Tubbs, Corrine Lena (Feb 17,1933 - April 22,1930)
Corrine Lena, elder daughter of Jesse E. and Lena Tubbs, was born Feb. 17,1933 at Humbird. At the age of four years she moved to Eleva with her parents and has lived there since. She started school at the age of six, and also attended Lutheran Sunday school.
Last February she became ill with measles and from that illness many complications developed. On April 12th she was taken to the Sacred Heart hospital in Eau Claire, where she was given the best of care but to no avail. Being of a cheerful, happy disposition she never complained even though she suffered intensely for many weeks . She passed to the Great Beyond April 22,1930 at four o’clock in the morning. The funeral services were held at the Eleva Lutheran Church on April 24th at 1:00 p. m. The Eleva school attended in a body and four of her classmates were pallbearers and four others flower girls. After the service the remains were brought to the Mentor cemetery, where she was laid at rest.
Little Corrine leaves to mourn her, parents, a sister and a brother, besides many other relatives. The sympathies of all are extended to these in this hour of sorrow.
