SERVICES PLANNED FOR SON OF DIVA
Mme. Schumann-Heink Is Stricken With Grief; Widow Bearing Loss Bravely
Funeral services for Mme. Ernestine Schumann-Heink's son, Hans Schumann-Heink, who died at the Agnew hospital early yesterday morning, will be conducted at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning at St. Joseph's Catholic Church. The services will be strictly private. Interment will be in the Catholic cemetery. This announcement was made by Johnson, Saum and Benbough last night, although it had been regarded as probable that the body would be cremated at Greenwood cemetery.
Mme. Schumann-Heink, the great singer, was almost prostrated yesterday over the death of her son. She remained at her home at Grossmont and refused to see her most intimate San Diego friends. Her great fondness for her chidlren is well known, and her chief consoling thought yesterday was the she was able to reach San Diego in time to be at the bedside of her dying boy. The diva was recently summoned from Chicago by the illness of her son, but he showed such great improvement after her return that she sang at the Exposition New Year's Day, delighting thousands. Later she went to Riverside, where she was notified that her son had suffered a relapse. Again she hurried to San Diego and was at the hospital when the end came.
Hans Schumann-Heink, who was in the insurance business here with W. E. Guy, had a wide acquaintance and many friends. He was the picture of robust young manhood and it was difficult for his San Diego admirers yesterday to realize that he was dead. His widow bore up bravely yesterday. Two little chldren also survive.
Even at the last, it is said, Schumann-Heink did not realize that he was dangerously ill. He was cheerful to the end. His illness started with an attack of the grip, but pneumonia soon developed. He was conscious up to about five minutes before he breathed his last.
Mme. Schumann-Heink, mother of Hans, is generally beloved in San Diego, she received many expressions of sympathy yesterday.
