Also surviving are a brother, Fred Segrist, and a sister Mrs. Frank (Lucy) Roffman, both of Post township; nineteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

The family had lived on farms in this vicinity until about five years ago when they moved to Postville, which has since been her home.

Pallbearers at the funeral Friday will be Ira E. Smith, H. W. Meier, Earl Abernethy, Charles Reincke, Herman Schutta and C. C. Sander.

Etta died July 16, 1941
