Foley, Katherine (13 MAR 1908 - 20 DEC 1936)
Katherine Foley, well known daughter of Dr. and Mrs. F.P. Foley of Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.), received fatal injuries as the result of an auto-trolley crash at St. Louis, Mo., Sunday.
Miss Foley was taking a six months’ course in advanced operating room technique at St. Louis Hospital there, and was killed as she and two other nurses were on their way to church. Her companions were also killed, as the car in which they were riding swung into a street car and was crashed against a cement trolley pole.
Funeral services were held this morning at St. Louis Catholic Church at Dorchester, Wis. She is survived by her parents and five brothers.
Miss Foley, formerly a dietician at the Wis. General Hospital at Madison, was born in Dorchester and was a graduate of the high school at that place.
