We were saddened to hear of the death last Friday of Mrs. Lena Campbell, one time resident of Westfield, now of Sioux City. She had been ill for some time. One daughter, Mrs. Basil Hoffman, lives in Westfield, another, Mrs. Clark Lilly, lives just south of Westfield, and Vera Eslick of Elk Point. Two sons, Harold and Don, live at Akron. We extend sincere sympathy to the loved ones. The funeral was held Tuesday p. m. in Westfield Congregational church.
