MRS. ROSE KANE, WIFE OF OFFICER WM. KANE, PASSES
The hand of Death last Saturday beckoned Rose Ella Kane, wife of Officer Wm. Kane, esteemed member of t he San Rafael Police Department. The last call came close to five o’clock in the afternoon at the family home on D street, when the aged wife and mother, after suffering for some years from a complication of diseases brought on by diabetes, slowly sank into unconciousness and passed into the great beyond.
Her’s was not an eventful life, in the common meaning of the word. She came to this state from Boonsborough, Iowa, when 10 years of age. The mother passed away and the older brother looked after his sister’s welfare. She married William Kane in Alameda, and during their married life, five children were reared. The home was always the center of interest. The family grew to man and womanhood, and still the home was maintained. Affliction came during the last few years, and the husband gave all his spare time and attention toward helping his life partner.
The funeral was held at the home on D street, Monday, where numerous friends and neighbors went to pay their respects to the dead and lend a helping hand to the living.
Cadets from the San Rafael Academy attended in uniform. Chief Peter O”Brien and Sergeant Paul Treanton of the Police Department; Chief Dan Schneider and James Redmond of the Fire Department; Capt. Wm. P. Knealey of the San Francisco Fire Department, and A. Coutts acted as pall bearers. The simple service at the home and the grave was conducted by Rev. Herbert Tompson, former pastor of the Presbyterian Church, and Mrs. Creswell sang.
Keaton & Dusel conducted the funeral. Interment was at Tamalpais Cemetery.
Besides the husband, the sons and daughters surviving are Mrs. Wm. Hart, Mrs. George McLaughlin, of San Rafael; Richard W. Kane, of San Francisco; Sabin D. Kane, of San Rafael, and Mrs. Otto Bodin, of Ross.
