Hildagard Elizabeth (4/16/1892 - 6/7/1976)

She was born Edith Louise Schmitt, a German name, but because the German's were not very popular during World War I, and World War II, the family changed their last name to Smith.

Miss Smith worked as a registered nurse in various hospitals throughout Illinois for over 50 years. After she retired as a nurse in Illinois, she moved to Ypsilanti, Mich., where she worked for about 12 years as a nurse before returning to Illinois. She has been living in this area for past 10 years. Miss Smith was a 50-year member of the Order of the Eastern Star, a 50-year member of the Rebekah Lodge of Jonesboro and a member of the Lutheran Church.

She is survived by her niece Norma Louise Matt and several grand nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were conducted Tuesday, May 3 1977 at 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel of Norris and Son Funeral Home with Pastor Albert F. Nyland officiating. Interment was the Jonesboro Cemetery.

Norris and Son Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements.
