Mary E. Landers
When the friends of Miss Mary E. Landers learned of her passing last Sunday morning very few of them had known that she was ill, for her illness was of such a few days’ duration. Her brother, H. J. Landers of Berkeley, with Mrs. Landers, came to be with her on Sunday. About 9 o’clock she showed a change of symptoms and passed quietly within a few minutes.
Miss Landers was born in Boston, Sept. 18, 1862. Her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Richard C. Landers, came to the United States from Nova Scotia. Beside the brother in Berkeley, she leaves a sister, Mrs. George F. Limback of Oakland, and another brother, Ed. H. Landers of Waterbury, Connecticut.
Miss Landers’ home had been in New England until nine years ago, when she came to California. During her residence here much of the time she has made her home with Miss Harriet Muzzy of Evergreen ave., a friend of many years. Miss Landers was an experienced business woman and a little less than five years ago she opened a grocery on Richardson Street in Homestead Valley. She was a woman of the highest principles and was held in deep regard by those who knew her. She was industrious, gentle and most loyal to her family and friends. She was interested in community promotion, even though business responsibilities absorbed all her energies. She was a woman of true religious faith, which she expressed quietly. To the very last her thought was of others. She had sometimes expressed the wish that she might not suffer a lingering illness, so the manner of her going was an answer to her prayer.
Funeral services were conducted in Oakland on Wednesday, Feb. 15, by a Christian Science reader.
