Breed, Hannah (12 AUG 1856 – 30 MAR 1916)

Mrs. Frank Breed, who was taken to an Eau Claire hospital a couple of weeks ago, died there on Thursday and the remains were brought home for interment, the funeral occurring Sunday. Mrs. Breed was born Hannah O’Brien on Aug. 12, 1856, at Merritsville, Canada. She came to Wisconsin in April, 1869, and was united in marriage to Frank Breed on Dec. 25, 1876. Three children were born to them, Mary E., Margaret and Robert, all of whom, with their father, survive the deceased. She is also survived by one brother and one sister, John O’Brien of town Levis and Mrs. M.D. Zwight of Ferndale, Ore.

Mrs. Breed was a member of the Congregational church and was a woman who stood high in the esteem of a large circle of friends and acquaintances. She was a woman of kindly nature, a splendid wife and mother and an excellent neighbor and her death is sincerely regretted by all. She was a member of the Rebekah Lodge. The deceased was laid to rest Sunday afternoon, services being conducted by Rev. Longnecker and interment was made in the Neillsville Cemetery.

Among those who were here for the funeral were Mrs. W.E. Secord of Green Bay, Clarence Breed and wife of Holcomb, Mrs. Emma Duxbury and Mrs. Chas. Gates of Alma Center.
