Had Read His Report in New York Avenue Presbyterian Church
His Long and Active Career in Every Phase of Civic Life -- His Masonic History
Just as he had concluded reading his annual report as treasurer of the board of trustees of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, last night, Noble D. Larner sank into his seat and died without a word or a sign of pain. Mr. Larner was seventy-three years old and heart failure was the cause of his death. He had been accompanied to the meeting, which was held in the Sunday school rooms of the church, by Mrs. Larner and his two grand children, Nellie Larner and Noble D., jr. The young people had been the guests of their grand parents at dinner in the afternoon, and the day had been one of unusual happiness.
Just before leaving for the church Mr. Larner complained somewhat of fatigue, but in accordance with his accustomed regard for duty, decided to go for the purpose of making his report in person.
