Mrs. Ulfers Dead
The death of Mrs. Ulfers, whose former name was Arends, occurred most unexpectedly at her home, five and one-half miles northeast of town, Saturday last. She was around in her usual good health that morning, had partaken of a hearty breakfast, but a short time thereafter told her grandson, who was at home with her at the time, that she had a headache and would lie down on the bed to rest for a while. It was near the noon hour that he went to call her; receiving no response, he touched her hand--and discovered that she was cold in death. Mrs. Ulfers was in her 80th year. She was the mother of three children; one son, Casper Arends, living east of town, and two daughters, residing in South Dakota. The funeral is to be held at her late home at 12:00 o'clock, tomorrow (Thursday) and from thence to the West Friesland (German) Presbyterian church, where Rev. Agena, pastor of the church, will conduct the funeral service.
