The funeral of Mrs. Herman Krell, whose maiden name was Effie Lake, was conducted during the noontide hour, last Sunday, by Rev. Clark of

Deceased was well known in this community [Cunningham], having resided here for many years, and at one time having charge of the postoffice.
She was 32 years of age, and united in marriage with Mr. Krell two months previous to the date above mentioned.

Her last illness was attended with severe suffering, and her condition so complicated that the best efforts of physician and surgeon proved alike unavailing, though the most painstaking efforts were put forth for her recovery. She was conscious of the approaching end, and in accordance with her request the funeral was conducted from her home.

The attendance was unusually large, a procession of carriages nearly half a mile in length following the snow-white casket to the cemetery south of town.

Submitter's note: Burial at Cunningham (Knowlton) Cemetery. Effie A. Lake Smith Krell was believed by the family to be a psychic, with physical manifestation of her abilities.
