Mrs. Elmer Hammer was taken seriously ill Wednesday evening of last week. The doctor was immediately called and advised that she be taken immediately to Douglas to the hospital. Thursday morning this was done, but peritonitis had reached such a stage of development that it was impossible to save her life and she passed away Friday morning, January 28th.
The remains were shipped back to Lusk where the undertaking department of the Midwest Hardware company was given charge.
Services, with Rev. H. H. Koontz officiating, were held Monday, January 31st, at the Community church. Interment was made in the Lusk cemetery.
As the father of the deceased, the late Herman Hitz, passed away just fifteen days previous to the death of Mrs. Hammer, the blow to the family is indeeed a hard one and the sympathy of the entire community is extended to them and the bereaved husband.
