Death Strikes Family Twice

Lewiston, Idaho, Nov. 30 - Death struck twice on the same day in the South Gate, Calif., home of former Lewiston residents. Shortly after Herman Logan, 63, had died from a sudden heart attack, his daughter, Mrs. Thelma Hensen (as spelled), 33, died from complications at child birth.

Mr. Logan was born in Kansas in 1886 and came west to Lewiston in 1912. He moved to California several years ago, where he made his home until death. He is survived by a brother in Usk, Wash.

Mrs. Hansen (as spelled) was born January 13, 1916, at Lewiston. She graduated from Lewiston high school and earned degrees at both the University of Idaho and Washington State college. She taught at Spirit Lake, Boise, the University of Idaho and at Los Angeles.

She married Norman Hansen in 1945 at Reno, Nev., and they had lived in California since their marriage.

The bodies will arrive together at the Brower-Wann chapel Friday morning. Committal services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Friday at Normal Hill cemetery, the Rev. J. Clarence Orr officiating.
