Funeral services for Inez Crawford Toomay, wife of the Rev. John Barron Toomay, former widely-known Ontarian and sister of Hugh H. Crawford, 205 Princeton street, who died Saturday [16 Oct] night at her home in Claremont at the age of 58 years, were conducted yesterday afternoon at the Todd Memorial Chapel, Pomona.

A native of LaPrairie, Ill., Mrs. Toomay came to California with her parents, the late Mr and Mrs. John Crawford, when she was a child of three years, the family residing for many years at A street and Central avenue. She became the wife of the Rev. Toomay when he was a pastor of Bethel Congregational church. Surviving Mrs. Toomay besides the widower and the brother here are three sons, John C. Toomay, Pomona; Michael B. Toomay, Claremont, and Theodore G. Toomay, Stockton, and a sister, Mrs. John C. Rouser, Arlington. Dr. Luther Freeman officiated at the funeral and interment was in Pomona cemtery.

Note: While doing volunteer data entry at our local library in Ontario, California, I came across this obituary which might be of some interest to someone on this list. This does not relate to any surname that I am researching personally. Nancy
