Mrs. Sarah Charity Clay Standley died at the residence of Mrs. Jim Jamison Monday afternoon. The funeral was held from the South Methodist church Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Moore preaching the funeral sermon. A large concourse of mourners followed the remains of one of Mendocino county's most highly respected women to their last resting place.

Mrs. Standley was born in Keithsville[sic], Mo., Aug. 29, 1851, and crossed the plains with her parents and located in Manchester in 1859. She was married to the late J. M. Standley in September, 1868. The children surviving her are: Mrs. J.A. Jamison, Jr., Mrs. E.B. Gibson, Mrs. L.M. Hildreth and Lieut. Hal Standley.

Four sisters and four brothers also survive her: Mrs. Isaac Crispin, Mrs. Joseph Bishop, Mrs. Henry Bowen, Mrs. William Lynch, W.B. Clay, Harris Clay, Charles Clay and Dr. Louis Clay.

Mrs. Standley was highly regarded by her many friends and had won a place in the hearts of those who knew her by her tender manner and kindly ways. The floral tributes were profuse and beautiful and a silent testimonial of the regard in which she was held.
