I found a short obituary for Julianita Torres in 23 January 1909 edition of the Socorro Chieftain. Below is my transcription:

The deceased was sick only three days, a severe cold developing into pneumonia. Funeral services were conducted from the family residence and the church of San Miguel at half past nine o'clock Monday morning in the presence of a large attendance of sorrowing relatives and friends. Interment took place in the Catholic cemetery.
