SLAVIN--Mrs. Bridget (Kelley) Slavin, widow of James J. Slavin, died Saturday evening at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M. J. Donahoe, 38 Wannalancit street. She was particularly well known in the Pawtucketvllle section where she resided for the past 30 years, yet she also claimed a legion of friends throughout the city, all of whom will regret her passing. A woman of many admirable traits of Christian character, charitable and devoted to every good cause, her life was an inspiration to thos who knew her. She was a fine type of the old-fashioned mother, with love, sympathy, and solicitude for others, forever present. She was born in Alton Bay, N.H., and came to Lowell about 65 years ago. Deceased was popular among her school friends and later was active and interested in many of the church and public affairs of the city. She was an attendant of St. Patrick's church and during her long residence in that parish was an ardent worker in all the affairs of that parish. Her interest also was felt in St. Rita's church affairs, and she will be most lovingly remembered by the people of that parish. Besides her daughter, she leaves two sons, James J. and Frank Slavin of New York; two brothers, Bernard J. and John J. Kelley of this city, and four grandchildren, Misses Edith, Gertrude, Eleanor, and Richard Donahoe.
