BURIAL FOR MRS. HOXIE.
The body of Mrs. Angeline HOXIE, “the umbrella mender,”
will not be given to science as she requested. Science has
not claimed the body, and friends desire a proper burial.
Mrs. HOXIE often said that there would be no one to mourn
when she died and after her death she left a will giving her
body to science. The members of the Ladies’ Social Union
of the First Presbyterian Church, where she was a member,
protested yesterday against the execution of the will and will
claim the body. A number of the members called at Long’s
undertaking rooms, where the body is lying, and stated
emphatically that as Mrs. HOXIE left sufficient money in the
bank to pay the funeral expenses that it was not at all fitting
that the body go to a medical school.
Mrs. HOXIE died Monday at Bethany Hospital.
