Lex, Florence Erma (4 Jan. 1909 - 6 May 1930)
Florence Erma Lex passed away at the Mirndale Sanitarium Tuesday morning at 5:30 A.M., at the age of 21 years, four months and two days, tuberculosis being the cause of her departure. Erma was born in Colby and received both grade and high school education here. She was a member of the Methodist church and of the R.N.A. She lived in Colby all her life until two and one-half years ago when she moved to Milwaukee with her parents. She worked up until last June when her health failed and she was forced to give up her work. All the care and love that skilled physicians and an anxious household could device and apply for her comfort and assistance were brought into play but her spirit took its flight to that home that Christians believe is the fulfillment of the life everlasting. This is the third child to die, the two oldest children having preceded her in death. She leaves to mourn her departure her parents, one brother, Orville, and one sister, Lorraine. Funeral services will be held at the Methodist church Saturday afternoon, May 10th, at 2:00 o’clock.
