A strange Coincidence In Death Of A Young Girl
Derry, Pa. May 8, 1913. The Skill of the staff of physicians at the Mercy Hospital, Pittsburgh, proved unavailing to save the life of Miss Mary Regina Short, of Gray Station, and she passed into the great beyond at noon yesterday. The girl who was aged 16 years and 4 months was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs Albert Short, residents of the vicinity of Gray Station. She was well known in Derry, having visited quite frequently with her sister, Mrs Charles Cullen. Some time ago her removal to the Mercy Hospital was decided upon internal trouble having developed. Three weeks ago yesterday she was operated upon and two tumors, supposedly of cancerous origin were removed. Other tumors were located which it was found impossible to remove, however. the girl gradually grew worse, until the end came at noon yesterday. One of thirteen children, she is the second of the family circle to be taken by death. An unusual fact is that the other death was that of a sister, who died at the age of sixteen years, and just sixteen years ago when the girl whose death occurred yesterday, was only a day or so old. the parents and the following brothers and sisters are left to mourn the loss of a bright and vivacious sister: Joseph S. Short, of New York City; James A. Short of New York City; Paul Short of Pittsburgh; Leonard, Leroy and Lawrence all at home; Mrs. Charles Cullen, of Derry; Mrs. H. B. Stader of Latrobe; Mrs Charles Beeler of Latrobe; Miss Fidelia and Miss Veronica at home. It is likely that the six brothers will serve as pall bearers, at the funeral, which will be held Saturday.
