Young Mother Kills Herself After Quarrel
Oak Grove Woman’s Death Is 3rd Suicide Here in Five Days

Climaxing an argument with her husband over financial matters, Mrs. Sally Willis, 29-year-old Oak Grove mother, shot and killed herself Saturday night. According to information given police by Ronald Willis, the husband, and Phyllis O’Rourke, Mrs. Willis’ 11-year-old daughter by a former marriage, Mrs. Willis shot herself with a 22 calibre pistol shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday. The family had returned from a drive during which they stopped once or twice for a drink, Willis said. An argument over finances followed, after which Mrs. Willis threatened suicide if Willis left the house. As he turned to leave the bedroom where the argument occurred, Mrs. Willis reached for the weapon and shot herself before she could be stopped. She died en route to the hospital. Mrs. Willis’ death marked the third suicide in Monterey in five days, Police said. Besides her daughter and husband, the deceased is survived by a sister, Mrs. G.A. Babb of Richmond; four brothers – Arthur, Henry, Charles and Carlie Jubal, all of Flournoy, Calif., and a grandmother, Mrs. Lillian Christian of Oakland. The body will be sent to Flournoy for burial tomorrow, according to the Freeman-Rancadore mortuary, in charge of local arrangements. Deputy Coroner Sal Rancadore announced today three would be no inquest.
