Ben Lindaman received a telegram Wednesday stating that Mrs. R. E. Niebruegge, wife of Rev. Robt. E. Niebruegge, died at Chancellor, S.D. at 1:30 that morning, and that the body would arrive in Wellsburg on Thursday evening. The cause of death was cancer of long standing, which originated in the foot and gradually undermined the entire system. Mrs. Niebruegge was born and raised in this county, and has many relatives and a host of friends hereabouts. She suffered much during the last days and death came as a relief from intense pain. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Lindaman and was married to R. E. Niebruegge here and went with him to his charge at Chancellor.
