The friends here of the Ogren family will be grieved to learn of the death of D. W. Ogren of near lake View, which occurred Sunday, March 27, 1927.
Since August 1926 Mr. Ogren has been suffering with cancer of the jaw, starting from a sore under the lower plate of his false teeth. At first it was thought to be but a canker sore but when it did not respond to the usual treatments Mr. Ogren went to Rochester and finally had an operation at Cherokee. From that time on his suffering did not appear to be so severs, but the cancer was doing its deadly work. For the past two weeks only has it been necessary for them to have a trained nurse in charge, prior to that time he was able to go to the doctors office to have the afflicted place dressed.
