Mrs. Martha Ferrenburg Who Died Monday Night Was a Native of Ballville
Mrs. Martha Ferrenburg, 77, an esteemed and respected pioneer resident, died Monday evening at 6:45 at her home, 121 Wilson avenue. Death was due to heart trouble and complications. Her condition had been critical for a week. Mrs. Ferrenburg had practically been an invalid for the past nine years following a fall in which she sustained a fracture of the hip. She suffered severely with rheumatism during that period and the rheumatism affected her seriously. She became ill a week ago Monday with what was believed to be a slight cold but the condition became critical within a short time and steadily grew worse.
The funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 7:30 from the house. Rev. J. B. Weygandt, pastor of the St. Mark's Lutheran church, will officiate and burial will follow in Oakwood cemetery.
