Funeral services were held at St. Dominic Church Thursday afternoon.
Mrs. Ratermann, who is suffering from diphtheria, is recovering. The quarantine is not yet lifted but the patient is not in any great danger at this time.
There are a number of other cases of diphtheria in this community, all of which are quarantined. None however are considered serious.
