The funeral of Miss Katie Slavin, professional nurse, who died at St. Joseph's Hospital, in Lexington, Monday night, from the effects of a stroke paralysis sustained in Paris several days previous was held at St. paul's church in Lexington, Wednesday morning at nine o'clock. The pall bearers were James Lyons, Thos. Slavin, Wm. Klair, Jos. Luigart and John Mooney. The interment took place in the family lot in Calvary Cemetery in Lexington.
Miss Slavin had for the past five years been employed as nurse for Joseph Clay, on Pleasant street. Shortly after retiring for the night, Miss Slavin attempted to rise from her bed and fell to the floor. The noise attracted the attention of members of the household, who hastened to her assistance. She was found in an unconcious condition, and was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where she lingered for several days without regaining consciousness.
Miss Slavin was left an orphan at an early period in life, and had made her home in Lexington with the family of Hon. William Klair, being a cousin of Mrs. Klair. She was highly regarded for her splendid qualifications as a nurse, and for her pleasing personality.
