Mrs. Margaret J. Shively
Mrs. Margaret J. Shively, widow of W. H. Shively, after whom Shively Station in Jefferson county was named, died at noon yesterday at the home of her son-in-law, Capt. Frank Portman, 2117 West Madison street, at the age of 82. Two years ago Mrs. Shively suffered a fracture of her hip, and she had almost recovered from this injury when she had a stroke of apoplexy eight months ago. She never recovered fully from that attack.

Many relatives of the deceased live in all parts of the State, and she was widely known in Jefferson county. She is survived by four children, Mrs. Portman, Mrs. Sam T. Phillips, Mrs. Sue Alsop and Harry Shively. A number of grandchildren, among them the Rev. H. R. Short, and several great-grandchildren also survive. The funeral will be held at 10:30 o'clock to-morrow morning at the Millcreek church, and interment will be in the family burial place in Shively.
