FORMER RESIDENT PASSES Mrs. Frank J. Wattenpaugh of 721 West 96th street, Los Angeles, answer- ed the call of her Maker at 12:10 a. m., June 4th~--She passed calmly on to the land from whence she came. Mrs. Watenpaugh was well known and greatly beloved on Catalina Is- land, where she lived for many years. A woman of charming personality, and many sterling qualities, she leaves to mourn her loss many loyal friends, whose sincere sympathy is extended to her husband and her sister, Mrs. H. P. Vedder of Avalon. Although ailing for the past two years, she apparently was gaining in health and strength when the end came. The high esteem in which she was held by all was evidenced by the pro- fusion of beautiful floral offerings. Life is joy, and love is power. Death all fetters doth unbind; Strength and wisdom only flower When they toil for all our kind. Hope is truth. The future giveth More than present takes away, And the soul forever liveth Nearer God, from day to day. CARD OF THANKS We wish to express .to our friends in Avalon our sincere thanks for the many evidences of sympathy shown by them since the recent death of wife and sister, and for the beautiful flor- al pieces sent to the interment. Frank J. Wattenpaugh.~ Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Veeder.
