Edna Voris

Mr. and Mrs. Wm Voris, of Minneapolis, came Saturday with the remains of their little daughter, Edna Mae, who passed away at the hospital there about three weeks ago. She was only sick a short time, with tubercular meningitis and diphtheria. She was the only child in the home, pretty, sweet tempered little girl three years old, and the grief of the parents is sad to see. The funeral was held at the home of his aunt, Mrs. J.E. Wyant, of this city, Sunday at 2:30 p.m., Rev. Geo Lindsay conducted the service and interment was in the Shellsburg Cemetery. Owing to Mrs. Voris being quarantined at the time of the child's death, the body was placed in a metallic casket until they could come. Mrs. Voris will remain here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Murray of Lewis Bottom, for some time. Mr. Voris left for his home Tuesday, as he is a conductor on a car line.

Those from away who came to attend the funeral were his father, Mac Voris, of Princeton, John Grimmsley of Davenport, D.E. Voris of Marion, her sister, Mrs. Hooglan and husband of Center Point, and another sister Elenor and husband, of Cedar Rapids.
