Mrs. Vinnie Rorick, wife of David Rorick, a prominent attorney of 110 South Pacific street, passed away early this morning at the family home after a lingering illness of more than six months.
Mrs. Rorick endeared herself in the hearts of many through her quiet charity work and beautiful character. Up to the time of her illness she was prominent in civic and social affairs of the community. She had been a member of the Fortnightly club, one of the first woman’s cultural clubs of the city, the Shakespeare club, a member of the city planning commission, and the library board. She was instrumental in forming the Oceanside association for beautification of the local cemetery and had a prominent part in organizing a charity sewing club, which helped to provide clothes for the needy of the community last winter.
Mrs. Rorick was born in Rowen [sic], Iowa, and came to Oceanside in 1905 with her family, to whom she had always been a source inspiration and good care.
She leaves, beside her husband, two daughters, Mrs. William McGill, of Elsinore, and Mrs. Clarence Steves, of Fallbrook; one son, David, a student at Pomona college, and several sisters and brothers. A large number of sorrowing friends remain to share the bereavement of the family.
Funeral services will be announced later from the Berry Mortuary.
