The funeral of Miss Leeta Hargraves, who died Saturday afternoon was held from the residence of her father, Mr. Calvert Hargraves, 824 Worthington Place, (Omaha, Nebraska) Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock.

The death of Miss Hargraves came as a severe shock to the many friends whom she has made during her residence in the city. She was taken ill in September with typhoid fever and her life was at one time despaired of, but her recovery was thought to have been complete. Last week she suffered a relapse and the end came suddenly. She was an accomplished young woman and a general favorite in social circles. At the time of her death Mr. Hargraves was absent at his sheep ranch in Wyoming and only reached Omaha Monday. Miss Hargraves was an only child and her mother is completely prostrated by reason of the shock.

Omaha Daily Bee, November 7, 1899:
The funeral of Miss Leeta R. Hargraves occurs today at 1 o'clock from the family residence, 824 Worthington Place. Interment Forest Lawn.
