The many friends of Henry Jensen and family are sympathizing with them in the loss of their seven-months-old baby, Cora Mae Jensen, who died October 17, from stomach trouble. The funeral services were held Sunday at the home, Rev. G.B. Warren officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Blair cemetery. It was the first automobile funeral procession held in Washington county.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Jensen are mourning the loss of their seven-months-old daughter, Cora May, who died suddenly Saturday morning. So quickly was the little one stricken that few of the family knew of her illness until death had occurred.

The father was in Lincoln at the time having gone there to attend Grand Lodge of the I.O.O.F. When the seriousness of the child's condition dawned on his brothers, frantic efforts were made to reach him. Before he could reach home death had occurred.

The little body was laid to rest in the Blair cemetery Sunday after services had been conducted at the residence by Rev. Warren.

Little Cora May, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Jensen, of River View farm, died early Saturday morning after a severe illness of less than one day. A very few knew of the baby's illness until informed of her death, and only a small number of relatives were with the grief-stricken mother when the little one passed away, just at daybreak Saturday morning.

Mr. Jensen was away from home at the time, having gone to Lincoln to attend grand lodge of the Odd Fellows, and could not reach home until the little one had passed away.

The funeral services were held at the home north of Blair, at 1 o'clock p.m. Sunday, and were in charge of Rev. G.B. Warren, the newly arrived Methodist minister. The old neighbors from the Papio neighborhood furnished the music and four little cousins of the baby, Edna and Mildred Jensen, Blanch Reeh and Odessa Svendgaard acted as pall-bearers.

The flowers sent to the stricken home were many and beautiful, the little casket being completely banked in beautiful white blossoms of every kind. A large number of sympathetic friends, relatives and neighbors attended the services and accompanied the grief-stricken parents to the cemetery where the little one was tenderly laid to rest.
