DEATH OF MRS. J.C. CRON CAUSE OF DEEP REGRET

 

Passing of Well Known Piqua Resident Occurs Early Monday Morning.

 

     The heartfelt sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved family of Mrs. J. C. Cron, whose death came at twenty minutes past seven o’clock this morning at her home on Broadway.  Mrs. Cron’s death ends an illness of over a year, during which time her devoted husband and sons have done everything in their power to help her brave fight to regain her health and her wide circle of friends have anxiously hoped for her ultimate recovery.

     Stella Denman Cron was born on September 19th, 1874 in Springcreek township, the daughter of the late John and Rebecca Denman.  When she was about four years of age she came with her family to Piqua to make her home and has resided here ever since.  On June 1st, 1898  she was united in marriage to Mr. Jackson C. Cron, member of a prominent Piqua family, and to this union were born three sons and one daughter, the latter, Irene Cron, passing away when only four years of age on May 13th, 1908, her loss causing the deepest sorrow of her mother’s life.

     Mrs. Cron was a valued member of the United Presbyterian Church; she belonged to the Research Club, of which she at one time was president, and she was affiliated with the Pickawilliany Club of the Y.W.C.A., in whose activities she found work that she greatly enjoyed.  She was the beloved center of her family circle, adored by her husband and sons, holding a unique place in their affection and confidence.  She was a sociable person with an un-ususally large number of warm friends, who will keenly feel her loss.

     Left to mourn her are her husband: three sons, Kenneth, John and Robert Cron, and one grandson, Richard Cron, all of Piqua; two brothers, Bert C. Denman, of Chicago, and Marion Denman, of Salem, Ohio.

     Funeral services will be held on Wednesday afternoon at two o’clock at the residence, 411 Broadway, with interment at Forest Hill Cemetery.
