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.
The services were conducted at St. Ann's Catholic Church Father O'Driscoll officiated.

The subject of this brief sketch, was one of Carthage's most estimable young ladies. She was born in this city on July 10, 1890 which would makeher age about 16 years old and 8 months. She has always lived here and was well known and universally liked among a wide circle of acquaintances. She was attending the high school, and all her class mates share with her relatives the grief occasioned by her death
