Well Known Woman Dies Miss Mary L. Jewell, Popular Evanston Church Worker and Chicago Teacher Succumbed Wednesday. FUNERAL ON THURSDAY Miss Mary L. Jewell, sister of Miss Helen M. Jewell, probation officer of Evanston, and daughter of the late Dr. James Stuart Jewell, died early Wednesday morning at her home in Evanston after a short illness. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the chapel at Graceland cemetery. There were no services at the house. Dr. Amos W. Patten, professor of Biblical history at Garrett Biblical Institute, and a close friend of the family, officiated. Though the death of Miss Jewell was sudden, it was not unexpected. For some time she had been complaining of terrific pains in the head. A week ago she was striken. A hemorrhage the brain developed and then little hope was held out for her ultimate re- recovery. End Was Peaceful. The end came peacefully early Wednesday morning, her sister, Miss Helen Jewell, her only relative, being present when she passed away. Though for years she had been in delicate health she never complained to her friends and she was noted for her happy disposition and winning ways. For a number of years she had been a teacher in the Rogers Park public school, where she carried the love and esteem of her pupils. It was with the greatest sorry they learned yesterday of her death and their loss. Had she lived Miss Jewell would have been 44 years old the 13th day of this month. She was born in Evanston and received her early education from a governess employed in her home. Her father, the late Dr. James Stuart Jewell, was one of the best known physicians in this country, being a specialist on nervous diseases. Family Moved Away. After residing here for a number of years the family moved to Chicago. After the death of Mrs. Jewell, Dr. Jewell and his two daughters resided in Florida, after which they returned to Evanston. Miss Jewell was a prominent and active worker in the Covenant Methodist church and the news of her death brought genuine sorrow to the mem- bers of the congregation, to whom she had become so intimately known by her loyal and faithful services in the different societies of the church. For the past two years Miss Jewell had resided with her sister in a bungalow which they had erected at 2708 Hartzell street.
