Saturday, Sept. 9, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Percy LaBree of Midland. Elder Allen Schruer of Gaylord officiated and masses of floral tribute gave evidence of the love and esteem in which Mrs. Hagstrom was held. The body lay in state at the church for the half hour preceding the services. Elder J. E. Bennett opened the service with an invocation and Mrs. J. E. Bennett and Bernard Tubbs, accompanied by Mrs. Clifford Tubbs, sang "Take It to the Lord in Prayer" and "Abide with Me!" Elder Schruer quietly brought a message of comfort to the family and friends assembled, pointing to them the home of the future by references from the Bible concerning the resurrection and life after death. He spoke feelingly of Mrs. Hagstrom whom he had known since her girlhood and of her personality and her ability as a mother. John Brunke, Edward Crawford, Walter Davis, Laurence Tobey, Henry Grinnell and William Tubbs acted a§ pallbearers and interment was made in the family plot at Maple Grove cemetery. Relatives attending from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. Earl Hagstrom and Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Hagstrom, all of Flint; Mr. and Mrs. Percy LaBree and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Leewart Boynton and Miss Annabel Hagstrom, all of Midland; Mrs. Floy Stephens of Ludington, Mr. and Mrs. Rupert Stephens of Scottville, Mr. and Mrs/Herman Beyer of Victory, Mrs. Alpha Powers of Portland, Ore., and friends from Midland, Saginaw, Victory and other points, besides many from Freesoil. Minnie Hukill was born in January, 1876, in the community known as Sauble Settlement and she attended Darr school. Later she was united in marriage to Amel Hagstrom of Freesoil village and became the mother of two sons and three daughters. When a young woman she became a member of the Latter Day Saint church. Mrs. Hagstrom enjoyed music, good sermons and lectures. She •was patient and kind and made many friends, all of whom will say, "She was a good woman." She was a good mother also. Her husband preceded her in death in 1927. Mrs. Hagstrom's health began to fail more than a year ago, but she bravely kept on at her work and responsibilities long after she was unfit for them. She went to Flint a few weeks ago and later to her daughter's home in Midland. She will be greatly missed by her many friends and relatives who sincerely regret her passing.
