Services Tomorrow For Prominent Resident
Mrs. Julia Ann Tuomy, 82 years old, a member of two prominent Washtenaw county families, the Kearneys and the Tuomys, died Saturday night at the 2117 Washtenaw Ave., to which she came as a bride 52 years ago. She had been ill for six weeks.
Born Nov. 13, 1855, in Northfield township, she was the daughter of Thomas and Katherine Duffy Kearney, early Northfield settlers. She was educated at St. Mary's convent in Monroe, and was married Sept. 3, 1885, to Cornelius L. Tuomy, Ann Arbor township farmer. He died June 29, 1912.
The family was responsible for the development of Tuomy Hills in the Washtenaw Ave. section and a road named for the family borders the present west boundary of their home.
Mrs. Tuomy was a member of St. Thomas Catholic church, the Altar society of the church, and the American Legion auxiliary.
She is survived by a son, Cornelius W. Tuomy, Washtenaw county drain commissioner, a daughter, Miss Kathryn G. Tuomy, and a sister, Miss Mary E. Kearney, all of Ann Arbor. Another son, Thomas Kearney Tuomy, died Dec. 12, 1918.
Funeral services will be held at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning in St. Thomas Catholic church with burial in St. Thomas cemetery. Friends may call at the residence.
