Douglas Budget - January 13, 1944

Mrs. Louisa Black, wife of Jake Black, passed away at the Memorial hospital shortly before noon today. She was 68 years of age.

Owing to the late hour and inability to contact members of the family it is impossible at this time to secure material for a complete obituary.

Louisa Morris was born in Republic county, Kansas, on March 1, 1875. On October 14, 1902, at Fairbury, Nebr., she was united in marriage to Jake Black. The family came to Wyoming in 1928. For many years they lived on a place near Esterbrook, moving to Douglas in 1940 and since then residing in the Brownfield Addition.

She is survived by her husband and six children, Mrs. Alta Crubbs of Corvaliis, Ore., Mrs. Atha Carlin of Mahaska, Kan., Mrs. Martha Sater of Wheatland, Cyrus Black of Esterbrook, Archie of Glendo and Leonard of Chugwater.

No funeral arrangements have been made, according to the Hofmann Mortuary, who has charge of the remains.
