W. C. BOOTH Dies After Long Illness
William C. Booth, Marin resident for more than 30 years, died at a local hospital yesterday following an illness of several years. He was born in Tennessee 77 years ago.
Booth lived at 110 Sycamore avenue with his wife, Mrs. Mollie H. Booth, and was active in the book binding business until his retirement about eight yeas ago because of ill health.
He came to San Francisco from the northwest in about 1900, and was very active in the formation and progress of the Bookbinders and Bindery Women’s Union Local 31-125, having served as business representative of the union for many years.
In 1922 he purchased the Thumler-Rutherford bookbindery in San Francisco, and operated that business until his retirement.
Surviving him, in addition to his widow, is a brother, Harry T. Booth.
Funeral services will be held at the Jenness Chapel of the Hills at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Burial will be private.
