Young Life Ended
Mrs. Dick Burma and sister, Mrs. H. Krominga, of Abbott, received a message Monday conveying the sad news of the death of their niece, Miss Ella Meinders, at the Meinders home near Aplington. The girl was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. M. Meinders, who resided five miles south of that town, and was fifteen years of age. She had been in her usual good health until last Saturday when she complained of not feeling well and when her parents went to town Saturday afternoon they left her lying down as she said her head ached. On their return she grew worse and in spite of medical attention and loving care she passed away Monday noon. The cause of her death is given as brain fever. She was a bright, lovable girl and will be much missed in the home, her parents, one sister and two brothers being prostrated by her sudden demise.
The funeral services were held Thursday afternoon. Mrs. H. Krominga and daughter, Minnie, went to Aplington Wednesday evening and Mr. and Mrs. Dick Burma and two daughters, Minnie and Tena, drove down Thursday morning.--Ackley Journal
