She walked into her home and immediately became unconscious. Her physician was unable to arouse her and decided that she had been [text illegible] with an apoplectic attack. She lingered until Friday at 2:30 p.m. when death came. The funeral was held Sunday at 2 p.m. at St. Paulís Lutheran Church in ida Grove, the pastor, Rev. J. H. Iversen preaching the discourse in English. She was laid to rest in Ida Grove Cemetery.
