The Death Today of a Resident of Paducah For Nearly Half a Century.
Mrs. Hortense Bougeno, a resident of Paducah for nearly a half-score of years, died at 11:55
o'clock this morning at her home, 306 South Third street, after a long illness from Bright's
disease. Mrs. Bougeno had been in ill-health for a number of years and had been confined to
her room for the past twelve months. The end had been expected for some days.
She was born in France, but had lived in this city for forty-five years and was widely known
on the South Side. She was the wife of William Bougeno, who survives her.
Besides her husband she left three daughters, Mrs. Gus English, Mrs. E.D. Thurman and Mrs. Ed
Kruger, and two sons, John and Henry Bougeno, all of this city, and a large number of
grandchildren and other relatives. She was a member of the First Baptist church.
The funeral services will take place from the residence Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev.
G.W. Perryman will officiate. Interment at Oak Grove.
