The [Center Township] community was exceedingly shocked last Wednesday morning when it was announced the Mrs. John Delling [Deling] had passed away at her home east of Estherville that morning [May 23, 1917]. Mrs. Delling had been ill for some time with the dread disease, dropsy.

[Mrs. Deling was born August 13, 1889 in Germany. Her parents were John Wiltz and Mary Wilton of Germany who named their daughter, Annie. At the time of her death Mrs. Deling was 27 years, 9 months and 10 days old.]

The funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the German Lutheran church and was largely attended. The entire community joins in extending sincerest sympathy to the stricken family in their hour of bereavement.
