Death of Miss Lena Etta Cave.

It was with surprise and regret that the death of Miss Lena Etta Cave, was announced in Olathe, late Saturday night. She had been ill only about one week, death being caused by pneumonia. The funeral service was held at the home in Overland Park, Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock and burial made in the old cemetery at Aubry.

Lena was born February 18, 1890, and was at the time of her death 29 years, 11 months, and six days old. At the time of her death she was employed in the millinery of the B. Adler store in Kansas City.

Lena lived with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Cave, in Olathe for many years, until they removed to Overland Park, two years ago. Both here and in the new home, she attended the Presbyterian church and was a member of the Westminster Guild and other church organizations.

While her death came as a distinct surprise, with its attendant shock, it was no less a profound grief on that account. Lena had a kind and lovable personality and her devoted friends were limited only by the extent of her acquaintance.

She is survived by her parents, a brother, Gail, and a host of relatives and friends who will mourn her death.
