Mary Ann Hoblit, 74, Dies Friday
Mrs. Mary Ann Hoblit, 74, died at Bassett, Neb., on Friday, Dec. 3, after being taken there several weeks ago in the hope that the lower altitude would improve a serious heart condition.

Mrs. Edna DeCastro, Mrs. Gladys Marvin and Miss Neoma Taylor sang "We Are Going Down the Valley" and "In the Garden," accompanied by Mrs. J.P. Watson on the Chapel organ.
Interment was made in the Lusk Cemetery, with life-long friends conveying the remains to the last resting place. They were Sharon Chamberlain, George Sylvester, Dick Spinney, Earl Hales, C. C. Morehouse and Rulo Roberts.
