The Funeral Of The Late Mrs. Dr. C.V. Petteys
The funeral services of the late Mrs. Dr. Petteys, wife of Acting Assistant Surgeon C.V. Petteys, United States Army, were solemnized yesterday morning at the residence of Mrs. C.E. Whipple, the Rev. H.B. Restarick, rector of Holy Trinity Church, officiating. We were painfully aware, when called upon to chronicle this lady’s death, that the announcement would bring distress to many in this city, as well as elsewhere; but we were not prepared for the general outburst of sympathy and sorrow that yesterday found vent in offerings of flowers and grief-stricken attendance at the last sad rites. The floral decorations of the parlors, where the services were held, was unusually profuse and very graceful; while the handsome casket wherein the body reposed was almost hidden by the quantities of delicate emblems wrought in rare flowers, all of them of exceeding beauty, many of them the handiwork of affectionate friends. The solemn Episcopal ritual for the dead was begun by the chanting of I am the Resurrection and the Life, rendered by Mrs. Restarick, Mrs. H.A. Chase, Messrs. H.A. and W.F. Chase. During the ceremonial, which included the chanting of I heard a voice from Heaven the anthem Lord, let me know my end, and the hymn Asleep in Jesus, were also sung by the same quartette with much feeling. The entire service was beautifully rendered and there were few in the large congregation who were not visibly affected as it pathetically closed with the singing of
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.


Those present were then given an opportunity of looking for the last time on the young wife and mother who had so endeared herself to all who knew her; resting in a natural posture, a favorite flower in her hand and with exquisite drapery, the work of loving fingers, shrouding her form – few will forget the picture. It being the intention to convey the remains East, the ceremonies were concluded at the residence, the body being followed to its temporary resting place by the bereaved husband and the following gentlemen, who acted as pall-bearers: Captain F.A. Whitney, 8th Infantry; Captain J.C. White, 1st Artillery; First Lieutenant J.W. Powell, 8th Infantry; First Lieutenant R.H. Fletcher, 21st Infantry; First Lieutenant J. McE. Hyde, 8th Infantry; First Lieutenant Robert Hanna, 6th Cavalry – all of whom were in full uniform – Mr. Victor Krote and Mr. Joseph Winchester, of this city.

The funeral of the late Mrs. Ettie Carpenter Petteys transpired last Friday at the residence of Mrs. Whipple, on Tenth Street. Shortly after 11:30, the hour named, a large number of friends arrived. The solemn and impressive services of the Episcopal Church were rendered by the Rev. H.B. Restarick and the choir, consisting of Mrs. Restarick, Mrs. H.A. Chase and Herbert A. Chase, sang the following, Mr. Waldo F. Chase presiding at the organ: Chant, I am the Resurrection and Life, another, Lord, Let Me Know My End, hymn, Asleep in Jesus, chant, Abide With Me. The floral decorations were beautiful and arrayed in a tasteful manner, offerings of many friends. It was the saddest occasion experienced in this city for some time, as all felt deeply for Dr. C.V. Petteys and his babe, only three weeks old. The pall-bearers were: Captain F.A. Whitney, Captain J.C. White, First Lieutenant J.W. Powell, Lieutenant J. McE. Hyde, Lieutenant R. Hanna, Joseph Winchester and P. Krote. The remains were taken to the funeral rooms of John Gray, on H Street, to be embalmed and then shipped to Washington for interment.
