Mrs. Gottfried Germann, 75, Claimed Sunday at Local Hospital; Final Rites Conducted Here Tuesday Afternoon

Death claimed Mrs. Gottfried Germann at 4:30 o'clock Sunday morning, ending many years of patient suffering with a heart ailment. Mrs. Germann had entered the Lusk hospital Sunday, January 26th, and on the following Tuesday suffered a stroke ending with a cerebral hemorrhage.

Concluding rites were held at three o'clock Tuesday afternoon in the chapel of the Peet funeral home with Rev. Mann G. Flint paying final tribute. During the service, Mrs. Ruby Crittendon and Mrs. Eileen Boltie impressively sang "The Old Rugged Cross" and "No Night There". Mrs. J. P. Watson accompanied them at the chapel organ.

Interment was held in the Lusk cemetery with Wm. Brunckhorst, Gus Deitchler, Ed Marks, C.E. Marvin, Arthur Grimes and Ira Teter bearing the remains to their last resting place.
