Blockton News, Thursday June 2, 1921 [p. 1]
Obituary - Donna Mae, second child of Byron and Fae Hibbs, was born at Blockton, Iowa, July 24, 1912, and passed away at the Methodist hospital in Des Moines Saturday morning at 8 o'clock, May 28, 1921, at the age of 8 years, 10 months and 4 days.

Donna had been in poor health for about eight weeks, being afflicted with heart-leakage, and was taken to the hospital from her home at Norwalk two weeks prior to her death. On Friday she was successfully operated upon to relieve the afflicted organ but the relief was only temporary and she passed away the next morning as above stated.

She leaves to mourn her loss besides her parents, a brother and sister, Robert D. aged 11 years and Lenna Merle 7 years of age, and other relatives.

The body was brought to Blockton Sunday forenoon, accompanied by the mother, brother and sister and an uncle, Ira Hibbs of Des Moines.

Funeral services were held at the Christian church Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. E. E. Stringfellow, and interment was made in Rose Hill cemetery.

The sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
