Joseph Albini Eulogized
(By one who knew him)
With the death of Joseph Albini on Tuesday, September 11, marked the passing of one of the most respected citizens of our community.
Coming to this country from Italy when yet a mere lad, he settled near Olema and Inverness Park, and though he left temporarily from time to time, this section of the country always called him back. He became a citizen of the U.S.A.
Mr. Albini often made his home with the Alberigi family, and a friendship sprang up between them that endured for over 40 years. So strong was the bond between them that Mr. Alberigi gave his lovely daughter to Joseph for his wife. Upon the sudden death of Mr. Albini, Michael Alberigi was almost prostrated.
Mr. Albini was employed by the County in road construction work, and it was while in the performance of his work that a bank of rock and earth caved in and so badly injured him, that though he lingered on for a few days, and nothing that doctors were able to do was of any avail. He could not rally from his injuries and passed quietly on, as his faithful young wife watched beside until the end.
The funeral was held under the auspices of the local Foresters and a mass was also sung at the Catholic Church.
Business was practically suspended in Pt. Reyes during the period of the funeral. The whole community far and wide turned out to pay their respect to the dead, and speak a few words of comfort to his widow. So great were the number of autos that the services of officers were required to meet a somewhat unusual situation for Pt. Reyes.
