Just days before her death, Catherine Schoettgen Bannister's health was showing signs of improvement and it was thought she would recover. However, Catherine Ann passed away Sunday morning at 10:30.

Catherine Ann was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Joseph Schoettgen, pioneer residents of Columbia, where she was born and raised.

As an adult, Catherine Ann moved to Sonora where she clerked at the E. L. Rehm store. She returned to Columbia when she married the late William Dennison Bannister, a widower and one of the owners of the Columbia Marble quarry.

The funeral was held from the home of her niece, Mrs. Jack Grant, on Tuesday afternoon. Burial was in the Columbia Odd Fellows section of the Columbia cemetery. The Reverend B. W. Pearce officiated.

Mrs. Bannister was a member of the Gold Nugget Rebekah Lodge No. 313 under the auspices of which the services were held.

Mrs. Bannister was survived by a brother, Frank J. Schoettgen, a sister, Mrs. Louise Napoleon, both of Columbia, and several nieces and nephews.
