Mrs. Leonard E. Axtell passed away at the Blair Hospital on August 13, 1942, following a heart attack. She had, for several years, been subject to high blood pressure and it finally took its toll.

As Fredricka Emilie Storm, she was born in Germany on March 12, 1883, and with her parents and two brothers she came to America when she was five years of age. The family came first to South Omaha and a few years later they moved to this county which since that time has been her home.

Before her marriage, for sixteen years, she was in the employ of Mrs. T.C. Hilton, working as saleslady in the millinery and ladies’ ready-to-wear business which Mrs. Hilton conducted until her death in 1928.

In 1926 deceased was married to Leonard E. Axtell of Blair and they continued to make Blair their home, living on South Walker Avenue all the years of their married life.

Mrs. Axtell was a woman of rare ability, serious and kindhearted she stood ready at any time to help a friend in distress or encourage those who were down-hearted.

Besides the husband she leaves a brother, Edward Storm, of Blair both of whom will grieve deeply their loss.

Funeral services were held last Monday at 2 p.m. from the Campbell Mortuary with the minister of the Christian Church, Earl Grice, officiating and interment was made in the Blair cemetery.
