F. Angellotti Funeral Rite Will Be Held Here Thursday
Masons Will Conduct Service For Pioneer Marin Jurist

The Marin County Superior Court adjourned today at noon out of respect to the memory of Judge Frank M. Angellotti, former chief justice of the State Supreme Court and prior to that superior judge in Marin County. The motion to adjourn was made by Senators George B. Keane and Ralph Starke at the close of the morning session. The motion was granted by Judge Edward I. Butler, who paid a glowing tribute to the memory of the late jurist.

Stricken Saturday
Following funeral service for Judge Angellotti, which will be held in San Francisco tomorrow afternoon, the remains will be brought to San Rafael and the Marin Lodge No. 191 F & AM, will complete the services at the receiving vault at Mt. Tamalpais Cemetery at 3:30 p.m. The interment will take place at the cemetery.

Judge Angellotti was stricken with illness Saturday in Carson City, Nevada. He returned to San Francisco, where he and his wife and daughter had apartments at Hotel Sir Francis Drake, and he died there yesterday morning.

Pioneer of Marin
Judge Angellotti was a member of a pioneer San Rafael family, his father being one of the early hotel men in the city. Judge Angellotti was born here in 1861. He attended private schools and later Lowell High School. In 1882 he was graduated from Hastings Law College and in 1883 began the practice of law in San Rafael. From 1865 to 1891 he was district attorney of the county. In the last named year he was elevated to the superior judgeship of the county. He served until 1903 when he became associate justice of the supreme court. In 1915 he became the state’s chief justice, a post which he held with much distinction until he resigned November 15, 1921, to become chief counsel for the Western Pacific Railroad. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Emma Angelotti (sic), and his daughter, Miss Marion Polk Angelotti (sic).
