Mrs. Collings Buried.
The funeral services of the late Elizabeth Beaumont Collings were held yesterday from her late residence in Scranton, by her pastor, Rev. H. C. Swentzel, rector of St. Luke's The pall bearers from that city were: Messrs. W. R. Storrs. G. W. Bushnell, John C. Phelps, Edward Merrifield, Paul R. Weitzel and Richard Matthews. The body was then brought to Wilkes-Barre on the L. & S. train. arriving at 3 o'clock, and conveyed to St. Stephen's where the casket was deposited in the chancel recess. Upon the casket were several beautiful floral designs, the principal one a pillow bearing the card 'Mother'. The church contained a large number of the former friends of deceased, all of whom were saddened at the melancholy duty of consigning to the tomb one who had been so prominent in Wilkes-Barre social circles and who was universally beloved. The committal service, owing to the inclement weather, was read in the church instead of at the grave—the clergy being Rev. Henry L. Jones, of St. Stephen's, and Rev. Mr. Swentzel, of Scranton. A quartet choir from St. Stephen's rendered Jesus, Lover of My Soul, I Heard a Voice from Heaven and Abide with Me. The pall bearers in Wilkes-Barre were F. J. Leavenworth, C. R. Butler, G. R. Bedford. G. B. Kulp and T. S. Hillard, and the interment was in Hollenback cemetery. There were present from Scranton John B. Collings, Esq, A. M. Winton, Esq., and wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Collings Smith, Miss Kate Winton, W. W. Winton and wife, Capt. F. Z. Steever, J. P. Dickson, Mrs. A. Hendricks, Mrs. Hines and W. H. Winton; Jacob S. Dillinger and family of Allentown; Dr. Andrew Beaumont Gloninger and Dorsey Gloninger of Lebanon. Mrs. Steever was so much fatigued after her ride from Texas that she was unable to come to Wilkes-Barre. The Scrantonians returned home at 6 p.m.
