Funeral Notice

Mary O'Toole Callen

What follows is transcribed from a clipping from the Anaconda Standard, a newspaper from Montana which published from 1889-1970. The date has been mostly clipped away, but "Saturday morning, Ma..." may be clearly read, so the date was March 17, 1956. It concerns Mary (O'Toole) Callen's death and burial. Mary died March 13, 1956. Written on the clipping in pencil is "you can send this back to me please, Aunt Nina."
