SUMMONED TO REST.
Miss Nellie Pardee Succumbs to Her Severe Illness.
Her Interest in the Estate Now Passes to Her Brother
Miss Nellie Pardee, daughter of the late Dr. E. H. Pardee, expired this morning at 5 o'clock, after a lingering illness. She was confined to her bed for the past month and her life had been despaired of several times. She would bravely rally from each relapse though, and at one time it seemed probable that she would recover. She was suffering from gastric fever and during the past fortnight many complications of her disease became apparent. Death resulted from internal hemorrhage.
The deceased was a little over fifteen years of age and was always considered a delicate child. The recent death of her father caused her grievous sorrow and her mourning for him had a disastrous effect on her physical condition.
Miss Nellie Pardee was born at the old Pardee home, June 21, 1881, and was the only child resulting from the second marriage of the late Dr. E. H. Pardee, who had one son, George Pardee, by a previous marriage. Her father's prominent position and the large income from his lucrative practice permitted the child to be surrounded by luxuries. Every effort was made to overcome a naturally delicate condition and with such success that Nellie never endured any serious illness until the last fatal complaint. She was naturally a bright studious girl, but she was not allowed to take a full course of study as it was believed that fresh air and sunshine would be of more benefit to her than books. At the time of her illness she was pursuing a special course in the Oakland High School. The father and mother were devoted to their daughter and when death separated father and child the blow was a keen one to the young girl.
The mother was wrapped up in her child's welfare and during the long illness rarely left her bedside. Her anguish at the loss of her child has completely prostrated her.
The services which will be held over the remains of the deceased will be very quiet and simple. Friday at 2 p.m. friends are requested to assemble at the Pardee home on Castro and Eleventh streets, when the Rev. J. K. McLean, D.D., will conduct the last services for the dead.
