Not often is it the sad duty of a newspaper to chronicle the death of two members of a family, a man and wife, both having been stricken  with pneumonia, and passing away within forty-eight hours of each other. Such, however, is the sad news of the death of Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Dennison, who lived on Tenth Avenue in Thermalito.  About a two weeks ago their house and contents were completely destroyed by fire. During the fire it was thought that they contracted a cold, resulting in pneumonia. Mrs. Dennison died last Saturday, (December 31). Dennison was not told of his wife's death, as his condition was considered too serious.

A double funeral was held Tuesday Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. from the undertaking parlors of Hamilton and Riley, Rev. W. J. Johnson officiating. Solos were sung by Mrs. Blanche Miles. The following were the casket bearers: S. F. Bonner Jr., J. S. Mardon, H. H. Decker, W. H. McNamee, William Bartley, and M. M. Moseley. Internment was in Oroville cemetery.

Dennison was a native of Ohio and had lived in California about 35 years. He was a member of the Placerville Lodge of Masons.

Mrs. Dennison was born in El Dorado County near Placerville. Dennison's age was 52 and Mrs. Dennison was 44. They are survived by two sons, Harry F. and William N, and a daughter Mrs. Sanders, and a grandchild Joy Elaine, all of Thermalito.

Mrs. Dennison also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Anita Youngman of Grass Valley and Mattie Flowers of Placerville and two brothers Frank Bailey of Placerville and Lorenzo Bailey of Bakersfield.
