The funeral of Mrs. Eve Manierre Dawson, wife of George E. Dawson, former attorney for the Chicago Sanitary District, was held Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock from her late residence, 552 Elm street, Winnetka. Mrs. Dawson, who was 79 years old, died at her home last Friday after an illness of three days.

She was a native of Chicago and a lifetime resident of that city, having moved to Winnetka during the past summer where she and her husband lived with her son, Mitchell Dawson. Mrs. Dawson was the daughter of Edward Manierre, an early settler in Chicago who served as an alderman and also as Chicago city treasurer at one time. She was an accomplished pianist and an active worker for women’s suffrage.

Besides her husband and her son in Winnetka, she is survived by another son, Manierre Dawson of Ludington, Mich., one sister Mrs. Charles Ware of Kenilworth, and two brothers, Dr. John T. Manierre of Chicago, and George W. Manierre of Pasadena.

Dr. Herbert L. Willett of the Kenilworth Union church officiated at the funeral services. Burial took place at Graceland cemetery.
