Just seven years later this obit appeared:
1917-Aug-01 Chicago Daily News Wednesday page 20
HELWICK -Carrie (nee Anderson), beloved wife of Carl N., fond mother of Charles, Mrs. Mary Murphy, Mrs. Josephine Brennan, Paul and Ethel.
Funeral Friday Aug. 3 at 1 p.m. from her late residence 3810 W. Fullerton Ave., autos to Mount Olive.
For Seats call Canal 1344.
Oakland (Cal.) papers please copy.(Ref: Oakland (Cal.) papers please copy.

[My notes written at the time I acquired this obit:
. . . . of the five children listed those probably not in California are Josephine, Paul, Mary and most likely not 18 yr old Ethel. . . . .
Well, thank goodness I didn't assume this guess was the answer because as it turns out Edel/Ethel was in California at the time of her mother's death. Also, as you can see Roy Ole had passed away during the interim.]
