WAR NURSE BURIED

Legion Pays Honor to Kathryne Joyce In Arlington Cemetery

WASHINGTON, April 23, 1933 – While members of the Pittsburgh American Legion post which bears her name looked on, Kathryne May Joyce, a World War nurse, whose home was in Pittsburgh, was buried today in Arlington National Cemetery.

A Legion bugler blew Taps as the body was lowered into the grave.  The bugle call followed a ceremony conducted by members of the Pittsburgh Post and the Jane A. Delano Post of Washington, composed of women who saw active service during the war.

Miss Joyce died of pneumonia while nursing in an evacuation hospital near the Meuse-Argonne sector.  The Pittsburgh Legionnaires decided it would be fitting to have her reburied among the nation’s hero dead in the national cemetery.
