Death Claims



Mrs. Carroll Hemingray McAbee, prominent Muncie clubwoman, died unexpectedly early Wednesday morning in Cocoa, Fla., where she and her husband, Philip W. McAbee, were spending the winter.

She died quietly in her sleep, friends here learned. She had been in poor health for several years and death was believed to have resulted from a heart condition.

Mr. and Mrs. Abee [sic] McAbee had been in Florida since October. Mrs. Gladys W. Rose the widow of Frederick D. Rose, Muncie banker, was visiting Mrs. Abee [sic] McAbee when she died.

Mrs. McAbee was the daughter of Ralph Hemingray, glass manufacturer. She was married in April, 1907, and she and Mr. McAbee had made their residence in Muncie since that date, except for a period of nine years when they lived in Cleveland. The family home is at 824 East Washington street.

Mrs. McAbee's stepmother, Mrs. Eva Hemingray, died here last week. Mr. McAbee is the only survivor. Miss. Lewellen [sic] Llewellyn Hemingray, a sister, died in Covington., Ky. several years ago.

Mrs. McAbee was a member of the Art Students League, the Conversation Club and the Delaware Country Club.

Funeral services will be conducted by the Rev. C. Russell Moodey at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon in the Meeks mortuary. Friends may call at the mortuary after 10 o'clock the morning of the service. The casket will not be opened. Burial will be in Beech Grove Cemetery.
