      Mrs. McConnell, a patient in the hospital since Wednesday, had gone to the bathroom when she collapsed and died. She had been ill for more than two years of a heart condition and had been under the care of a physician for a long period of time.

      Surviving her, besides her husband, a retired farmer, are seven sons, Albert B. and Chester W., Watertown, Leland B., Lomita, Calif., Olin, Everett, Mass., Warren G., Fernwood, Calvin C., Adams, and Melzer B., Mexico; eight daughters, Mrs. Benjamin (Emma M.)
