Miss Lizzie Manning Died Yesterday

She Had Suffered From a Disease of the Stomach for Several Years

Miss Lizzie Manning died at the home of Charles Henry Ivins on Broad street yesterday morning at eight o'clock. She had suffered for several years with a disease of the stomach, and on Saturday, November 17th, she was attacked with a very severe hemorrhage of the stomach. The best medical aid was at once summoned, but without avail. Other hemorrhages succeeded the first, although for a time it was thought there was a possibility of recovery, this hope waned as the days went by.

When Lizzie Manning was fourteen years old she went into the family of the late Rev. F. R. Harbugh as a maid to Mr. Harbaugh. Her docility, kindness and affectionate nature won the regard of the whole family and she became a companion to Miss Annie Harbaugh. When Miss Harbaugh and Charles Henry Ivins were married Miss Manning retained her position as companion and friend of Mrs. Ivins, and she remained in the family up to the time of her death. She was present at the death of Mrs. Harbaugh and of Mr. Harbaugh and her devotion to them and to Mr. and Mrs. Ivins was without bounds. In her general characteristics she exhibited the same excellent traits that were displayed in her devotion to the household of which she was a member. She was never heard to speak an unkind word to anyone, nor to speak unkindly of anyone.

Miss Manning was 37 years old. She was a daughter of Timothy Manning, who died some years ago. Her mother married again and is now Mrs. David Vaughn of Spring street. She leaves two sisters, Mrs. James Bennett and Mrs. Henry VanMater, both of Red Bank. She also leaves two half-sisters, Mrs. Arthur Brill of Oceanic and Miss Alice Vaughn of Red Bank; and one half-brother, Michael Vaughn of Red Bank. The funeral will be held at St. James's church on Friday morning at ten o'clock. The bearers will be James Quigley, Charles Hawkins, and Misses May Ryan, Annie Reilly, Mamie Reilly, Mary Holian, Katie Rhattigan and Margaret Quigley. The burial will be at Mt. Olivet cemetery.
