The death of Miss Leola C. Ostroot, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.E. Ostroot, was a great shock to her many friends. Miss Ostroot was taken ill Wednesday of last week, going home from her work as cashier in the Creighton store with severe pains in her head. She suffered intensely from this cause, passing into a state of insensibility from which she never aroused, death taking place Tuesday morning [April 2].

The funeral services were held Thursday morning, a brief service at the home and services at 10:30 at the Norwegian Lutheran church, being conducted by Rev. Grimsrud, assisted by Rev. P.J. Luvaas of Coeur d'Alene.

All immediate members of Miss Ostroot's family were present at the funeral except one brother, Conrad, who some weeks ago enlisted in the navy and has been assigned to special training at Harvard University in radio work.
