Mrs. Durant, 29, Mother of Four Children, Dies

Mrs. Josephine Baker Durant, 29, mother of four children, died at her home near Oak Center Monday, after a brief illness with pneumonia. Her husband is critically ill.

Funeral services for Mrs. Durant were held at 9:30am this morning from St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Waupun, with the Rev. Theodore Eichholz officiating. Burial took place in Calvary Cemetery.

Although Mrs. Durant had a bad cold, she did the farm work and work about the house because her husband was too ill to undertake it. Pneumonia developed and she died Monday.

Josephine Baker was born Sept. 6, 1905, at Marshfield, a daughter of John Baker and Marie McGives Baker. She is survived by her husband, Thomas Baker, and by four small children.

Mr. Durant was to have been taken to a sanitarium at Oshkosh Tuesday, but was too ill to be moved.

Pallbearers at the funeral were: James Fairbank, Merle Darlrymple, Archie Helgeson, Harry Weideman, Ellis Fairbanks, and Carl Helgeson. A rosary was said a the Hinkamp and Kohls Funeral Parlors last evening.
