LORENA CECILIA MARTIN
The Eyes of Youth Close on Earthly Scenes
Tuesday morning funeral services were held at the Church of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel for Miss Lorena Cecilia Martin, whose death occurred at Wakefield Hospital, San Francisco, April 16. Many friends were in attendance to pay their last loving tribute to the memory of one who but a few months ago had been such a happy, light-hearted and healthy girl. Meningeal trouble brought a swift change and at fifteen and a half years Lorena slipped away leaving her bereaved parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Martin, and a sister and brother, Grace and Arthur Martin.
She was the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler Martin, pioneers of Mill Valley. Lorena had many young friends. She was social by nature and always an interested participant in school activities.
The many beautiful floral tributes were expressive of the sympathy of friends for the bereaved family. Girl schoolmates acted as bearers. Interment was at Fernwood Cemetery.
