Mrs. BORONDA Passes At Extreme Old Age
The death last Saturday evening of Mrs. Juana BORONDA removed another of Monterey county's old pioneer women. The deceased was the widow of Francisco BORONDA who was widely known in this section in the early days and was a member of one of the most influential of the former old time
Spanish families. Mrs. BORONDA was born in Los Angeles, but the greater part of her long life had been passed here in Monterey county. Her exact age is shrouded in considerable doubt. In the death certificate it is given as 97, but relatives arriving here from Los Angeles say the records of one of the old parish Mission churches of that city show she was baptized there 111 years ago. That she was extremely old cannot be questioned, as she well remembered many of the thrilling times of the
early history of state long before the American occupation. Mrs. BORONDA's death occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Joe LOVINSEN. She had been ill but a short time. A severe cold contracted a week ago proved too much for her feeble condition and resulted fatally.
Seven children survive the esteemed old pioneer. Besides Mrs. LEVINSON, they are: Mrs. George WOODHECK [very questionable -- extremely faded, with lines going through] of Los Angeles, Mrs. M. _____ of King City, Mrs. Ron CAMPBELL of Oakland, Peter BORONDA of Salinas, A. M. BORONDA of Jolon and Jacob BORONDA of King City.
The funeral will be from the LEVINSON home, 215 Monterey street, at 9
o'clock tomorrow morning. Mass at the Sacred Heart church at 9:30.
Interment in IOOF cemetery. (Old Calvary)
