Alice Lodanna Popejoy

Alice Popejoy died while a student at Hartford City High School, Hartford City, Indiana.

"She was a friend indeed

With all a friend's best virtues shining bright;

It was no broken reed you leaned on,

When you trusted to her might."

"Alice Popejoy, daughter of Mrs. Sarah Redding, died at her home on West Harrison street Christmas day, following a brief illness. She was born near Hartford City March 23, 1904, and resided their until about seven years ago when she came to this city.

During these years, until her untimely death she attended the public schools of Hartford City. She was a member of the sophomore class and an active worker in the Intermediated Christian Endeavor of the United Brethren church.

Alice was quiet and retiring, yet, because of her sunny disposition, she won many friends. She was an ambitious student and a true friend.

In losing Alice, the school lost one of its best students."
