Zelma Irene Knight
Miss Zelma Knight, fifteen-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mose Knight of Russ, died Monday night at the Lebanon hospital from an attack of appendicitis.
The young lady suffered an acute attack of the trouble about two weeks ago and waited a few days before undergoing an operation.
She was in a serious condition when brought to the hospital but for a time it was thought she had a slight chance for recovery. But a change for the worse came and although a hard fight was made to save her life, she died Monday night.
The body was taken to the family home Tuesday.
On Wednesday funeral services were held at the White Oak Pond church, conducted by Rev. J A. Russell of Phillipsburg.
Besides the parents, she leaves three brothers, a sister, five half-brothers and two half-sisters.
