Despite all efforts to preserve the tiny life of Mildred Marie, twin child of Mrs. Irene Sharp, she passed away Monday at the Moyer nursing home after living for 28 days. The male child weighing one pound 12 ounces lived by a few hours while Marie, who weighed two pounds four ounces was fed by an eye-dropper and kept at an even temperature by means of an electric pad and hopes for her survival were high. Burial was made Tuesday afternoon in Queen's Lawn Cemetery beside her twin brother.
