Dennis Kehoe, 89, a respected resident of Monticello for many years, passed away at his home on South Chestnut street last Saturday evening. He recently suffered an attack of influenza which brought about complications incidental to old age, causing his death. Until his recent illness he had retained full use of all his faculties and was able to take an active part in business affairs.

Funeral services were held at the Sacred Heart church, Monticello, Tuesday morning at 9:30. Interment was made at Oakwood cemetery. Rev. Eugene Lorenz, Mr. Kehoe's pastor, read the mass.

Patrick Malloy, Ryan; and Rev. John Smith, Manchester.

Mr. Kehoe was born in New Foundland, Canada, Jan. 1, 1856, a son of Thomas and Bridget Kehoe. He was the youngest in a family of five, all of whom preceded him in death. He came with his parents as a young boy and settled n a farm in Castle Grove township, remaining there until 1900, when he moved to a farm two miles west of Monticello. In 1918 he retired from active farming and moved to his home on South Chestnut street where he lived until his death.

Mr. Kehoe was married in 1888 to Margaret Ellen Quirk, who also was a native of Canada, having come from the town of Peterboro. She passed away in Monticello, Nov. 10, 1931. Since her death Mr. Kehoe had lived in the home with his youngest daughter, Mabel.

Kehoe, Manchester; and Dr. William D. Kehoe, Ryan.
