Funeral services were held at the Arcadia Methodist Church Saturday for Elma Rambo Bellinger, a resident of Valley county for many years. She died May 3 in a Grand Island hospital at the age of 85.
Rev. John Amundsen conducted last rites. Pallbearers were Wilbert Wittmus, Melvin and Dale Bellinger, Max Lybarger, Chester Babcock and Louis Ritz. Burial was in the Arcadia cemetery with Hastings-Pearson Mortuary in charge.
Mrs. Bellinger was born May 7, 1875 at Bushnell, Iowa [sic]. At an early age she united with the Methodist church, remaining active as long as her health permitted. She taught school a number of years in Illinois, later moving to Nebraska with her parents.
