Grandma Agnes


Tucked away in a small bible Dad owned, I found the death notice and obituary for my Grandma Agnes Arne-Darby. I was only 4-years-old at the time, but recall a great many details about the days before and after she passed away.

I was later told that she died from a cancer — believed to have been cause by a piece of medical gauze left behind after a previous surgery.

Of course, I have had no way of confirming either the surgery event or the gauze story. I think she is buried in Fort Dodge, Iowa — but I could also be mistaken on this point too.
