From the Los Angeles Herald May 28, 1908:

LONG BEACH, May 27.—After an illness of nearly a month, Mrs. Sarah Louise Blackstone, 63 years old, died suddenly last night at her home, 424 West Fourth street, of heart failure, brought on by a paroxysm of coughing, Mrs. Blackstone, whose husband W. E. Blackstone, survives her, was greatly interested in Christian work, and, with her mother, Mrs. Adeline M. Smith, established many missionary agencies in various parts of the world. One son. James M. Blackstone, is a missionary in China. Another son, Andrew Blackstone, lives in Chicago. The funeral services will be held in Pasadena, whence Mrs. Blackstone was brought here last July, and the body will be buried in the family lot at Oak Park, Ill.
