Burial Record for Paola Torres de Zimmerly

Today I discovered the burial record for my 2nd great-grandmother Maria Pabla Torres de Zimmerly. The sacramental record shows her name as Paola.

According to an article about the Zimmerly family, she died on 23 July 1917. The burial record I found confirms a death date around that time, as she was buried the next day.

I found the record on FamilySearch. Below is screen shot of the image.
