McHenry County Undersheriff Andy Zinke says the woman, clad in nightgown and shoes, apparently died of exposure to the cold and may have had dementia.

She was found on the 11500 block of Hemmer Road and transported to Sherman Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, coroner's officials said.

Zinke says it's important to check on elderly family members during cold weather.
