From The Bellingham Herald, 14 Jul 1920:
MRS. J. M. DARLING, PIONEER OF CITY, SUMMONED
Mrs. J. M. Darling, one of the most esteemed pioneers of Bellingham bay, died at
St. Joseph's hospital at 5 o'clock this morning at the age of 84 years. She
resided at 925 Twelfth street and had been at the hospital less than a week.
Mrs. Darling was one of the leading women of the bay during its early days. She
came here thirty or more years ago and, with her husband, took a prominent part
socially and civically. Mr. Darling died about six years ago. Mrs. Darling was a
charter member of St. Paul's Episcopal church and belonged to the W. C. T. U.
and the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The survivors are two sons, Dwight, of Everett, and Captain Charles A. Darling,
commander of a steamship running to the Orient. The captain is somewhere in
Eastern waters now. One grandchild, Miss Dorothy Darling, daughter of Dwight
Darling, also survives. The funeral may be held next Friday, but arrangements
will not be complete until after the arrival of Mrs. Charles A. Darling from
Spokane tomorrow noon. The body is in charge of Harry O. Bingham.
