THE WESTERN STAR, 18 January 1918

Miss Lottie Hollenbeck, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Hollenbeck, who were early day settlers in this county, died on Thursday, January 3, 1918, at the base hospital in Ft. Riley where she had been for some time
working as a Red Cross nurse. The funeral was held in her home town (Bethel, Kans.) on the following Sunday. Miss Lottie took up the work of a professional nurse about 13 years ago and and soon became a very
successful and enthusiastic worker in that line. She offered her services to the Red Cross and was assigned to Ft. Riley. It was her intention to go to France within a few weeks. Her death was due to pneumonia, the attack lasting only 42 hours. In all her work as a nurse
she displayed the highest type of consecrated and willing service for others. She seemed to have a natural adaptation for the work, and at the army post she soon became a valuable member of the hospital force. Her
sudden and untimely death called forth from all branches of the army at Riley expressions on the keenest regret and of highest esteem. There were many beautiful tributes to her unselfish and useful life.

Miss Hollenbeck was born in Paola, Kans., on January 31, 1881. Four years later she came with the family to Comanche co. and for about 17 years lived in the eastern part of the county. In her passing away the
great cause of world democracy lost a loyal, capable and untiring worker in the ranks of those who are giving their time and talents that Right and Justice may prevail. The parents, two brothers and one sister survive her.
