Obituary of Miss Mary A. McCann
Miss Mary A. McCann, who had been matron at the county jail for about 12 years, died yesterday morning at the West Penn Hospital as the result of an operation performed last week. Miss McCann, who was 38 years old, was in apparently good health until she went to the hospital Tuesday and had experienced no serious illness previous to undergoing the operation, which was ordered by her physicians for a trouble of long standing.
Miss McCann was born in Freedonia, Mercer County, and was the daughter of Thomas McCann, one of the first settlers of that region. She attended Grove City College and left that school to teach for three years in the public schools of Freedonia. She was an attendant at the Dixmont Hospital, and about 12 years ago left that institution to become matron at the jail. She was very kindly, with all her dignity, and was a most efficient attaché of the jail. She was a member of the Roman Catholic Church and attended services at Saint Paul’s Cathedral. Her body was taken to Freedonia yesterday and will be buried tomorrow in All Saints’ Cemetery at that place. She is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Frank, of Freedonia: John, of Virginia: William, of Harrisville, Butler county: Louis, of Mercer county: Joseph, living at Homestead: Miss Katherine McCann, who lives in Rhode Island, and who came here to attend her sister during her dying hours: and Miss Laura McCann, of Freedonia
