Death of Miss Needham
Miss Bessie C. Needham, daughter of Mrs. Mary Needham, passed away in San Anselmo, on Wednesday, April 17th. The funeral services will be conducted in St. Anselm’s church at nine o’clock on Friday morning and the interment will be in Holy Cross Cemetery, San Mateo.
Miss Needham had been ailing a little for several months but no anxiety was felt about her condition, and she intended to be married in June. She was taken ill on Thursday evening and died at five o’clock Wednesday morning. Heart trouble was the cause of death. The deceased was young, attractive and beloved, and her sudden passing away was a great shock to her family and friends.
The funeral services were conducted in St. Anselm’s church on Friday morning, Rev. Father Egan officiating. A large congregation and many beautiful floral tributes were silent evidences of the tender regard in which this lovely girl was held in the community in which she lived.
