On Thursday April 2nd occurred the death of Mrs. Karn Narum, aged 58 years. After a long lingering illness, during which everything that willing hands could do, was done to comfort her by her children and relatives.
She was the widow of S.O. Narum who died eight years ago. She leaves nine children, five boys and four girls all grown to manhood and womanhood to mourn the loss of a loving mother.
Her remains were laid to rest in the East Paint Creek church cemetery on April 7th, followed by a large concourse of sympathizing friends occupying forty vehicles. Rev. Borg conducted the funeral services and delivered a very impressive and consoling funeral sermon.
