McGrogan, Hanora (1856? - 15 OCT 1906)

Died, at her home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), on Monday, Oct. 15, 1906, of cancer, Mrs. Hanora, wife of John McGrogan, aged 50 years.

Hanora Sullivan was born at Greenfield, Milwaukee County, Wis., and when a young child moved with her parents to Morrisontown, Brown County, Wis., where she grew to womanhood, and where on July 8, 1885, she was united in marriage with John McGrogan and immediately came to this village to reside. Since making her home here she has formed a large circle of acquaintances, who sincerely regret her untimely call into the great beyond, and the sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved husband and family in their sad bereavement.

Mrs. McGrogan was a true Christian, practicing at all times her undying faith in a future world much more beautiful than this where sin and suffering could not abide. Her strength of character was shown in her last few months of life, during which time not a murmur of discontent at her approaching fate escaped her lips. Though ambitious and frugal in her daily walk, she was nevertheless kind and gentle in her intercourse with neighbors and friends, by all of whom she will be sadly missed. She loved to work about her home, constantly endeavoring to improve and brighten the surroundings so cherished by her home-loving nature.

No children were born to this union but a constant and watchful care was bestowed by her over the young children of Mr. McGrogan left motherless at a tender age..

Besides her husband, she leaves five step-children, Mamie and Wm. J. McGrogan, Mrs. Ollie Peterson, and Maggie and Mattie McGrogan, also one sister, Mrs. James Keeslan of Kaukauna, and two brothers, Timothy and Michael Sullivan of Morrisontown, Brown County, Wis.

Funeral services will be held this (Thursday) morning at St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Rev. A. Arentz officiating, interment taking place in the Catholic Cemetery.
