---Mrs. Joe Billings, seventy, of La Plata, mother of Mrs. Velma Burgess of the Journal Apartments in Kirksville, died yesterday at a hospital in Pomona, California where she had been for the past week with a broken leg.
---Mrs. Billings and her husband had been spending the winter in Pomona with another daughter, Mrs. Marie O'Conner. She fell a week ago Friday and broke her leg and was thought to be getting along nicely when apparently something developed which caused her sudden death. Her daughter and husband had left the hospital just a few minutes before her death.
---The body is being brought back to La Plata for funeral and burial services which will be announced later.
---Besides her husband and her daughters, Mrs. Burgess and Mrs. O'Conner, Mrs. Billings leaves a son, Lloyd Billings, of Pomona, California; a sister, Mrs. J. Mon Thompson of Kirksville and a brother, George W. Cook, of Ethel.
