Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA August 24, 1953 p2
Mrs. Julie Hawxhurst McKean, widow of the late Vice Adm. Josiah E. McKean and a resident of Carmel Highlands since 1928, died early Sunday morning in a local rest home following an extended illness. Mrs. Mckean was 87, born Jan. 14, 1866, in Brooklyn, N.Y. and spent her early years in that city. Her marriage to Adm. McKean took place in 1901, and the couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary one moth before Adm. McKean’s death in Aug. 1951. Prior to establishing “Homeport,” the McKean residence at Carmel Highlands, when the admiral retired from active service in 1928, the two lived in San Diego. Adm. McKean was commandant of the 11th Naval District, based at San Diego, for two years prior to his retirement. He was dubbed “Father of San Diego Harbor” in recognition of his work to make the harbor the hub of Naval operations on the West Coast. After coming to live in Carmel Highlands Mrs. McKean led a quiet life, engaging in Red Cross work until prevented by ill health. Both she and her husband had many local friends. She leaves several nieces, including Mrs. Helen Hawxhurst of New York. Funeral services were held at 11 o’clock today at the Berkeley Hills Chapel in Berkeley, and were followed by cremation.
