Services Held For Mary Bloom

Memorial services were conducted by the Bollman Funeral home Monday at 2 p.m. from the Community Church for Mrs. Mary Bloom who passed away Friday, November 7, 1958 at Wallowa Memorial Hospital. Rev. John Munsey officiated and Guy Craig was soloist, singing “Hear My Prayer.” Mrs. Edna Craig was organist.

Casket bearers were: Wayne Williamson, Edwin Emmons, Richard O. Harmon, and George W. Emmons. Vault entombment was in the Enterprise Cemetery.

Mrs. Bloom was born March 23, 1886 at Wallowa and was the daughter of Hiram and Sarah Cramer, early pioneers of Wallowa County. She had lived in the county all of her life. On December 24, 1906 she was married to Edwin Bloom who passed away May 11, 1936. For many years she had been an operator for the local telephone company and she was a member of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers AFL No. 125. While she had been in frail health for several months, she had continued at her work and her passing was a shock to her many friends. She had been a hospital patient for only two days.

Surviving are four sisters and one brother: Mrs. Laura Harris, Seattle; Mrs. Myrtle Woodell, La Grande; Mrs. Tressie Downs, Alhambra, Calif.; Mrs. Fern Wade, Glendale, Calif.; and Lloyd Cramer, Bruneau, Ida.
