VELMA LOBDELL DEAD.
The painful task of giving notice of the second death from the family of O.W. Lobdell falls upon the Enterprise. The sympathizing friends had not recovered from the shock occasioned by Arthur's death which occurred January 31, when on Friday, February 7, the news of the death of Velma, a victim of the same disease, startled the whole community. To the stricken family this second stroke comes with added force on account of the quarantine which for the safety of the community it was thought best to place over their home. Thus shut up to themselves without the intercourse with friends and neighbors that might tend in some degree to lighten their load of sorrow, they have been compelled to bear their heavy burden alone. To them the Enterprise can give the assurance that in their distress they have not been forgotten, and while their friends have not been privileged to speak their words of sympathy, these words have been none the less sincere.
Velma M. Lobdell was born at Avilla, Indiana, November 26, 1878. She came with her parents to Mulhall in March, 1899, where she has lived and enjoyed the comforts of home, until the 7th day of February, 1902, when she departed this life. She leaves a father and mother and sister, Mrs. Edna Henry, who lives in Indiana, and a brother Walter, the youngest of the family, who is here, besides a host of friends who mourn her loss, though the loss to them is her gain.
There was no public funeral but her body was tenderly placed by the side of that of her brother in Rose Lawn cemetery.
