DEATH OF SENORITA DIAZ.
-----
The Mexican Nurse at the Presbyterian Hospital Dies After Short Illness-The Story of Her Life-She Came Here to be a Trained Nurse.

At the Presbyterian Hospital yesterday evening at 7:30 o'clock, Senorita Geneveva Diaz, a Mexican nurse, died after an illness of two weeks. More that two years ago this young woman came to the Presbyterian Hospital to equip herself as a trained nurse, intending at the close of her course of training to return to her home. Her girlhood days were spent in the City of Mexico. Her people are Roman Catholics, but when about 12 years of age she united with the Presbyterian Church. Her remains were taken last night to Tenth Avenue Presbyterian church where this evening at 6:30 o'clock, the funeral service will be conducted by Rev. A.R. Shaw assisted by the Presbyterian pastors of the city. The hospital staff of physicians serve as active pall-bearers. The trustees of the hospital will be honorary pall-bearers. The nurses will attend in a body.

The interment will be in Elmwood Cemetery. The announcement of the death of this noble young woman will cause genuine grief in many hearts. She was universally popular and greatly beloved. Her gentle disposition and self-sacrificing service endeared her to all who came within the circle of her sweet Christian influence. Loving hands will place a flower on her grave.

To the nurses, physicians and trustees of the hospital as well as to the many patients who have received her gentle, kindly ministrations, her unselfishness and earnest devotion to duty will be both an inspiration and a precious legacy.
