The funereal service for Mrs. Ellen Brennan age seventy-seven years, who passed away at the home of her son Ed Brennan, Saturday morning, was held from the family residence Sunday afternoon with Rev. L. F. Dykal of St. Mary's Catholic Church officiating and internment was made at Prairie Lea Cemetery, by the side of her husband the late Larry Brennan who preceded her to the grave in 1911. A selected choir sang appropriate funeral hymns and her grave was covered with beautiful floral tributes.

Active pallbearers were W. B. Francis, A. L. Niebuhr, F. L. Ansler, C. L. Wilkins, H.G. Wittbecker, T.L. Low and D.C. Williams.
