Mrs. Wm. Strong, whose home is a few miles south of town, died at the home of her daughter, Pearl, near Van Meter, Thursday morning.

Mrs. Strong went to nurse her daughter, who had the flu, contracting the disease and lived only two days.

The funeral was held at the home of her sister, Mrs. E. Maulsby in Earlham Saturday morning and her body was laid to rest in the Earlham cemetery. She leaves a husband and a large family of children, three sisters and one brother, to mourn her loss.


Coordinator's note: The County Coordinators, in trying to determine Mrs. William Strong's given name have concluded that the deceased is actually Nora Mae (White) Davis. All of the facts in the Strong obituary exactly fit Mrs. Davis and we believe that the Madisonian made an error in identifying the deceased.
