Woman Well Known In City Charitable Work, Passes Away Yesterday
Mrs. Emman H. Banks, the wife of Lyman T. Banks, former secretary of the
Seattle school board, died yesterday at the family residence, 707 West Prospect
Street. While Mrs. Banks had not been in good health for more than a year her
death came as a shock to many of her friends.
Mrs. Banks was well known in church and charitable circles, and she was very
active in that work. Prior to April 1902, at which time she suffered a stroke
of paralysis which confined her to her room ever since, she was most active in
the work of day nurseries for children whose mothers were compelled to go to
work. Mrs. Banks was much interested in the local Y.W.C.A., and organized the
midday lunches there for working girls.
Mrs. Banks had entire supervision of the arrangements for the home-coming of
the soldiers from the Philippines at the reception tendered them at the Denny.
She was general hospitaliere of the Grand Cross, and as such took an active
interest in looking after the material welfare of the sick volunteers who needed
Mrs. Banks was fifty-seven years old at the time of her death, and leaves a
husband and three daughters-Mrs. D. S. Kinney, of Roslyn; Mrs. Otis Hall, Miss
Mary Banks-and a son. Lyman T. Banks, Jr., who is eighteen years of age.
Funeral services for Mrs. Banks will take place from the residence tomorrow
afternoon at 3 o'clock. The remains will be buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
