Mrs. Julia L. Rohrer, wife of John W. Rohrer, passed away suddenly at home on Union avenue Monday morning at two o'clock. The end came so swiftly and unexpectedly that the family and a large circle of friends were overwhelmed. Seized with an attack of asthma with which she had been a sufferer, Mrs. Rohrer went to the medicine cabinet and secured what she thought was the remedy she was accustomed to use. Instead, however, it proved to be a bottle containing Lysol, a powerful disinfectant. The mistake was not discovered until too late. When found on the bathroom floor a few minutes later, Mrs. Rohrer was in an unconscious condition. Physicians were hastily summoned but upon arrival found that she was beyond all aid.
Announcement of Mrs. Robrer's death was received with expressions of deep sorrow and sincere sympathy on every hand throughout the community. Deceased was a daughter of the late M. F. Leason, Esq., was aged 36 years and was a young woman of strong personality who was held in high esteem by many friends. She was a member of the First Presbyterian church. She was also a member of the Kittanning County Club and was prominent in local social circles.
Surviving is the husband, two daughters, and two sisters: Mrs. Harry Bovard, Sharon, PA., and Mrs. Benjamin Arnold, Kittanning.
Funeral Services will be conducted at the late home on Union avenue Wednesday morning at eleven o'clock. Interment will be in the Kittanning cemetery.
