MRS. JOHN HANNON AND DAUGHTER CALLED BY DEATH
The community is sympathizing with John S. Hannon, for many years Town Marshal, over the death of his daughter Margaret last Saturday and of Mrs. Katherine Hannon, his wife, who passed away Thursday night from pneumonia.
The late Mrs. Hannon was believed to have contracted the dread disease from her 10-year-old daughter. She collapsed last week, just the day before Margaret, the Hannonís only child, died.
Grief over the death of the little girl was such that the mother was unable to withstand the ravages of the dread disease.
The funeral will take place tomorrow at two oíclock from the Star of the Sea Catholic Church. Interment will be in Fernwood cemetery.
Mrs. Hannon had lived here for years and had made a wide circle of friends. Her loving disposition endeared her to those who knew her and her death is regarded as a distinct loss to Sausalito.
Margaretís funeral was held March and the services were held at Star of the Sea Church, Rev. Father Tschab officiating.
The many little friends of the little girl attended and took part in the funeral services. Beautiful and numerous floral pieces were received and the loss of this beautiful child is mourned by all. She was buried in Fernwood Cemetery.
