Mrs. Berlie Hammond, 58, died suddenly at the home of her daughter, Mrs. R. S Gagstetter, Sunday evening about 10:00 o'clock. She collapsed while sitting in the home knitting.

She has suffered with asthma for years and for the past three weeks had been especially affected by it.

Funeral services were held this Wednesday afternoon at the Peet Chapel, with the Rev. Lawrence Juell, pastor of the Congregational Church, officiating. Music was provided by Mrs. Emerson Bonner and Mrs. A. F. DeCastro singing "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Safe In The Arms of Jesus." Mrs. J. P. Watson was organist.

Pallbearers were Ray Christian, Jim Christian of Harrison, Hill Boyles, Roy ZumBrunnen, Harley Lohr, and Arthur Thompson. Interment was in the Lusk Cemetery.

Mrs. Hammond was born June 16, 1891, in Springhill, Wyo., the daughter of Hial and Viola Church. When she was small, the family moved to the Kirtley community, and she attended grade school there. Later she attended business school at Grand Island, Neb.

She married George E. Hammond of Keene, N. H. November 25, 1915 at Kirtley, in her parents home. The couple started ranching on his homestead 12 miles north of Van Tassell and lived there until after her husband's death on January 16, 1944.

Their four children are surviving and include: Helen Gagstetter, Lusk, Allein Seegrist, Van Tassell; John Hammond, Kirtley, and George Hammond, Jr., Cheyenne. Mrs. Hammond's mother, Mrs. Church of Lusk, is also living, as well as a brother, Francis Church of Lusk; and a sister, Mrs. Jessie Golden of Lusk. There are five grandchildren.
