Bree, Mabel Sly -
Mrs. Mabel Bree died April 3 at her home in Ottumwa, Iowa, at the age of thirty years. She was a poor widow lady with three children, aged 4, 7 and 9 years. She was the daughter of Jacob T. Sly of this city who had been providing for the family. Being in moderate financial circumstances himself the citizens of Clarinda raised a purse of nearly $100 to help him defray the funeral expenses. Mr. Sly now desires to return his sincere thanks to one and all who rendered him assistance in his hour of dire bereavement. Mrs. Bree was buried the following Sunday at Ottumwa, and Mr. Sly returned home last week with the three orphan children and will probably place them in an orphans' home ere long where they may receive proper care and rearing. It is indeed a sad situation. PAGE COUNTY DEMOCRAT, Clarinda, Iowa, Apr 15, 1915
