From newspaper provided by Linus Cremer:


Three-year old Blanche Foss, tragically stricken with spinal meningitis, died Thursday at the Decorah hospital where she had been a patient four days. She had been mildly ill two weeks previously to that.

Private funeral services were conducted Saturday afternoon in the Lutheran cemetery where burial followed.

Surviving little Blanche are her father, Max Foss, and her mother, Mrs. Viola Foss, one half-sister, Carol Foss, and her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Hans Rude, with whom she lived.

Blanche was born in Decorah April 14, 1937. Her untimely death leaves all who loved her deeply grieved


She bore her pain and bore it well
And what she suffered none can tell.
Sleep on, dear Blanche, enjoy thy rest.
We miss you most, who loved you best.

Mr. and Mrs. Hans Rude.

Lutheran Decorah Cemetery
