A daughter, Thelma Pearl, was born on Friday, March 20, to Mr. and Mrs. Aubrey Blodgett of Belvidere and soon departed this life. The infant was buried in the Wilmore cemetery on Saturday, March 21.
The darling baby leaves to mourn her departure, her father, mother, and sister, Beulah Mae, grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. D. R. Snodgrass of Elkland, Mo., Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Blodgett of Fair Grove, Mo., and a host of other relatives and friends.
We had a little treasured one
She was our pride and joy,
We loved her, oh, perhaps too much,
For soon she slept and died.
All is dark with our dwelling
Lonely are our hearts today,
For the one we loved so dearly,
Has forever passed away.
Mrs. Blodgett is the sister of Mrs. Omer White of this community. The bereaved family has the sympathy of their many friends.
