      Plunge Kills Mrs. Gunari
      Widow of Importer, Ill, Drops 12 Stories to East 87th Street

      Mrs. Mary Coles Gunari, widow of Andrew P. Gunari, who was an executive of Ralli Brothers, Ltd., importers, was killed about 10 o'clock yesterday morning when she fell or jumped from a window of her twelfth-floor apartment at 1,060 Park Avenue. She was 65 years old.

      Detective Martin Hayes said the fall occurred after a nurse, Alice Conway, had left the room to get a bottle of spirits of ammonia. Mrs. Gunari had been under a physician’s care for a nervous disorder. The body landed on a sidewalk near Eighty-seventh street.

      Mrs. Gunari is survived by a daughter from her first marriage, Mrs. Henry Clews Jr., who is in England. Also surviving are two sisters, Mrs. Annie H. Albertson of Amityville, L.I., and Mrs. Sarah A. Draegert of Brooklyn, and a brother, John H. Coles of Little Neck.

      Mrs. Gunari’s first husband was Jacob W. Titus of Glen Cove. Her second husband was Isaac J. Van Amburgh. She was married to Mr. Gunari in New Canaan, Conn., on June 9, 1928. He died in 1934. [2]
