The Daily Telegram., September 03, 1912
The funeral of Mrs. Maria Lewis, widow of Charles S. Lewis, a prominent citizen in his lifetime, will be held in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Emma Jackson, on West Pike street at 4 o’clock Wednesday afternoon and the interment will be at the Odd Fellows’ cemetery.
Mrs. Lewis died Monday morning at 11 o’clock in the home of her daughter at 79 years of age lacking a few days. She was a daughter of John Patton, a pioneer resident of the city now deceased. The last several years she was an invalid and a fall three years ago increased her physical feebleness, as one of her hips was fractured by the fall.
Attorney George C. Lewis, of Pittsburg, a son, and her daughter, Mrs. Jackson, survive her. Mrs. Lewis’s son and daughter were both at her bedside when she died. Her husband died thirty four years ago.
Mrs. Maria Lewis possessed a charming personality and was a woman of culture. She had a host of friends who are made sad by her death.
