Had Been Ill With Spinal Meningitis for Ten Days
The people of Kennard and vicinity are mourning the passing away of Miss Opal Wright at her home in Kennard Sunday morning after a ten days illness of spinal meningitis contracted while teaching at the Mapleton, Iowa high school. The deceased was born at Herman, June 6, 1905, and the following year she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Wright to Kennard.
She grew to womanhood at Kennard and was endeared to everyone by her friendliness and cheerfulness, counting her friends by her acquaintances wherever her work or social duties called her. She was a graduate of the Kennard high school and of the University of Nebraska. For three years she taught in the Washington county schools and had begun her second year's work in the Mapleton, Iowa, High School. She had been a teacher in the Kennard Methodist Sunday school for a number of years.
Surviving her besides her bereaved parents are her grandmother, Mrs. Ida Wright, and a host of other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were conducted from the Kennard Methodist church Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock with Rev. McMalen of Lincoln officiating. Burial was in the Kennard cemetery.
