Christian Church Notes
It is with deep regret that announcement is made of the death of Helmar Danielson [Danielsen], son of Brother and Sister C.H. Danielson. While the funeral arrangements have not been completed, it is quite likely Brother H.C. Hurd, of Sheldon, will conduct the funeral at the Baptist church, Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. (Estherville Democrat, July 17, 1918)

Local Young Man Died Last Monday
Funeral Services of Helmer P. Danielson Being Held Today From Home and Church
Helmer P. Danielson, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C.H. Danielson of this city, died at the City Hospital in the early hours of last Monday morning. His death was due to appendicitis. He was operated on 2 year ago. The wound healed over properly and was thought to be all right, he apparently gaining his health and strength. But about two weeks ago he was taken suddenly ill and another operation was performed in the hopes of saving his life. He made a brave fight, but without avail, and passed away shortly after one o’clock.

He was twenty-one years, ten months and four days at the time of his death. At the time of his death he was employed at the Miller hotel and café, being on night duty. Previous to that time he was employed at the Hogett cigar factory. He was always an industrious young man, well liked by his associates and bore a splendid reputation among all who knew him. He was born in Franklin county, Iowa. He moved with his parents to Emmet county about 12 years ago, and for six years lived near Wallingford. The family then moved to Estherville, which was his home until he passed away.

Funeral services are being held this afternoon at two o’clock at his late home, and at 2:15 at the Baptist church. They are in charge of Rev. Stringfellow, of the Christian church and Rev. Hurd, of Sheldon, a former pastor. Interment will be made in Oak Hill cemetery. Besides the grief stricken parents, he leaves to mourn his loss five sisters, Mrs. John Challberg, of Davenport, Hazel, Pearl, Rose and Frances, of this city, and two brothers, Albert and Samuel of this city. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community in the loss of their son and brother. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, July 17, 1918)
