Death Came Tuesday Night After a Few Days of Critical Illness


The death of Mrs. Eliza J. Tichenor occurred Tuesday night at ?: 15 o'clock at her home in West Broadway. Mrs. Tichenor had for a number of years been in ill health, but her last illness had been of a critical nature only a little more than a week.


She was one of the community's well known and most esteemed women, and the announcement of her death came as a shock to a large circle of friends and relatives.


The funeral will be held at the family home Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the Rev. E. G. Hildner, of the First Presbyterian church, conducting the services. The body will be laid to rest beside her husband, the late James Albert Tichenor in Wamock cemetery.


Eliza J. Mauck was bom in Owensville August 7 1850, the daughter of Abraham and Nancy Jones Mauck, members of well known pioneer families of Indiana.


On October 4, 1881, she was married to James Albert Tichenor, of Princeton. To them were born two children, who survive.  Miss Mabel E., a teacher in the Princeton high school, and Mrs. Maude Witherspoon, wife of James F. Witherspoon, of this city.


The husband and father passed away May 23, 1900.


There survive also three brothers, Charles Mauck of Twin Cities, Idaho, and Frank and Arthur Mauck, of Princeton, the two latter being half-brothers.


Mrs. Tichenor was a tender, loving companion and mother, deeply devoted to her home. Her thoughtfulness for others marked her life with kind deeds, and she leaves for her loved ones and those who knew her best (unreadable line).
