An Unexpected Death
The death of Remda Abbas occurred at the home of her parents, east of Ackley, Thursday last, following a very brief illness, a day or two. She had been about her accustomed duties, and the impression prevailed when she felt ill, that it was a trifling ailment, but a day later her condition became serious.
She had attended Ackley public schools and had the esteem of her numerous young friends. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon last, conducted by Rev. Volkema of the Dutch Reformed church, three miles east of Ackley.

Ackley Girl Dead
Remda Abbas, 19, died at her home four miles southeast of Ackley, in Grundy county, shortly after midnight Thursday of last week following a few hours of illness. She complained of not feeling well about 4 p.m. and at 6 she fell into a coma from which she never regained consciousness. Remda was born and reared in the vicinity of Ackley, and after completing the eighth grade in the country school attended the Ackley high school, from which she graduated the past year. She then attended Ellsworth College at Iowa Falls to prepare for teaching, but did not secure a school this fall. She was unusually studious. She is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Abbas, three sisters, Henrietta, Tena and Minnie, all attending Ackley high school, and two brothers, Arend and Cornelius. Funeral services were held Monday from the home at noon, and at 2 p.m. at the Holland Reformed church, four miles east of Ackley, conducted by the pastor, Rev. A. D. Valkema.
