Thanks to Shirley Brier for finding, transcribing and contributing the above news article to this web site! She noted: "This microfilmed obituary has a line through the date April "23", and "30" appears to have been penciled in. I don't know who does this, probably the historical society, due to the paper using the wrong date. As you can see her services were on the 24th of April. The correct date of the obituary must be April 30, 1970.
