Ziemendorf, Alice (19 Dec. 1866 - 31 Jan. 1937)

Mrs. Ed Ziemendorf, a pioneer resident of Sherwood, passed away at her home at 4 o’clock Sunday afternoon, Jan. 31 after being seriously ill for a week.

Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock in the Sherwood community church and burial was made in the Sherwood Cemetery.
