OBITUARY  -  Brady 
This community, which for several weeks had followed with deep sympathy the reports of the condition of Mrs. John J. Brady, was greatly saddened Monday, by the news of her death, which occurred in the Homeopathic Hospital, Rochester, on Monday morning at about five o'clock.   She had been in poor health for several years, suffering from internal troubles which caused a serious nervous condition, and at times, acute pain. It was thought that an operation would bring about a decided improvement in her health, and she went to the hospital, early in October.  She rallied splendidly from the effects of the operation, and there seemed every reason to believe that the hopes of family and friends were to be realized. A sudden change for the worse was followed by decided improvement, but this did not long continue, and for several days preceding her death it was known that she could not recover. Her husband and sister, Miss Mary Keating, were with her throughout her stay in the hospital and at the end. 
Elizabeth Keating was born in Victor, in January, 1874, the daughter of John and Margaret Moore Keating. She became the wife of John J. Brady, September 14, 1904, and for five years thereafter they resided in Macedon, returning to this village in 1910.  
Quiet and unassuming, Mrs. Brady found her greatest joy in the home life, to which she gave unsparingly of her thought and strength.  Her kindly, sympathetic nature and many graces of character won for her many warm friendships and the esteem of all with whom she came in contact. She was a devoted member of St. Patrick's church. 
Mrs. Brady is survived by her husband, her father, John Keating, a sister, Mary M. Keating, and two brothers, William F., and Fred B. Keating, all of Victor.  The remains were brought to the home on Maple Avenue, Monday afternoon, and funeral services were held in St. Patrick's church, Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, a solemn requiem mass being celebrated by Rev. J. J. Donnelly, pastor of the church, assisted by Rev. William Byrne of Rochester as deacon, Rev. James Tischer of Clyde as sub deacon, and Rev. P. A. Neville of East Bloomfield as master of ceremonies. Interment was made in St. Patrick's cemetery on High Street.
