Mrs. Jefferson Churchill, Age 76 Years, Died Today From Complication of Diseases.
Last of Eight Children

Mrs. Jefferson Churchill, age seventy-six years, died early this morning of a complication of diseases following an illness of several weeks. She suffered from gall stones, cancer of the liver and kidney trouble. Dr. John B. Long of Indianapolis, her nephew, said that no doctor on earth could have saved Mrs. Churchill. She had been taking treatment at the Sexton's sanitorium.
Mrs. Churchill was born in this county in November, 1837, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin F. Reeve. She is the last of a family of eight children, being the youngest. The next youngest child was the late J. B. Reeve. She and Mr. Churchill were married January 13, 1856. Four children were born, but only one is alive. They have lived in 421 North Morgan street thirty-six years. Mrs. Churchill was a member of the Main Street Christian church.
Mrs. Churchill is survived by her husband and one son, Earl, of Denver, Colorado, who has been at his mother's bedside, but left only last night. He was reached by wire and was expected to arrive tonight. The funeral will be held at the residence Friday afternoon at one-thirty o'clock with the Revs. C. M. Yocum of the Christian church and A. D. Batchelor of the Methodist church in charge.
