Mrs. June Lambertson, 52, 717 South A street, died at 5:45 o'clock Tuesday evening at her home after an illness of three years.

Born June 11, 1898 in Indianapolis she was the daughter of Adkinson and Ida Davis.  She was married to Clemon Lambertson, July 28, 1917.  He survives.  Mrs. Lambertson was a member of First Baptist church.

Survivors include the husband, two daughters, Mrs. Ruby Walsh, Elwood, and Mrs. Bonnie Wright of Alexandria; two sons, Harold Lambertson of Elwood and Floyd Lambertson of Alexandria; a sister; Mrs. Pansy Decker of Crawfordsville and nine grandchildren.

The body is at the Robert L. Jackley funeral home where friends may call.

Funeral rites will be held at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon at First Baptist church.  The Rev. R.W. Sage, pastor will officiate.  Burial will be made in Elwood City cemetery.

June (DAVIS) LAMBERTSON was my maternal great-grandmother.  Her obituary is another one that I recently rediscovered while researching at the Elwood Public Library.

The obituary states her parentage exactly as is listed on her birth certificate, though I consider it be under dispute.  I continue to research in hopes of finding some court record that could clear it up.
