Mrs. Hoambrecker

Funeral services for Mrs. Elsie Hoambrecker, 71, who died Monday, will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. from the Wallen chapel with Rev. E. S. Woodard in charge. Burial Will be in Aspen Grove cemetery.

A number of inaccuracies in the account of Mrs. Hoambrecker's death were included in Monday's Hawk-Eye Gazette. Her Husband's name, listed as Halbert, should have been Albert; a son, listed as Horace, should have been Forrest. She was married to her first husband, Garrett Hanson, in 1901 rather than 1910 as listed.
