Services Held for Mrs. C. Cameron Rev. Fr. O'Hara Says Requiem Mass for Young Mother, Accident Victim:

Seldom has the community been so prostrated with sorrow, as by the untimely passing of Mrs. Cardinal Cameron, Sunday morning.St. Jerome's Catholic Church was filled Tuesday morning, with friends and relatives, who came to pay their last respect to her memory and to show their sympathy for those left to mourn.Rev. Edward O'Hara, rector of St. Jerome's read the Requiem Mass, assisted by the choir.

In his sermon Father O'Hara spoke of the mass, as he compared the solace and comfort offered in the service of the Mother Church to that of the mother, who takes her child into her arms and comforts it when pain or hurt comes. He dwelt especially on the beautiful words of the opening of the Mass and the closing, "May her soul rest in peace and may everlasting light shine upon her."

Pall bearers were Robert, Gerald and Stuart Cameron, Joseph McGuire, Louis Rohrmoser and Archie Conrad, brothers and brothers-in-law of Mr. Cameron.

Interment was made in Riverside Cemetery.

Among those who came for the service were Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Cameron and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cameron of Muskegon, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph McGuire of Clare, Mr. and Mrs. (continued on page 7) Albert Baynton and son Ronald of Ann Arbor, Mrs. Beulah Newman of Perrinton, and Mr. and Mrs. George McKenzie of Grand Haven.

The passing of Mrs. Cameron closes not only these years of happiness with her husband, but also a close friendship which began when both were little folks in school. They were childhood chums, attending the same classes, graduating together from the Custer high school, and later marrying and establishing their own home which has been most happy.

While still a small child Mrs. Cameron was active in the Brethren church of south Custer, her music ability causing her to be called on for many occasions, and she always willingly responded. At her marriage she joined the church which her husband attended, and in this work had also devoted herself as wholeheartedly to the furthering cause of her Lord and Master.

In addition to the husband and little daughter, her mother, Mrs. Mabel McKenzie and a sister and brother, she is also survived by her aged grandfather, William Saxton, to whom death of a favorite grandchild comes as a hard blow. Mr. Saxton became quite ill Tuesday morning and was unable to be present at the funeral service.

And so on the day which would have been her twenty-seventh birthday anniversary, and for which plans had been made to make it a happy occasion, she was laid to rest, clouding with grief and sorrow, the hearts and lives of all who knew her.
