|SHANNON - Died, at her home, No. 192 Fayette street, Allegheny, Pa., on Friday, December 3, 1886, Mrs. A. E. Shannon, aged 52 years. |
The deceased was a daughter of the late Christian Ihmsen, who, in his day, was a well known citizen of Pittsburgh, and who was also well known to a number of our older citizens. Mrs. Shannon was a resident of this place for the past two years and only removed to Allegheny about two months ago. She was afflicted with cancer, and as the disease was gradually eating her life away she removed to Allegheny in order that her end might be among relatives and friends. She was highly esteemed both in Pittsburg (sic) and in this place by a large circle of friends and acquaintances for her many Christian virtues. Her remains were brought to this place on Saturday last and interred in the Catholic cemetery on Monday. Peace to her ashes.
