    Obituary of Sikke Westra (d. 8 Feb 1917) that appeared in the Sioux Center Nieuwsblad.

    [Last week: Thursday, S. Westra, was suddenly snatched away by death. On the way to the train station, he suddenly strained opposite the printing office and was a corpse. It was about nine o'clock in the evening. Dr. De Pree was alerted and stated that death was caused by heart failure. Mrs. Westra was in Sioux City, where a daughter had been operated upon in the hospital. She was informed of the sad news by Rev. De Pree of Sioux City. The deceased was brought to the house of his children, Mr. and Mrs. L. Brandsma, and from there was Monday to the burial place at the church from one to and half past two. Interest and participation was a general.

    Our sympathy to the widow and children.]
