Oakland Tribune (Oakland, California)
October 25, 1920 (Monday)


Funeral services were held this afternoon for Mrs. Sarah T. Dow, pioneer Oakland resident, from the home of her daughter, Mrs. E.D[avid] Yorker [Elizabeth Dow], 1811 Harrison Boulevard, where she died Saturday night [October 23], following an illness of three days. Mrs. Dow has been in failing health for some months. Besides Mrs. Yorker, she is survived by a second daughter, Mrs. Gordon M. Stolp [Rebecca Dow].

For more than 30 years Mrs. Dow has made her home in this city, taking a prominent part in church and philanthropic movements. She was one of the oldest memebers in the First Methodist Episcopal church and a former director of the Young Woman's Christian Association. Mrs. Dow was born in Walden, Mass., 87 years ago.

The funeral services today were conducted by Rev. J. W. Stephens, pastor of the First Methodist church. Acting as pallbearers were four pioneer members, C. W. Kinsey, James A. Johnson, J.C. Hill and J. R. Scupbani [?]." END
