GERHARDT HUSMANN FOUND DEAD IN BED

Gerhardt Husmann, aged 78 years, 4 months and 7 days, was found dead in bed yesterday morning at 8:15 o’clock by his son, Nic Husmann, with whom he had been making his home on a farm 2 ˝ miles southwest of here. Mr. Husmann was a well known farmer and his sudden death was a severe shock to his many friends and relatives throughout the county. He went to bed the night previous feeling in the best of health and had also done some work the previous day.

Coroner Dr. B. J. Timmermann of this city held an inquest on the body and the verdict of the jury was that death was due to natural causes.

The funeral services will be held Monday morning at 9:30 o’clock at the Catholic Church in this city and the remains will be interred in the St. Mary’s cemetery.

Deceased was born in Germany. He is survived by several children and numerous other relatives and a host of friends. Mr. Husmann was well liked by all and will be sadly missed in the family circle.

A peculiar incident in regard to Mr. Husmann’s death is the fact that his wife also died rather suddenly, she taking ill while sitting at the dinner table in their home in 1913 and expiring a short time later.

We join the many friends of the bereaved in extending sympathy to them in their sadness.
