Little Daughter Passes—Marion Elizabeth Fishel, seven-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.L. Fishel died in Portland yesterday following an extended illness and a mastoid operation performed about three weeks ago. The little girl was taken to the metropolis by her parents and rallied well following the operation. The funeral will be held from the residence near Fischer’s Mill Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Rev. J.P. Clyde, of the Congregational church, will officiate and burial will be in Crystal Lake cemetery. The Fishels have made their home in Corvallis a little over a year, coming from Plymouth neighborhood, and Mr. Fishel has since been employed at the Fischer mill. The parents and one sister Miss Esther, survive. Little Marion Elizabeth was born October 10, 1912, and was nearing the eighth anniversary of her birth. The body arrived here at noon today, the family returning from Portland last evening.
