Jens Peterson (sic), about 59, died suddenly about 6 o'clock Monday evening in the yard at his home in Ruskin. He had just driven the tractor into the yard and collapsed as he got to the ground. He has had heart trouble for a number of years and under a physicians care for much of this time. He is survived by his wife, a son, Magnus, at home; and two daughters, Mrs. Carla Jensen of Ruskin, and Sarah of Omaha. Another son preceded him in death. Funeral arrangements are still pending.

Mr. and Mrs. Jens Petersen received word the first of the week of the death of their son, Cpl. Ira Petersen, on March 18, while serving with the armed forces in Italy. This is the first casualty reported among boys from our community and causes a feeling of sadness to every one. Sincere sympathy is extended to the bereaved.
