Concepción Torres Nicolás: Announcement of her death: From La Dinastía

Concepción Torres y Nicolás (b.1829-d. Barcelona, 4th Feb 1894) was my grandfather's grandmother. I am still looking for other Torres y Nicolás siblings and haven't found any yet.

I found the following hidden away on page 3 of La Dinastía (Barcelona) of 6th Feb 1894 (2 days after her death, and nearly 2 years after her husband, Jose Texidor Busquets, who passed away in 1892) - it is lacking in any family detail compared to the announcement of her husband's or children's deaths: (translated from the original Spanish)

Doña Concepción Torres y Nicolás has died; burial this morning at 10am, from the mortuarial home, San Simplicio del Regomir 4, to the church of Saints Just and Pastor and from there to the South West cemetery.

And this was in La Dinastía (Barcelona) of 10th March 1894:

Funeral: For the soul of Doña Concepción Torres y Nicolás; to be held this morning at 10am at the church of Saints Just and Pastor.
