Miss Herian was a faithful member of St. Mary’s church and attended services regularly as long as her health permitted.

Surviving are two sisters and a brother: Mrs. Mary Blakeslee of Minneapolis, Minn., Mrs. Anna Maxwell of Elk Falls, Kan., and Henry Herian of Neillsville. Also surviving are several nieces and nephews.
