Box 280, Osawatomie

James, 62, raised hogs
Wheat and milo
Liked to read and
Tinker with mechanics

Niki Hamme, 47,
Died Tuesday,
July 8 at home
Service will be held

At the age of 99
Leola Ninneman joined
In her own words
“The man of my dreams”

A member of two monthly
Peanuckle groups
Passed away Saturday
Friends may call 9am

And there we go
In lieu of flowers
A memorial print
On four sparse lines
