Death Comes After An Illness of Three Days, at Haswell, Colorado.

Mrs. Margaret Ryan, for many years a resident of this city, died at Haswell, Colo., May 25th, after an illness of but three days following a stroke of appoplexy. The body was shipped to Worthington for interment, the funeral being held this morning at nine o'clock.

Mrs. Ryan was born at Sligo, Ireland, Nov. 20, 1848, and migrated with her parents to Canada at the age of three years. She was united in marriage to John Ryan on Jan. 27th, 1869. While still a resident of Canada, fifteen children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Ryan, twelve of whom survive her.

Mr. and Mrs. Ryan moved to Nobles county in 1883, and located on a farm two and a half miles west of this city. A few years after the death of Mr. Ryan, which occurred on July 29, 1895, Mrs. Ryan moved to this city with her family. Since then, and until five weeks previous to her death, she resided in this city and during that time made many friends, in fact with all she came in contact. Although called upon to bear many great trials and sorrows, Mrs. Ryan was always of a patient and cheerful disposition and a kind and loving mother.

In October, of last year, Mrs. Ryan took up a homestead at Haswell, Colo., on which she took up her residence about five weeks ago. She was residing there when she was stricken with appoplexy, May 22nd. Her death resulted three days later. The children who survive Mrs. Ryan are: Messrs. John and Peter Ryan, of Minneapolis; Thomas Ryan, of Omaha; Miss Mary Ryan, of Sioux City; Miss Marguerite and Robert Ryan, of Haswell, Colo.; Misses Lizzie, Agnes, Dorothy, Catherine, Theresa and Patrick Ryan, of this city.

The many friends of Mrs. Ryan were grieved to hear of her sudden death, and join with the Globe in extending to the family the deepest condolence and sympathy.
