The remains of Mrs. Ted McConnachie, nee Frances Burgum, who died Thursday in Grand Forks after a two days illness of scarlet fever, were brought from Grand Forks Sunday by auto hearse and interred in the Arthur cemetery after a short service by Rev. Sage by the side of her father A. T. Burgum. The pallbearers were six young men, all nephews of the deceased. Messers Albert Farnham, Arthur Burgum, Harry Farnham, Alton Burgum, Ceil Bayard, Thomas See.

Mrs. McConnachie was the youngest child in a large family, three brothers, J. A., T. O. and W. H. Burgum and five sisters, Mrs. C. F. Bayard, Mrs. E. E. Farnham, Mrs. John See, all of Arthur and Mrs. Zana MacAdams and Mrs. Alex Scott of Minneapolis and her mother Mrs. A. T. Burgum of Minneapolis survive her.

A devoted husband, Mr. McConnachie and two little sons, Robert aged two and Gordon aged six months are left sorely bereaved of a loving wife and mother. Mrs. McConnachie was born and raised in Arthur and was 28 years old at the time of her death. She was a graduate of Hunter high school and of Moorhead Normal and taught school at Perham, Minn. and McGrath, Minn. until her marriage to Mr. McConnachie of Perham, Minn. 4 years ago.
She joined the Arthur M. E. church at the age of 14 and was an active member of the Sunday School and choir until her father's death ten years ago when her mother and sister moved to Minnesota.An impressive memorial service was held in honor of her at the M. E. church at Arthur, Rev. W. D. Sage officiating. A choir of ten voices sang those beautiful hymns so full of comfort to the believer, "Abide With Me," "What a Friend we have in Jesus," "My Faith looks up to Thee." A touching and beautiful duet ŇAbsentÓ was played by L. S. Burgum and Miss Roberts. Rev. Sage spoke words of comport and consolation in his memorial sermon.

Many hearts were saddened by the sudden departure of this beautiful and capable young woman who was called home in the glory of her youth from those she loved and served so devotedly.
