Mokena News Bulletin - Friday February 02, 1940

Mrs. Sam Fulton, 80 years of age, who has been ill for some time, died in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Clara Mayfing in Tinley Park last Friday.

Funeral services were held from the late home Sunday afternoon, with Rev. L.E. Weinreich of the Tinley Park Methodist Church officiating. burial was made in Smith Cemetery.


Her name was Jennie McMurray Fulton. The memorial book at the Tinley Park Historical Society which gives date of death as 27 Jan 1940, and burial on 30 Jan 1940 -- this conflicts with the newspaper article which would compute to be 26 Jan (death) and 28 Jan (burial). The memorial book, prepared by the funeral home, would have a higher level of accuracy than the newspaper article.
