The city of Crete was shocked to hear of the death of Miss Lucile Farleigh, which took place on Sunday afternoon at Liberty, Nebraska. For about two months Miss Farleigh had been seriously ill. In spite of the best care of local physicians and the Omaha hospital, she passed away at her mother's home in Liberty on May 25 where she was taken a few days ago from her home in Crete.

Funeral services were held at Liberty on Wednesday afternoon, May 28 and were conducted by Reverend Harold Cooper, pastor of the First Congregational church of Crete, of which Miss Farleigh was a respected member. During her illness she was ministered to by this church, both in Crete and also in the Omaha hospital.

She will not only be missed from the membership of the church, but especially by the members of the Crete Axis Club, of which club she was formerly secretary. In 1927 she attended the national convention, which was held in Oakland, California, as the official delegate of the Crete Axis Club. A large number of the Axis Club members attended the funeral at Liberty, among them being the following: Miss Mathilda Menne, Mrs. Elizabeth Scott, Miss Agnes Herget, Miss Lillie Mullin, Miss Clara Bathen, Miss Myrtie Benne, and Mrs. Blanche Schlaebitz. The Sack Lumber Company, at which place Miss Farleigh was employed as stenographer, was represented by Mr. Philip Sack. Others who attended were Mr. J.H. Behne and Mr. Ed Wilding.

Lucile Farleigh was born in Johnson, Nebraska on July 29, 1897 and died in Liberty, Nebraska on May 25, 1930 at the age of 31 years. When only seven years of age she moved with her mother to Liberty. It was from the high school of Liberty that she graduated in 1917, and then she took the complete business course of the Nebraska Business College.

Her business career included nearly two years at Telluride, Colorado, five years with the Crete Mills, and over two years with the Sack Lumber Company. She leaves two sisters and one brother as well as her mother and step-father to mourn her loss. These are: Mrs. John Nix of Lincoln; Mrs. Gladys Bell of Waverly; Mr. Walter Farleigh of Lincoln; her father and mother are Mr. and Mrs. William Lynch of Liberty at whose home Miss Farleigh passed away.

As a business woman she was a faithful worker, being very efficient in her chosen career. As a member of the Axis Club she was honored and respected for her fine qualities of social fellowship. As a member of the church she was a good Christian woman whose life witnesses to the ideals for which she stood. She was taken in the prime of life but her unfailing courage and kindly disposition will long be remembered by a host of friends through the city of Crete. Interment was in the cemetery at Liberty.
