"DR. GRACE BULLAS DIED EARLY TODAY"
"Prominent Biloxi Osteopath Passed Away at the Riveria - Burial Here Tomorrow"
"Dr. Grace E. Bullas, the well known osteopath, who numbered her friends among all who came in contact with her in social and professional life on the coast, died at the Riveria Hotel this morning at 6:10 o'clock, after an illness of about two weeks. She was surrounded by the most competent physicians, nurses and loving friends,who spared no effort to save the usefull life of this most estimable woman. Dr. Bullas returned from a trip to Chicago and Colorado two weeks ago, and became ill soon after reaching Biloxi, and for the past week her condition has greatly alarmed her friends, being very critical all of yesterday, only slight hope being entertained for her recovery. Her mother, Mrs. Jarmyn lives in Petosky, Michigan. Dr. Bullas loved the coast, particularly Biloxi, and expressed a wish to be buried here. A private funeral will take place from the residence of Mrs. Campbell on Seal avenue, tomorrow at 4 o'clock p.m., unless a change should later be decided upon. A great funeral train would undoubtedly follow this good woman, whose kindheartedness, cheerfulness, sincerity and unaffected charity won all, did not the epidemic conditions prevent. Dr. Bullas was born February 6, 1873, at Sheffield, England, and came to America on the vessel "Erin" October 1, 1882, landing in New York. On February 18, 1918, she was naturalized in the federal court in Biloxi, where she has lived since she came to this state January 9, 1903."

"BURIAL OF DR. BULLAS"
"Saturday afternoon witnessed a ceremony, entirely unexpected two weeks ago, in the last sad rites administered by the allowable member of close friends to the mortal remains of Dr. Grace E. Bullas at the beautiful Biloxi cemetery. The funeral services began with a prayer at the home of Mrs. Mae Campbell on Seal avenue, where the body of the much lamented deceased was viewed before the final obsequies, and ended at the grave which now contains it. The remarks by Rev. John Campbell, her beloved pastor, were a fitting tribute to her well-known attributes and character, and found affirmation in the hearts of those who knew her most intimately. One who was unable to attend probably knew her best, but the deceased in her life-time fully felt and appreciated the devotion of Mrs. Campbell. The beauty and profusion of floral tributes were a reminder of the thoughtfulness of a host of friends and completed obscured the grave. The pall beareres, all great admires and personal friends of the deceased, were Frank W. Achorn, Ross Elmer, C. S. Brown, H. H. Roof, W. W. Dwyer and Geo. P. Money."
Grace died from influenza.
