    • Woman Found Dead In Home

      Mrs. Ernest C. Youngstrom, 67, 838 South Leebrick street, died about 1 p.m. Thursday (April 21, 1949) in the gas-filled kitchen of her home.

      Her body was found by her husband, [the] Des Moines county recorder, when he came home for lunch about 12:30 p.m. Efforts by a fire department rescue squad failed to revive the woman and she was pronounced dead half an hour later.

      Youngstrom said his wife had been in ill health for some time.

      He told officers that he found the doors and windows of the home tightly shut and all burners of the gas stove in the kitchen turned on. The body was on the kitchen floor.

      Leo Snyder, deputy county coroner, ruled the death a suicide. Mrs. Youngstrom was a native of Burlington. She was born February 16, 1882. Surviving are a son, Ralph, of Burlington; 2 daughters, Mrs. Marjorie Hirleman, Flint, Michigan, and Mrs. Marian Krekel, Burlington; 4 grandchildren; 2 brothers, Oscar and Victor Bloom of Burlington. The body was taken to the Burnett Wallen funeral home.
