RENA BROOKS - Obituary

Rena Brooks

The East Liverpool Tribune

Rena Brooks, the 11 year old daughter of Jay Brooks, of Fawcett street, who was badly burned Wednesday morning while playing around a bon fire, died at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon (Aug. 30, 1906), the death angel coming as a peaceful messenger to relieve her terrible sufferings.

The child was frightfully burned about all parts of the body and it was known from the first that there was no hope for recovery.

Rena was a bright little girl and had many playmates who are deeply grieved by her death. She was a member of the First Baptist church Sunday School and was beloved by both teachers and scholars.

The funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home, the Rev. H. H. Bawden officiating. Burial will be made in Riverview cemetery.
