Death Claims Miss M. Rowley
Former Well Known Port Huron Girl Passes Away in Minneapolis
Word was received in this city on Sunday by Mrs. Frank Simpson [Isabelle Rowley] of the death of her sister, Miss Maude Rowley, which occurred Saturday night in Minneapolis of Bright’s disease.
Miss Rowley was born in Port Huron, where she lived until two years ago, when she moved to Minneapolis with her mother and brothers. She was a graduate of the Port Huron high school and for several years was a member of the First congregational church choir, being one of the soloists. Her life had been one of love, sacrifice, and service that endeared her to all who knew her and her passing will be regretted by a wide circle of friends.
Her mother, Mrs. Charles M. Rowley [Minnie Augusta Baker]; two brothers, Bruce and Charles Rowley of Minneapolis and one sister, Mrs. Frank Simpson of the city survives Miss Rowley. The remains will be brought to Port Huron for internment and the funeral announcement will be made later.
[Treehouse's Note: Bright’s disease is now a vague and obsolete term for the disease of the kidneys that today would be described as acute or chronic nephritis.]
