A Good Woman Passes Away

1906 November 19, Sacramento Union, Redding, Nov 18 - Miss Mary Christison, Long a Resident of Redding, Died Friday at Her Home in Igo, Shasta County. - Miss Mary Christison, long a resident of Redding, died Friday afternoon in Igo at the home of her aunt, Mrs. C.H. Stevens. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Colin Christison.

Miss Christison was a pupil in the high school when it first started, and lived with Mrs. E. G. Logan, who has always stood as another parent to her. After completing her high school work she took up nursing as a profession, and it was while serving her term of probation in San Francisco that she contracted the disease which resulted in her death. She was in charge of a very serious case, and not liking to leave her patient for a moment, lay down upon the bare floor for her rest. As a result she caught a severe cold which settled on her lungs and developed into tuberculosis.

Miss Christison was a patient sufferer, and though she knew her chances for recovery were slight, when she was sent home for treatment she was never known to repine or rebel against her fate. She was 24 years of age at the time of her death and leaves a large circle of friends to mourn her departure.

The funeral took place this morning from her home at Gas Point, and the body was interred in the plot where several children of the family have preceded.~
