EDITH ELDA (KOPP) KELLER
Mrs. Adam Keller died at the hospital in St. Joe at about 8:30 a.m. on Monday. She had gone thru an operation for abdominal tumors, and was thot to be doing at least fairly well. There was a telephone message came early that morning saying that she had rested pretty well during the night, but this was closely followed by another telling of her passing away. The deceased was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Geo. C. Kopp, and a sister of Mrs. Ralph Leonard and Mrs. Roy Williamson and of Ross and Fred Kopp. The whole community sympathizes with the husband and children thus suddenly motherless.
Funeral services were held Wednesday at 2:30 at the church and interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
