Child Dies from Strangulation

Little Lila Nablo, 2 1/2 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Nablo, living east of Beaman, was strangled to death Wednesday forenoon by a foreign substance being lodged in the windpipe. The child had been playing around the house about an hour following breakfast when the mother heard her coughing and went to determine the trouble. She called Dr. Spain, who immediately took the child to Marshalltown, but the youngster died a short distance west of Conrad.

An X-ray did not disclose what the foreign substance was, but it is thought to be a morsel of food that had been eaten, possibly a plum skin.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church in Beaman Friday afternoon, with Rev. J. J. Snyder officiating. Interment was made in the Beaman cemetery.

Ila Marie Nablo, infant daughter of Adam Gilbert and Florence Goldie Nablo, was born Jan. 13, 1926, at Beaman, and died Sept. 12, 1928, while on the way to the hospital at Marshalltown.

Ila was a bright and sweet natured little girl of happy disposition. She was a real pal of her brother, Adelbert Harold. She was also very fond of her baby sister, Letha Jane.

Ila Marie was taken into the Methodist church at Beaman on Sept. 18, 1927, at which time her mother and father gave her to the Lord in the sacred covenant of baptism. She enjoyed going to Sunday school with her brother.

While there shall be a vacant little chair at our table and a hush of little feet in the home where she will be missed by all, yet we shall feel that we tried to do our best for her. We know that she is at rest. Our prayerful desire is that we may always live so we can see her in heaven. Signed--Father, Mother, Brother Adelbert Harold and Sister Letha Jane.

Funeral services were held in the Methodist Episcopal church at Beaman Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The Rev. J. J. Snyder conducted the services. The hymns were sung by Mesdames Clayton Thomas and R. L. Oglesby, accompanied at the piano by Mrs. T. L. Evans. The flowers were cared for by five little girls, Doris, Jean and Merle Bruene, Ruth Ainley and Thelma Kleespie. Four boys acted as pallbearers, Richard and Warren Bruene, Kenneth Kleespie and Leland Nablo. Interment was made in the Oakland cemetery.
