Elizabeth Gibboney
Birth: Feb. 26, 1911
Death: Dec. 13, 1916

Elizabeth Gibboney, aged 5, the Fifth ward child who was seriously burned on November 28, when her nightgown ignited from a gas heater, succumbed to her injuries last evening at 5:10 o'clock at Mercy hospital.

The little girl was admitted to the hospital and
it was believed until several days ago that she would recover. On Monday the child grew worse rapidly and sank into a comatose state yesterday, dying last evening. The mother was also painfully burned in rescuing her child.

Elizabeth Loraine Gibboney was the daughter of Adam C. and Catherine Gibboney, and was born in this city, February 26, 1911.

Her parents survive, with these brothers and sisters: George, Olive, John and Mary, all at home. The body was prepared for burial by Funeral Directors Roher & Mauk, of Juniata. Funeral service will be held at 3 o'clock this afternoon from the home of the parents and will be strictly private.

Burial will follow in Carson Valley cemetery.
