She had been a sufferer of cancer for the past sixteen years, but was always patient and never complaining. She and her husband located on the home farm north of town many years ago and there they have always resided. Their daughter, Mrs. Helmer Molendorp, lives on the same farm so as to be near to help her parents.

Funeral services will be held Thursday at one o'clock at the house, and at one-thirty at the Rev. Heinrichs church, with Rev. Heinrich conducting the services.
