She was taken to the hospital Tuesday afternoon of last week when she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage while fisiting Mrs. John Larson. About 10 o'clock that night she lapsed into a coma from which she never roused. All her children, called at her request, were present when death came.
Rosa wanted everyone to call her Taunte which is the German word for Auntie.
