1916 :: Death of Pauline Hansen



Oakdale Community Shocked by Sudden Death of Popular Girl

Oakdale, Tex., Jan. 25. -- Our community was shocked and grieved last Sunday evening by the unexpected death of Miss Pauline Hansen. She was visiting her brother, John Hansen, of this place, when she was taken ill with la grippe, and it was not thought that she was in a dangerous condition until Saturday. She grew worse rapidly, until Sunday evening, at 6 p.m. she breathed her last, surrounded by her loving mother, sisters and friends. . . . Uncle Silas. Rockdale Reporter and Messenger, January 27, 1916
