Mrs. Caroline G. Bennewitz, 68 years old, a resident here for twenty-seven years, died at a local hospital early Sunday morning after an illness lasting three years. She had been confined to her bed at the hospital for five weeks.

Keyser of the Virgin Islands, where her husband is United States attorney. Three brothers, Joseph F. Smith of Omaha, George Smith of Frankfort, Ind., and John A. Smith of Indianapolis, Ind., and two sisters, Mrs. Sophia C. Aveline of Portland, Ore., and Mrs. S. Spitznagle of Council Bluffs, also survive.

The funeral will be Tuesday, at 8:30 from the house and 9 o'clock from St. Cecilia's cathedral. Burial will be at Holy Sepulchre.
