DEATH OF MISS McNERNEY
Promising Young Life Was Ended Last Night
Funeral at 2:30 Monday Afternoon Froom St. Ann's Catholic Church - Was Ill But a Week
After being ill but a week with the dread disease cerebro-spinal meningitis, Miss Helen Katherine McNerney, the sixteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Martin McNerney, died last night at 11 o'clock at the home of her parents at 1547 South Garrison Avenue.
The death was a very sad one; and it seems doubly sad to lose one so young, and to whom life meant so much.
Just a week ago today she took her music lesson, and the next day she became violently ill, and her death followed as above stated.
Besides the parents the deceased leaves three sisters and two brothers.
Paul are of the home and
Leo McNerney lives on Lyon Street.
An aunt, Mrs. P. P. Griffin of Lockhaven, Pennsylvania is to be here for the funeral.
