Greenfield (Ma.) Gazette and Courier Saturday June 1, 1907 page 6 obituary

Miss Mabel A. Sears,17, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Sears of 21 West street died Wednesday after 14 weeks illness with peritonitis. Miss Sears had suffered greatly but had been very patient and cheerful.
She was a member of the sophomore class of Greenfield High school and the senior choir of Holy Trinity church and often sang in public, having a very sweet voice. She was full of life, possessed of a remarkable buoyant and sunny disposition and very many friends, being a universal favorite. She was a comely and attractive in person but her illness had so worn upon her that she was scarcely recognizable, even by her class friends during the last days of her illness except by her sunny smile and kind word which remained the same. The funeral was delayed until this morning that her young school friends might attend. It will be held at 9 o'clock at Holy Trinity church, Rev, J. M. Carroll assisted by Revs, Fathers Boland and Noonan of the Farren hospital will celebrate high mass. The burial will be in Calvary cemetery. All through her illness her friends have shown her many kindnesses and the family fully appreciate the kind acts and beautiful flowers which have been lavished upon their loved one.
