She was a kind and loving mother and she will be greatly missed by her family and many friends, as she was always ready to give her time to anyone who needed help. One of her greatest joys was to have all her family together. Funeral services were held at the Franklin Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 20. Rev. Raymond W. Sandsted officiated.

Interment was in Greenwood Cemetery. A precious one from us has gone, A Voice we love is stilled; A place is vacant in our home, That never can be filled. God in his wisdom can recall, The love the doomed is given; And tho her body slumbeth now, Her soul is safe in Heaven. Obituary from unknown newspaper.
