LAWTON - in this city, September 18, 1890, Mary, beloved mother of Michael and John LAWTON, a native of county Waterford, Ireland.
Dead; Dead; Is dear grandma dead?
Has the warm heart ceased to beat?
Will she never more see her dear ones,
Or, in loving their names repeat?
Hush! dear ones, your willfed murmurings-
Her soul is with her God on high;
The earth contains naught but the casket-
The jewel is set in the sky. -Mary-
Friends and acquaintances are respectfully
invited to attend the funeral to-morrow (Saturday), at 9 o'clock a.m. from her late residence, 418 Fulton street: thence to Sacred Heart church, where a solemn requiem mass will be celebrated for the repose of her soul, commencing at 9:30 o'clock a.m.
Interment private, Mount Calvary cemetery. Please omit flowers.
