SINCERE REGRET IN BOONVILLE

Death of Miss Pearl Ward
Not Unexpected but Brings Sadness 
to Many Friends

Boonville, NY - March 2, 1915 - Deep regret is expressed on every hand tonight at the death of Miss Pearl Ward, which occurred this afternoon at her home in Boonville. Miss Ward was one of the young ladies whom to know was to love. She was educated and graduated from the Boonville High School and had been engaged in teaching for several years. Of a quiet disposition, she was greatly attached to home and friends and made warm friends of all who came in contact with her. She had been in poor health for a long time and her death was not unexpected. She is survived by her mother, Mrs. Charles Ward and two brothers, Earl of Syracuse and Robert of Boonville, who have the sympathy of all.

 

     In a letter written shortly after Pearl's death, Earl Ward writes of his feelings at losing his sister...

"The dear girl had TB only about 10 months at the most.  A certain doctor said he never saw anyone go more rapidly with this given ailment.  Of course I was very closely attached to Pearl.  She always played with me for there were only we two children until my kid brother Robert, now 14, came.  She used to ride horseback with me, go strawberry picking in the fields about Boonville.  She would even go fishing with me.   We went to Sunday School, church and socials together - we were almost inseparable.   So naturally I miss her every minute.

She was engaged to be married in June - and all thru her sickness she never once thought but that she would recover and continued to plan with her Aunts and Uncles in Canada for her wedding trip.  Mother said it was crushingly sad to hear her tell of what she was going to do when she was married - of the places she would visit."
