NOBLE WOMAN CALLED
TO HER FINAL REWARD
After an illness of only a brief period, Mrs. John Broderick, nee Miss Mary Miles, died last night. The
funeral will leave the house, 1327 Mary Street tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock and the remains will be taken to
the Catholic church hall where a requiem mass will be said for the repose of her soul. Rev. Father P.J. Clancy
News of Mrs. Broderick's death comes as a very great shock to hundreds of friends here, who were unaware
that her illness had even reached the critical point. She was given all the attention that love and devotion could
suggest, her slightest request being looked after with the most assidous care by loved ones and trained nurses.
Mrs. Broderick's death removes from the activities of life a truly good woman, one of noble virtues and attainments.
She was a devout Catholic, faithful and conscientious in the performance of every religious practice imposed
upon her, being scrupulously exact in this respect.
She was a devoted wife and daughter, making home an ideal place for those whom she loved best. To her
neighbors and friends she was the embodiment of sympathetic kindness, rendering to each the fullest measure
of assistance when her services were required. Modest and quiet in her every act, caring naught for praise or
worldly emoluments, her life was truly worthy of emulation.
During her brief but painful illness she bore her sufferings with uncomplaining fortitude, and she passed
away while yet in the prime of life, adored and comforted with all the consolations of religion she practived
with such unswerving fidelity, such unchanging loyalty.
Besides the grief stricken husband, the deceased is survived by her mother, Mrs. Rosa Miles and four sisters,
Miss Rosa Miles, Mrs. J.T. Childress, Mrs. H.L. Smith, and Mrs. Kate Wood. To each of these the heartfelt
sympathy of friends is most sincerely proffered.
