Mrs. Mary S. Havner, who for
tin! past two years has been an
inmate at the stale hospital for
the insane at Lincoln, passed
away at that institution Saturday
afternoon, after a lingering ill
ness. Ihe body was brought to
this city this afternoon on No. 24,
and the casket was taken direct
from the station to Oak Hill ceme
tery, where interment was made.
Mrs. Havner was about C8 years
of age and resided here for sev
eral years, keeping house for her
brother, the late William Sayles,
at his farm, a few miles south of
Ihe cily. The killing of her
brother proved to be too great a
shock to her and it became neces
sary lo send her lo the hospital
for treatment, but she never re
gained her health, and gradually
became more feeble until death
finally relieved her of her suffer
ing. The services at tho cemetery
were conducted by Rev. D. L. Dun-klebergc-r
of the Christian church.
The or.ly known relative of Mrs.
Havner is a sister in New York,
who is past. 80 years of age and
was unable to attend the funeral.
