Note: The Eau Claire Telegram, 6 Feb 1902: The Death Roll. Mrs. Katherine Horan died this morning at hte hospital of the Sacred Heart. Katherine Horan was born in Ireland on June 24, 1812; married in 1832; emigrated to America in 1835; came to Eau Claire County in 1865 and had resided here for the last thirty seven years. She leaves four sons, John W., Timothy F., Thomas and Emmet, and two daughters, Mrs. John McDonough and Mrs. Frank McDonough. Another daughter, Mrs. Hogan, long a resident of this city, died a few years ago. Mrs. Horan was a lady of great force of character; of gentle, generous and kindly disposition and intense love of home and family, and was a most devout Christian. For may years and since the death of her husband she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Frank McDonough; and always enjoyed esceedingly goo health, being remarkably active until a few weeks ago when she had the misfortune to fall and fracture one of her limbs. Although living for a score of years beyond the alloted span ordinarily given to mortals, she retained all of her faculties and within a month of her death could recall, and delighted to recite, the songs of her childhood and the pure gems of Irish ballads with which she enriched her mind probably four-score years ago. She loved her home and family. To her the great field of usefulness was home; the wife's and mother's chief desire to make it pleasant, agreeable and attractive. To see the members of her family advance and prosper and to cheer them upward and onward, she esteemed as her choicest pleasure. While her chief interest and ambition were centered in home, she always had a kind word and generous hand for others. She was a devout, practical Christian, and fearlessly and hopefully departed this life to meet her reward in that life for which this has been merely a preparation. Verily, her life has been one of usefulness, contentment and happiness, and it is confidently hoped that her good deeds and pious acts, so well performed here below, suitably prepared her for the bliss of that realm of happiness, the Christian's fondest hope.
