Truck Victim Buried Here
Fatally Injured Saturday when Struck by a Delivery Truck in Sioux City.
Sioux City Journal: Funeral services for Ada Florence Crubaugh, 5 year old daughter of Mr. & Mrs. James B. Crubaugh, 611 Pearl Street, fatally injured Saturday when struck by a delivery truck, will be held at 2:30 pm today at Perasso Bros. undertaking parlors. Rev. Leslie Jacobson, pastor of the First Baptist Church will officiate. The body will be taken to LeMars, IA for burial.
It's noted that the obituary anticipated that Ada would be buried in LeMars, Iowa, but it would appear that either the newspaper article is incorrect or she was relocated to Lake Cemetery since there is a separate headstone for her. Ada Florence, in addition to being named in some of the family groupings, has her own separate headstone listing her years of birth and death. It also gives her ages at death as 5 years and 4 months. The August 1918 birth month is calculated from that inscription.
