A little over five years ago she was taken sick, never fully recovering, being a great sufferer most of the time, which she bore with wonderful patience and endurance.
Two weeks ago she was taken down with greater severity, and all that loving hands and medical skill could do was done, but she gradually grew worse becoming unconscious at about midnight Sunday Jan. 4th, never regaining consciousness, passing away at midnight Wednesday, January 7.
Hattie was baptized into the fellowship of the Baptist church of this city in 1898 remaining consistently in that fellowship until the time of her death.
She leaves to mourn their loss, nine sisters and two brothers, Mrs. H. M. Diehl, Mrs. Fred Hummel, Mrs. George Greonwald, Mrs. E. C. Stevens, Fanny, Will, Earl and Francis all of Grundy Center, Mrs. J. H. Whaley, San Diego, Calif., Mrs. Scott Murray, New Hartford, Iowa, and Mrs. Ed Slight, Bucks Grove, Iowa.
