Did Julia commit suicide at age 35? I found an old newspaper article about how John's wife, Maggie, went down to the pier and left pictures of her 2 sons in her shoes, as if she jumped in SF Bay, but the police found her later. She said the water was too cold to jump in. She was motivated by an argument with her husband and that her sister-in-law, Julia, 26 yrs old at the time, had recently tried to commit suicide. I found an obit for Julie dated several years later, but it didn't explain why she died so young.
