Bob Sled Funeral Snowbound Roads Necessitate Use of Odd Funeral Conveyances

Allen County will experience its first bob-sled funeral in many years tomorrow, when sheds will be used to bear the casket and to carry those attending the funeral of Mrs. Dorothy Lahrman, in Pleasant township tomorrow morning. The roads in that section are so badly drifted that they are impassable for either horse drawn hearses and carriages or motor funeral conveyances, so the family finally decided to use sleds in lieu of regulation funeral equipment. A big bob-sled will serve as a hearse and the pallbearers and mourners will also be conveyed from the home to the church in sleds.
