OBITUARY (Holbrook paper):
COMBINED FUNERAL RITES AT HOLBROOK TUESDAY MORNING
One Death Occurred in California, Other in Cedar Rapids Hospital.
Double funeral services were held Tuesday morning at St. Michael's Catholic church, Holbrook, for Mrs. James Hoy, of Merced, Calif., and John Hoy, of Cedar Rapids. The Rev. John Manning read the requiem high mass and the church choir sang the responses with Jack McGillicuddy as soloist.
It had been planned to hold services for Mrs. Hoy on Monday, but due to the late arrival of the train from California, it was decided to hold the joint service on Tuesday.
