrs. Frederick Norman, and two grandsons, John F. Norman, and J. Marshall Ling, of Wilmette.
