Weekly Oregon Statesman 10 Apr 1885 8:4. 

Loving hearts tenderly and sadly laid to rest, on yesterday afternoon, the mortal remains of Mrs. Avarilla W. Bass, wife of Samuel Bass, of this city, and daughter of the late Daniel Waldo. Mrs. Bass came to this country with her parents forty two years ago, when only ten years old; her life was spent on this coast. She knew the trials and hardships of frontier life, and she bravely did her part in developing the resources of this goodly land. Patiently and firmly she wrought in the web of life, making few mistakes, and leaving a priceless heritage, a good name, to cheer and comfort loving friends who mourn her loss. When the legends of the Waldo Hills shall have been forgotten and the memories of pioneer life shall have faded into traditional lore, it may be that Avarilla’s life-work will have been swallowed up in the dim past, but an honored, useful life can never be lost in its bearings upon human character. There was a large gathering of friends to perform the burial services, which were conducted by Rev. J. Taylor Chambers, at the residence on Center and Summer streets, at 2 o’clock p.m. on yesterday. A husband, son, and daughter mourn a wife and mother gone; an aged mother, Mrs. Daniel Waldo, two brothers, Hon. Wm. and Chief Justice J. B. Waldo, with two sisters, Mrs. J. C. Brown and Mrs. Mary P. Logan, realize a daughter and sister parted from the family group, but in all this sad affliction there is the hallowed memory of a sweet life, with all its sacred treasure. Rest in peace!
