Well Known Resident Succumbs to a Brief Illness

On Monday afternoon at five o’clock occurred the sad death of Mrs. Fred Helgens at her home about two miles northwest of Craig. Her death came suddenly as a result of four days of illness and is a blow to the family which time alone can alleviate. She has been in poor health for several years, however, and during that time has submitted to several operations for gall stones.

Mrs. Helgens was born April 17, 1859 and died April 27, 1914, being fifty five years and ten days old at the time of her death. She leaves besides her husband, a family of five children and also five brothers and two sisters.

The children are Mrs. Henry Schultz, of Merrill, and Reno, Marie, John and Mike, all at home. The youngest of her children is about thirteen years old.

Her brothers and sisters all live in this vicinity and are: Richard Johnson Le Mars; Mike Johnson of Ireton; and J. H. Johnson, E. J. Johnson and C. G. Johnson of the Craig vicinity. Her sisters are Mrs. Onno Croon, of Craig, and Mrs. Fred Eilers, of Le Mars.

The funeral services were conducted at the Craig church on Thursday by Rev. J. Vollmar, of Craig, and Rev. J. J. Vollmar, of Le Mars.
