Brought Home for Burial.
The remains of Mrs. Gray (who was Petra Gjems) were brought to Decorah from St. Paul last evening, for burial in the family lot. Some years ago when the family resided here she was one of the brightest scholars in the high school, from which she graduated with honors, and enjoyed the friendship of a large circle of acquaintances. The body of her infant child, which died April 12th, was also brought for burial beside the mother. The funeral takes place to-day from the United Lutheran church at 1:30 p. m.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows Petra was born Oct. 5, 1865 and died May 16, 1898. The infant was born April 10, 1898 and died April 12, 1898. They are both buried in Lutheran Decorah Cemetery.
