Mrs. Finley Buried Shelburn Sunday

Mrs. Sarah Jane Finley, 88, was found dead by neighbors at her home in Shelburn early Friday morning. Mrs. Finley lived alone and it is believed death took place a few hours prior to 7 o'clock. Indications were that she had started for bed and was overcome by a sudden heart attack, passing away without a struggle. Burial was in Miller Cemetery near Shelburn following services at the Shelburn Church at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon.

Mrs. Finley had lived many years in this part of Oregon, coming here from Missouri in 1900. Her husband Jasper Finley, preceded her in death in 1930. They lived at Cottage Grove for several years. She was a member of the Baptist Church. Survivors in this locality include a son, Gilbert Finley, residing near Stayton, and two daughters, Mrs. Iva Spear and Mrs. James Trollinger. The N. C. Lowe mortuary of Scio and Lebanon was in charge as funeral directors.
