Following a Friend to Death

Would you follow your friend to death? Elizabeth Stevenson did during the funeral of her friend’s, Margaret Jerome Healy.

By Margaret’s open grave, as the last few words of the funeral service was being said, Elizabeth passed away: “Mrs. Stevenson’s heart, which has been weak, was unable to stand the tension of emotion and dropped quietly.”

The Hawaiian Gazette wrote about Elizabeth’s death in “Dies Beside Open Grave…” “Read more about it!”
