Eder, Lena (21 June 1874 - 18 Jan. 1960)

Mrs. Lena Eder died of complications at the home of her son, Floyd, in Colby Monday morning at the age of 85 years. The Christian Mothers Society held a rosary service Tuesday evening at the Lulloff Funeral Home and a general rosary service was held Wednesday night. Funeral services are being held this Thursday morning in St. Mary’s Catholic church, Rev. John B. Pinion officiating, and internment will be made in the Colby Catholic cemetery.

Mrs. Eder was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic church and its Christian Mother’s Society. She was a faithful member of St. Mary’s Catholic church and was well known for her willingness to perform her duties honestly and well, and, being of a kindly and friendly disposition, she had many friends who will miss her.
