    Miss Herman Dead

    The Young School Teacher Passed Away Last Sunday

    The many friends of Miss Clara Herman who taught last year at District 79, two miles south of Rossville, were shocked last Monday upon receiving the news of the death of the young woman they had learned to know and esteem so much during her residence in this vicinity.

    Miss Herman was sick only a week. On Sunday, August 11th she suffered an acute attack of appendecitus [sic], and a week later--last Sunday morning--was taken to Christ hospital where it was decided that no medical aid could save her.

    Miss Herman was twenty-three years old on the day of her funeral, August 20. She was born in Topeka but lived the greater part of her life in Seabrook, near Topeka. She was graduated from Topeka High School, in 1909 and the same year began teaching. Previous to the year she taught in Rossville vicinity she taught at District No. 5 near Silver Lake where she won the friendship and love of her pupils as she did here.

    A particularly sad feature of Miss Herman's death is the fact that she expected to be married within a few months to a young man near Rossville.

    Miss Herman is mourned by everyone who had the privliege [sic] of knowing her. Her sunny disposition and gentle spirit won for her friends who will never forget her. The banks of flowers at the funeral gave mute evidence of their sorrow.

    Miss Herman is survived by her mother, Mrs. Susan Herman, three sisters, Mrs. Frank Mather, Miss Martha Herman and Miss Alberta Herman, and four brothers, Paul Claude, Matthew and Marcellus Herman.

    The funeral was held from the hone of Miss Albert Herman at 1600 College Avenue, in Topeka, Tuesday afternoon. The burial was in Mt. Hope cemetery.
