The remains of Miss May Stearns, who died in Detroit last Thursday, the 4th inst., of pneumonia, following diphtheria, arrived here for interment on the noon train on Saturday.

The procession proceeded at once to Bayview Cemetery, where in the presence of a few friends burial took place, the Rev. J. A. Bloodsworth officiating.

Miss Stearns was the youngest daughter of the late J. A. and Mrs. Stearns, whose names and personality are still spoken of with great respect by very many in this village and vicinity.

The deceased was born in Port Rowan where her early life was spent, but of late years she had lived in Walkerville.

She graduated as a trained nurse, and was engaged in that calling in Detroit when she died.

She leaves to mourn her loss one brother, W. C. Stearns of this village and two sisters, Rose, Mrs. Doan, and Ida, Mrs. (Dr.) Stewart of Walkerville. 

The remains were accompanied here by the deceased's nephew, John Doan, and Alex. MacIntosh of Walkerville. 

Her brother also came from Copper Cliff, where he was visiting.
