Transcription of the obituary of Mrs. Herman B. Hackett, which appeared
in the Park Rapids Enterprise, 5 August 1926.
Mrs. H.B. Hackett
Faithful Wife and Mother Called to Rest Yesterday
After Short Illness
Mrs. H.B. Hackett died at her home in Park
Rapids Wednesday at the age of sixty-three years. Death came after but a
few days confinement, altho for several months it has been known that
her health was being gradually taken from her. Until last Friday she was
able to be up and about the home, ever mindful of the duties of the Home
and needs of those about her.
On Friday evening sharp turn
toward critical conditions took place, and distant relatives were
notified and the children asked to come home.
Mr. and Mrs. H.B.
Hackett and children came to Hubbard county twenty-four years ago from
Wisconsin, locating on a farm in Straight River township. They lived
there until about fifteen years ago, when they moved into town to give
their children the advantage of better schooling, and have ever since
made their home here.
There were seven children in the family
including two sets of twins. All the children are living, and have grown
to maturity and are taking their places in the social and business
affairs of life.
The children are Mrs. Herb Day, of Straight
River, Mrs. Fred Wheaton of Nevis, Glen Hackett of Akeley, Miss Alice
Hackett of Park Rapids, Allen Hackett of Tulsa, Okla., Mrs. Hans
Anderson of Culbertson, Mont., and Miss LaMae Hackett of Park Rapids.
All of the children are home, to share with each other in the
sad loss that each must feel, and help to bear the sorrow that follows
the departure of a good Christian mother from the home.
funeral will be held from the residence Firday at 10 o’clock a.m.
