Funeral services for Mrs. Clara A. Buckie, mother of John F. Buckie, 315 Sixteenth street, who passed away last Saturday afternoon from injuries received in a fall from a window of her room at the North Shore Health resort in Winnetka where she was a patient, were held form the Linn Funeral Parlors at 3415 N. Clark street, Chicago, last Tuesday. Rev. Francis Carr Stifler, pastor of the Wilmette Baptist church, officiated at the services. Interment was at Rosehill cemetery.

Mrs. Buckie was the widow of the late John F. Buckie, who was the founder of the firm of John F. Buckie and company of Chicago. She had come to Wilmette last Aril from her winter home in California. Taking ill last November, she was taken to the North Shore Sanitarium for treatment. From evidence offered at the coroner's inquest it was considered impossible to determine the cause of the accident in which she met her death. It was thought probably, however, that while standing at an open window she fainted and fell out.

She is survived by her son, John, of Wilmette, two sisters, Mrs. James Lennox and Mrs. Jennie Dexter of Chicago, and four grandchildren.
