Well Known East End Woman Succumbs After an Illness of Three Weeks

Mrs. Adallia Herbert, wife of John Herbert, died a few minutes before midnight (Mar. 27, 1906) at her home, 105 Maple Tree street, of pneumonia, after an illness of over three weeks. Her condition had been critical since Sunday, and the end while a deep shock to the family and friends was not unexpected. She was 65 years old. The funeral arrangements will be announced later.

Mrs. Herbert had resided in East End for a number of years and was very well known. She was a member of the Second Presbyterian church and took an active interest in all religious work. She was greatly devoted to her husband and family, and it is among her own kin that her departure will be most deeply felt.

Mrs. Herbert was taken ill three weeks ago last Sunday with a slight attack of grip which developed pneumonia. Physicians were in attendance constantly and did everything within their power to save her life. Sunday she has several sinking spells which exhausted the lingering spark of vitality, and it was announced then by the physicians that death might occur at any moment.

Mrs. Herbert was a member of the Order of Eastern Star and was held in high esteem by its members. Mr. Herbert, the bereaved husband, is a well known Mason, and holds a responsible position at plant No. 3, of the Homer Laughlin China company.

Besides the husband, the following children survive; Porter, Lena, Harry, Edward, Mrs. Della McGee and Florence of this city, and Charles, of East Palestine. One brother Samuel Marker, of New Brownsville, Pa., and one sister, Mrs. Dora Mahi, of Shippensville, Pa., also survive.
