Johanna McGinnis

Johanna Therese Mountain McGinnis died in 1905. Her obit read: Mrs. Johanna McGinnis, the widow of John McGinnis and a most estimable Christian woman, died in the family home, 612 Thomas Street. An illness from blood poisoning, extending over a period of 11 days, prefaced the end. Prior to that timeMrs. McGinnis was an unusually robust, strong woman.

From her infancy Mrs. McGinnis has lived in Youngstown and both as a girl and a woman had the sincerest regard and respect of everyone who knew her. She was a member of St. Columba's church since her babyhood and was loyal to its every precept. As a neighbor she was generous and thoughtful, and as a wife and mother, everything that could be wished for --faithful and indulgent. The death of her husband occurred three months ago --a fact which adds to the grief of the nearly distracted children. They are Mrs. Thomas Clark, Mrs. John Reilly, Mrs. Martin Lynden, Miss Hannah, John J and William E McGinnis.
