Elkader Register, Thur., 01 Dec. 1898.
At an early hour Tuesday morning the sad news was spread abroad that Hazel, the only child of Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Brown had departed into the sleep that knows no awakening in this life, at 5 o'clock a.m. She had been sick for the past weeks and it was generally thought that she was improving, but Monday night she grew worse until she suddenly passed away, the immediate cause of death being a rupture of the left ventricle of the heart.
Hazel was born Oct. 8th, 1890, and was a little over 8 years of age. Of an affectionate disposition she had entwined herself into the hearts of not only her parents and playmates, but also all who knew her. Would that we could write something that could convey the words of sympathy that is felt by our people for these dear suffering parents. Words of condolence are empty at this time. The heart must wrestle with its grief until nature asserts itself and thoughts of the living take a part of the place of the departed. Hazel, pure in thought and deed, has gone to make up the company of precious jewels. It must be well with her. That is the only comfort at this time.
The funeral services were held this Thursday afternoon at the Congregational church, and was largely attended. Rev. F. L. Fisk officiated assisted by Rev. A. B. Fickle. The pall bearers were young girls, Misses Eva Jack, Maggie Maley, Annie Stemmer, Hilda Grotewohl, Carrie and Lizzie Schmidt. They were attended by about forty children, bearing the many and beautiful floral offerings. The interment was in the East Side cemetery.
