Although doctors and nurses at the Bloomington Hospital waged a bitter fight with death last night in an attempt to save the life of little Joseph Edward Hamm, the two year old tot died at 10:35 p.m. of shock resulting from burns he had sustained yesterday morning.  He toppled from his tricycle into a tub of scalding water on the floor of the Knight Ridge Road home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Hamm.  Silently, prayerfully, the grief stricken young parents had kept their anxious vigil through the afternoon and early evening hours.  The tiny form, swathed in bandages, had lain quietly on the be, released by medication from some of the painful agony the burns had inflicted.  The tragedy stunned young mother who had raced more than a mile to get her baby to medical aid in the hope of saving his life, went sadly about the task of arranging funeral services for him.  The husband, who had left his work at the Indian Creosoting Plant to join his wife at the tot’s bedside in the hospital sustained her as they left the Day Funeral home to return to their little residence.  Tomorrow morning the tiny casket will be returned there, too.  Funeral services for the blonde baby will be held Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the Knight Ridge Church. Burial will be in the adjoining cemetery – only a short distance from the family residence.  A corduroy suit hid from sight the painful extensive burns which claimed the tot’s life.  The casket, lying in state at the Day mortuary this afternoon and evening, was viewed by many sympathetic friends of the family who had read of the tragedy in the Wednesday’s World Telephone.  In addition to the parents, the little boy is survived by a year old sister, Mary Katherine.  He would have been three years old July 20.  As a formality, Dr. Robert E. Lyons, Monroe county coroner, inquired into the tot’s death, ruling it to be accidental. – World Telephone, 03 February 1949 – shared by Dorothy Hamm
