Grief Causes Mrs. Bass To Take Her Life…Wife of County Commissioner Drowns

Mrs. B. C. Bass of Dunedin, wife of county commissioner Bass committed suicide Monday morning about 9:30 by jumping into Clearwater Bay from the end of the Skinner Pier. For two years she had grieved over the death of her young daughter, Martha and this had finally driven her to seek death as an only means of relief. In a letter addressed to the public and written just before her death, she said, “When my little girl died, I started grieving and brooding and kept it up until it has run my mind crazy.”

The body was found about 10:30 by Henry Tinney and a physician stated that life had been extinct for at least an hour. This was corroborated by the nurse, who said Mrs. Bass left the house about 9:00. A coroner’s jury impaneled by Sheriff Whitehurst rendered a verdict of “suicide committed by drowning in Clearwater Bay.”

Funeral services were held at 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon conducted by Doctor W. B. Wilkie. The body was laid beside the little girl whose death had caused the girls’ mother to end her life

The letter written by Mrs. Bass a few minutes before her death reads as follows: “To the public-When my little girl died, I started grieving and brooding and kept it up until it has run my mind crazy and I worry over everything I hear, whether it is good, bad or indifferent. I cannot eat or sleep over worrying myself, my husband, my babe, people, the war and everything. I am just mad and without cause, for I have led a happy life, but brooding over her death ran my mind crazy and I can’t get control of it.”

Mrs. Bass’ condition was critical for several weeks following the death of her little daughter. She was taken to several states with the hope of relieving her mind, but to no avail. Another baby was born several months ago, but the mother did not cheer up at the event of the little child and until a few days ago she had been in a sanitarium.
