THE MINING REGION NEWS - FROSTBURG - The funeral of Mrs. Michael Rafferty, whose death at the hospital in Baltimore was noted in a recent issue, occurred yesterday morning at nine o'clock from St. Michael's Catholic church of which Mrs. Rafferty was a devoted member during her life time. Father S. J. Clark, assisted by Father Joseph Nolan, celebrated mass and conducted the services, paying a beautiful tribute to the departed lady's past life. At the conclusion of the beautiful Catholic ritual, the funeral cortege proceeded to St. Michael's Catholic cemetery on Mt. Pleasant street, where interment of the remains was made in the family burying plot. The deceased was about thirty-three years of age and leaves a husband and several small children to mourn the loss of a kind and loving mother and wife. Mrs. Rafferty's death is doubly sad, as she was only sick a short while, having been taken ill while attending church Sunday morning, from which she grew steadily worse until it was necessary to send her to the hospital. Mrs. Rafferty was formerly Miss Lyons and is survived by her mother, Mollie Lyons and the following brothers: Messrs. William, Charley, John and George Lyons, all residing at this place. A large concourse of people attended the burial of the deceased here on Wednesday morning. The floral offerings were among the most beautiful and numerous ever seen at a funeral in this city. Many friends and relatives of the deceased attended the funeral from out of town. The Evening Times, Cumberland, MD, Thursday, December 28, 1905, Page 3
