The State

Trans World Airlines was sued for $78,000 by a Corona woman who said the company lost her luggage, which contained the cremated remains of her late husband. Edward Coughlin died and was cremated in March, 1984, the petition filed in Riverside County Superior Court said. His widow, Dorothy Coughlin, was taking the ashes back to his hometown of Boston in accordance with her husband’s last wishes. A suitcase containing the ashes and some of her clothing was lost en route. The airline paid $269 to help replace some of the clothing and offered $981 more for other items of apparel and the ashes. But the secondary offer was refused.
