Becker County
Minnesota, USA
Death: Apr. 15, 1946
Frazee
Becker County

Robert Eugene, son of Eugene and Mable (Erb) Shipman. He leaves to mourn his early and sudden departure, his mother, one sister, Ruth Ann, 2 brothers, Dean and Richard, his grandparents (Mr. and Mrs. David Erb), and many other relatives and friends.
Father and son met death together while in the silo. Silage that had frozen to the side of the silo during the winter, fell, covering and smothering them.

A double funeral was held April 18 at the Lake Region Church, near Detroit Lakes, Minn.
