Brown, Ruth (1929 - 2 June 1936)
Ruth Brown, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Brown, passed away Tuesday morning at six o’clock at the Marshfield hospital, pneumonia followed by pleurisy, being the cause of her departure to the distant shore. The little girl was six years old last November. Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon, at 1:30 P.M. at the Lulloff undertaking parlors and at 2:00 P.M. at St. John’s Evangelical church, Rev. E. Becker officiating.
Bright, happy and cheerful, Ruth carried sunshine with her wherever she went. She had always a smile and a pleasant word for her friends. Her death comes as a dark shadow to friends and to her relatives.
