Alice Fitzgerald: My great grandmother

This is my great grandmother, Alice Laura Fitzgerald Lyon. She was mother to Velma Emily Lyon, my beloved grandmother and Betty Lyon Gaye, my great aunt. She was married to my dad's grandfather, Papa Steve. Alice had that mad Irish blood, I guess, some of which I think I may have also inherited. She was the daughter of Tobias Fitzgerald and Emma Balzell. She died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound. She spent most of her life in Logansport, Indiana.
