Death of Prosper Mitchell

Prosper Mitchell, aged 68 years, of Lake st., died while in the Holy Angels church Thursday afternoon a little before 5:30 o'clock. Mr. Mitchell was a well know business man in this city having been in the shoe business here for about 41 years. Thursday afternoon he left his place of business as usual and stopped in at the church which is on the way between his home and store. A little after 5:30 a woman who had entered the church saw Mr. Mitchell in the aisle of the church on the floor and called the attention of the Rev. L. R. Derochers to the fact. He summoned Dr. J. G. Perault and on examination it was found that Mr. Mitchell was dead and Dr. Arthur Morton, the city health officer, was summoned. The man's death was attributed to heart failure. His wife died about two weeks ago, the funeral having been held October 18. Mr. Mitchell, who served in Company F, 2nd Vt. Vols., in the Civil War, was a member of A. R. Hurlbut Post, No. 60, G.A.R. He is survived by seven children, Sister Marie, of Cherubins, and Hermine, of Montreal, Mrs. F. DeMers, Laura and Lillie Mitchell of this city, and two sons, Prosper Mitchell Jr. and Joseph Mitchell of this city
