Lettie Kendall

Mrs. Lettie Dunn, aged 66, died at 5:30 o'clock yesterday morning at the home of her son Rollie in Perryton. Mrs. Dunn, it is believed, had suffered a number of paralytic strokes during the past year, the last one occurring about six weeks ago when she fell and broke a hip. Since that time she had been staying at the Rollie Dunn home. The immediate cause of her death was pneumonia. Mrs. Dunn, Who had long been a resident of Perryton, is survived by three sons, Ennis and Rollie of Perryton and Forrest of Newton, Iowa, and a number of grandchildren. Funeral services, although the day has not yet been definitely decided upon, will probably be held Sunday afternoon in the Hamlet Presbyterian church of which she was a member.
