Leukemia Takes Life Of 3-Yr.-Old Donna Goldsboro
Donna Lou Goldsboro, three-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Goldsboro of Bainbridge township, passed away Tuesday shortly after midnight, her death being due to leukemia, the fatal disease that has caused the death of many young children in recent years.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Lester Banning will be held Friday at 2:00 p.m. at the First Methodist church in Rushville. Interment will be in the Ebenezer (South) cemetery.
Donna Lou, the only child of Melvin and Edith Crum-Goldsboro, had been ill for several weeks, and was for a time a patient at Culbertson hospital, where she was given blood transfusions which afforded temporary improvement. Later she was taken to Barnes hospital in St. Louis, Mo., by Rev. Lester Banning, where her ailment was diagnosed as leukemia. The parents were advised by the physicians that their child could not be expected to live more than a month.
Donna Lou was brought to her home, and facing the grim realization that her death was inevitable, the parents arranged for a pre-Christmas celebration in the home, where the many gifts of relatives and friends brought joy to the little girl.
Donna Lou Goldsboro was born in Rushville, January 16, 1943, and departed this life at the home of her parents in Bainbridge township December 19, 1945, aged 2 years, 11 months, 3 days.
Besides the grief-stricken parents, there survives to mourn the untimely death of this little child, her maternal grandmother, Mrs. James Crum, and her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Goldsboro.
