The Sibley community was shocked Saturday evening by the news of the unexpected death of Mrs. L.H. Heetland, wife of Sibley's pioneer physician, Dr. L.H. Heetland.

Returning from Sheldon on the evening bus, Mrs. Heetland suffered a severe heart attack and was taken off the bus by ambulance just as they were nearing Sibley. She passed away upon her arrival at the Osceola Hospital.

Services will be held this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in First Methodist Church with the Rev. Harvey Nelson in charge. Interment will be in the Sibley cemetery.
