Funeral services were conducted Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, May 19 for Charles E. Crane, in Christensen Funeral Home with Rev. John C. Thorns officiating.

Mrs. Alvin Iversen furnished organ music. Mrs. Virginia Ross, a niece of Mr. Crane, sang "The Twenty-third Psalm", accompanied by Mrs. J.S. Persell at the organ.

Charles E. Crane, son to Thomas and Elizabeth Jones Crane, was born at Oxford Mills, Jones County, Iowa, November 23, 1873, and passed away in Hartley Memorial Hospital May 16, 1961, after a lingering sickness over a period of years, following the loss of his eyesight.

Coming with his parents to Ida County in 1877, the Crane family located on and operated the farm northeast of Battle Creek, now owned by Walter Burow. Here he grew to manhood assisting with various activities of the farm. He received his education in the rural schools and later was associated with his father in stock-raising on the "Fairview" farm, specializing in thoroughbred Shorthorn cattle and Clydesdale horses.

He was a member of the Methodist Church and assisted in church activities. He is the last child...his sister and seven brothers having preceded him in death.

Pall bearers were Ed H. Campbell, Elmer Lake, Paul Horstman, Frank Campbell, Steve Morrice and Will Lampe.

Interment was in Mount Hope Cemetery in the family lot.
