The remains of Eva, the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Helgerman formerly of this place but now of Groton, South Dakota, will be brought her tonight, Saturday, for burial.
Miss Eva has been sick for the past five years and everything the parents could do for her was done.
A little over a year ago they were advised by the doctors to go west with her so the family moved to Groton. At first she seemed to improve, then she was taken sick again and compelled to give up her school work and her health has been gradually failing her ever since.
She was always a friend to her school work and was a bright pupil as she always ranked one of the best amongst her classmates.
Miss Eva was about fourteen years old and was born at this place. She had friends where ever she went and although so young always had a kind word for all she knew.
The sorrowing parents will accompany the remains here and the funeral services will be held at the Congregational church Saturday forenoon, Rev. F. A. Dean officiating. The heart broken parents and relatives have the sympathy of all in this their sad hour of trouble.
Note: her mother was Katie Easton
