The East Liverpool Tribune


Died at Greencastle, Indiana, After a Brief Illness of Appendicitis

Miss Georgia Croxall, aged 20, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Croxall, of Fifth street, died late Saturday afternoon January 27, 1906, at Greencastle, Ind., where she was attending DePauw university. Death followed a brief illness of appendicitis. Word was telegraphed to the relatives and friends in this city shortly after the end came. The parents and members of the family were at the daughter’s bedside when the last spark of life fled.

The remains will arrive in Chester over the Panhandle branch of the Pennsylvania lines at 7 o’clock this morning, and will be taken to the deceased’s late home in Fifth street. The hour of the funeral service will be arranged after the family’s arrival.

Miss Croxall had been ill less than 10 days and the suddenness of her death has brought deep sorrow to the family and friends. She was next to the oldest daughter, a favorite in the home and at school, a girl of splendid mental attainments, beloved by parents and by all who knew her.

She was a graduate and one of the honor students of the East Liverpool high school class of 1904. In the fall of the same year she entered the Ohio Wesleyan university at Delaware where she spent one year. Last falls he entered DePauw university at Greencastle for the purpose of completing a classical education which she had begun at the Ohio institution. She spent the Christmas holidays at home and expressed a great liking for the university and was getting well in her studies.

She had remarkable faculty for learning and was considered by her teachers as an extraordinary student. She was prepossessing in appearance and amiable in disposition. She made friends readily and held them fast. Cut off in the flower of her youth her death has brought sadness and gloom to many hearts.

Miss Croxall was born and reared in East Liverpool and since girlhood had been a member of the First Methodist Episcopal church. She is survived by her parents and two sisters, Maud and Margaret, living at home.
