Mr. Lavelle was born in Ireland 76 years ago, coming to America at the age of four years. The past three winters he spent in Charlotte in order to avoid the rigors of the New England winters.

Death of Patrick Lavelle

News was received early Thursday morning that Patrick Lavelle was seriously ill at the hospital in Charlotte N. C., where he went accompanied by his youngest daughter to spend the winter. R. C. Berry, a son-in-law, left immediately for that place to render what assistance he might. Word came later in the day that Mr. Lavelle had passed away so that Mr., Berry discontinued his journey at New York and there awaited Miss Katherine Lavelle, who accompanied the body home. They arrived here early Saturday morning having been joined at Springfield, Mass., by Miss Mary Berry, a granddaughter of the deceased. The body was at once taken to the home of Mr. and Mr. R. C. Berry to await the funeral services which were held at 9 o'clock Monday morning at the Catholic church of which the deceased was a life long communicant and supporter. Owing to illness of Rev. A. P. Claremont, Rev. Devoy of Waterbury officiated, M. Murphy, having charge of the funeral on account of the illness of Undertaker F. J. Kenyon. W. E. Powers, M. Purtell, A. L. Terrien, H. Burnham, Thomas Green, and Thomas Bryan acted as bearers. Interment was made in the new Catholic cemetery.

Mr. Lavelle was born in Ireland 76 years ago. Early in life, he came to this vicinity as a farm laborer finding employment among the farmers of Jericho. It was here he met and married Ellen Lacey and together they made a home for themselves in the same neighborhood. Six children came to gladden this home, four of whom survive their father. Mrs. Mary Glynn of Burlington, Mrs. Margaret Berry of this village, Miss Katherine Lavelle, and Thomas Lavelle, of San Francisco, Cal. Later they moved to Boston where they lived until failing sight compelled Mr. Lavelle to retire when he came with his family to reside on South Main street. It was here what Mrs. Lavelle's death occurred five years ago. Since then Mr. Lavelle divided his time between the homes of his daughters, spending two subsequent winters in North Carolina.

By his quiet industrious habits he commanded the respect of every community in which he lived and the family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in the loss of a kind and loving father. No particular disease was the direct cause of his death beyond a general breakdown and he passed away as quietly as he had lived. Among those from out of town to attend the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Phillips and Mrs. H. E. Flynn, Essex; Misses Anna, Agnes, and Mary McGovern, John Lavelle, Mrs. Ellen Cunningham of Burlington, Mrs. W. D. Agan, Miss Kate Phillips, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Phillips, Mr. and Mrs. F. R. O'Brien, P. Corvin of Bolton.
