Obituary - Marie L. Bouchet

Old Cairo resident Laid to Rest at Beech Grove

Funeral services over the last remains of Mrs. Marie Louise Bouchet, who passed away Sunday at noon were held this afternoon at St. Patrick’s Church, Rev. Father Downey officiating. A great number of friends, especially the older residents of Cairo, were present at the impressive ceremony, the deceased being a resident of Cairo for more than half a century and well known and beloved by the many whose friendship or acquaintance she formed during that long citizenship.

Floral offerings, beautiful and numbers accompanied the body to its last resting place. The solemn procession left the residence, 813 Cedar4 Street, at 1:30 o’clock for the church, where services were held at 2:00 o’clock.
An interurban special left the corner at Ninth and Washington Avenue, at 2:30 o’clock for Mounds, where interment took place at Beech Grove Cemetery.
