Cornelia Heile Funeral is Set for Tomorrow

Services for Mrs. Cornelia Dyer Heile, 92, who died Saturday in the apartment of her granddaughter Mrs. Cornelia Richardson Neilson, in the Parkway Hotel, 2100 Lincoln Park West, will be held at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow in the chapel at 1732 W. Wilson Avenue.

Mrs. Heile was the daughter of Dr. Charles Volney Dyer, who came to Chicago in 1835, was one of Chicago's first health officers, and was surgeon of the city guards when that militia unit still occupied Fort Dearborn. She was born in a farm house on the present site of the First National Bank.

Dr. Dyer subsequently opened the Lakeview Subdivision, and named Cornelia Avenue after his daughter. Barry Avenue once was known as Nellie Street, which was Mrs. Heile's nickname. She was one of the founders of the Lakeview Woman's Club.

She is survived by a son Louis A. Heile of Chicago and by 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

Her husband was the late Adolph Heile.
