Ulness, Jeanette (28 SEP 1925 - 10 JAN 1946)

By Mrs. Clarence Olson - Frozen Body of Former Humbird Girl is Found - Local friends of Miss Jeanette Ulness, 20, former resident of this area, were shocked this week by word of the finding of her frozen body on January 13. 

The body was found in the driveway of the Edward Hogness farm, about one and one-half miles southwest of Foster, by the driver of a Foster Creamery company milk truck.  The temperature was 6 below zero at that time. 

Miss Ulness, who graduated from the eighth grade at the Oak School, near here, had gone to a party on a farm near Foster the previous evening.  Eau Claire county officials were told that she left the party about 3 a.m.  When she did not return, one of the young men started to search for her; but with no success. 

Miss Ulness, the authorities said, was subject to diabetic attacks, and they expressed the belief that she had been stricken by such an attack.  

She lived with her parents on a farm west of Humbird for a number of years, moving to Osseo about two years ago.
