MISS TREMBATH DIES AT KINGSTON
Miss Elizabeth A. Trembath, only daughter of Attorney and Mrs. William J. Trembath, of Kingston, Pa., died this morning of pneumonia. She was a young woman endowed with extraordinary ability, strength of character and charm of mind and person. She was born in Kingston March 4, 1895, graduated from the Kingston High School in 1912 and for two years thereafter was assistant to Professor Welter in the chemical laboratory of Wilkes-Barre High School.
In 1914 she entered State College and graduated as a chemist, with high honor, in June 1917. Immediately she was employed by the Heintz Company of Pittsburgh in their research laboratory. At the beginning of the war, she was requested to enter the chemical department of the Atlas Powder Company at Tamaqua, Pa., and was put in charge of testing the fulminate of mercury, a position requiring a high degree of skill. At the end of the war, she was engaged by Roesller & Haslarber Company, manufacturing chemists of Perth Amboy N. J., as a process chemist in their bleaching department.
For the last year she was engaged in research work for that company. For one so young she had achieved unusual distinction in research work as a chemist. In addition to her parents, she leaves to survive her four brothers, Wayne, who is professor of English in the Normal School at Lock Haven, Pa.; Nathaniel, just returned from England; Karl, assistant manager of the Woolworth Company at Camden, N. J.; and Robert, a student at Lafayette College. As yet no funeral arrangements have been made.
