    • A well-known ex-city resident, Mrs. James (Berniece L.) Emmert, 75, formerly of 607 Shelby street, died Tuesday at the Brandel care Center, Highland Park, Illinois, after a brief illness.

      She was the widow of Judge James Emmert, ex-Shelbyville Mayor and former Indiana Attorney General and Chief Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court.

      Mrs. Emmert, a registered nurse, was believed to be Shelby County's first public health nurse. She also was active in the mental health organization here.

      A resident of Shelbyville for more than 50 years, Mrs. Emmert moved to the Highland Park, Illinois area last year. Her local memberships include the First United Methodist Church and Chapter AL, P.E.O.

      Born May 13, 1903 in Vincennes, a daughter of Henry and Hallie Foster, she was married January 1, 1929 in Indianapolis to Judge James A. Emmert, who died April 14, 1974.

      Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Paul S. (Elizabeth) Allor, Whittier, California and Mrs. Barney B. (Catharine) Regen, Dickson, Tennessee, a son, James A. Emmert Jr., Glencoe, Illinois; two sisters, Mrs. Milton Rohrer, Vincennes and Mrs. Peter Cullison of Maryland, and six grandchildren.

Burial will be in Forest Hill Cemetery. Memorials are requested to be in the form of contributions to a favorite charity.
