This is Johanna Ryan Shea.  She was my maternal grandmother. 
The photo was probably taken around 1890 either in Chicago 
or Cohoes NY

Additional Comments:
Johanna Ryan Shea was born in 1868 to Patrick and Mary 
(Fahy-Fahey) Ryan in Co. Tipperary, possibly in Kilpatrick 
townland.  She married John Shea in Chicago in 1893, and 
moved to Cohoes NY after his death in 1895 due to a cave-in 
while working on the Chicago sewer system.  She died in 
Cohoes in 1906.
