Funeral services were held today for Zipora Sharett, the wife of the late Prime Minister Moshe Sharett, who died Sunday night at the Tel Aviv Ichilov Hospital at the age of 76. Though she was ill recently, she recovered and decided to visit an exhibition here depicting the history of Jewish settlements in Israel. On the way to the exhibition she felt ill and was taken to the hospital. Mrs. Sharett was born in the Ukraine and came to Palestine in 1910. She married Moshe Shertok, later Sharett, in 1922.
