Mrs. William Barr
Private funeral services were held last Saturday at Keatonís Mortuary for Mrs. Amelia J. Barr, well known and liked San Rafael matron, who passed away last Thursday after a brief illness which ended a long period of ill health.
Mrs. Barr, widow of the late William Barr, who served for many years as a member of the Marin Board of Supervisors representing the San Rafael area, is survived by three sons, Supervisor William Barr, Robert J. Barr and John. She was the mother of the late Dr. T. I. C. Barr, Dr. Arthur Barr, Agnes Dollar and Alice Ferguson.
Born 84 years ago in Canada, Mrs. Barr came to San Rafael as a young woman and many of the cityís improvements were watched by her as projects of her husband and later of her son, who succeeded his father as supervisor.
