    Retirement, decline and death
    By 1927, the year of her 90th birthday, Cosima's health was failing.
    The birthday was marked in Bayreuth by the naming of a street in her
    honor, although she was unaware; the family thought that knowledge of
    the celebrations would overexcite her. In her last years she was
    virtually bedridden, became blind, and was lucid only at intervals.
    She died, aged 92, on 1 April 1930; after a funeral service at
    Wahnfried her body was taken to Coburg and cremated.
