Besides her many friends, Mrs. Danforth leaves to mourn her departure one niece, Mrs. Ruth Wallace, Council Bluffs; two nephews Arthur Decker, Council Bluffs and M. L. Decker, Sioux City; two sisters-in-law, Mrs. Ida Decker, Lake City and Mrs. Lena Haynes, Council Bluffs; two step-brothers, Walter Somerby, Long Beach, Calif., and Eugene Somerby, San Bernardino, Calif.
