Funeral services were conducted by Rev. F.N. Wright at Ellison Sunday at 11 o'clock a.m. The church was more than filled with sympathizing neighbors and friends. The singing was by a quartet composed of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gann, Mrs. John Kane and Mr. W.M. Yoho. The floral tributes were many and beautiful. His remains were followed by a large crowd of people and were laid to rest in the Ellison cemetery to await the resurrection morn. The family have the sympathy of the community in this sad bereavement.
The men's adult Bible class of the Methodist church will hold their regular monthly devotional and business meeting at the church Sunday afternoon, May 12. Mr. C.J. Anderson is leader.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus Anderson and daughter Miss Hannah with Mr. and Mrs. Harry Anderson of Burlington and Mr. George Anderson of Chicago came to attend the funeral of Thompson Anderson, Sunday.
