Mrs. D. E. Hollingsworth of Winterset, a life-long resident of Iowa, died here on Wednesday of last week. She was 65 years of age.

Mrs. Hollingsworth was the former Bessie J. Lorimor, a native of Ringgold county, where she was born Jan. 1, 1880, the daughter of Benjamin and Cordelia Lorimor. She had lived in Mt. Ayr, Knoxville, and Des Moines prior to her marriage.

She was married May 26, 1909, to Dennis E. Hollingsworth of this county, and her home has been here since that time, the last 21 years in Winterset. She was a member of the Presbyterian church here.

She is survived by her husband; five children, Helen Hollingsworth, Mrs. R. D. Conley, Bernard Hollingsworth, Mrs. Emil T. Norberg, and Doris Hollingsworth; one grandson; two sisters Mrs. John McKee of Tingley and Maude Lorimor of Los Angeles, Calif.; and one brother, Asher Lorimor of Long Island, N. Y.

Funeral services were held last Saturday from the Winterset Presbyterian church, in charge of the pastor, the Rev. Arthur Mortenson. Burial was made in the Peru cemetery.
