Good woman Taken Suddenly by Death
The sudden death of Mrs. Isabell McClure at her home on D street last Monday was a sad shock to the scores of loving friends she had made in the seven years of her residence in San Rafael.
Apparently in good health early in the morning, she rose as usual to attend her daily duties, when she complained of feeling ill. At the behest of her son, Henry W. McClure, she returned to bed while he went for a physician, and upon returning the son found her near the end which came in a short time. Death was due to heart trouble from which Mrs. McClure had been suffering for several years.
Henry McClure, the son, was for some time employed at the Marin County Bank and is well known here. Mrs. McClure was a native of New Jersey and had been a resident of California for 55 years. She was a sister of Mrs. Charlotte A. Crews, Mrs. Josephine Cornell, Mrs. Margaret Brown, William H. Brokaw and Edwin Brokaw.
The funeral, directed by F. E. Sawyer, was held yesterday and burial was made in San Mateo at Mt. Olivet cemetery.
