The date and newspaper are unknown at this time, as is the original source of the photocopied obituary. It probably came from the Leroy Public Library, or possibly the Farmer City Public Library. The obituaries of several siblings were clipped from the paper, shrunk down and fit onto one page.


The __ represents some unreadable text in the photocopy. It probably says 21 or 23. The spelling of her last name at the end of the article is how it appeared in the paper.
