CLEVELAND (AP) - Helga Sandburg Crile, an author and the youngest of three daughters of poet and Lincoln biographer Carl Sandburg, has died at her home near Cleveland. She was 95.

The Fioritto Funeral Service says Crile died at her Cleveland Heights home on Sunday night. Her family says she had been in failing health.

Crile published 17 books, including novels, memoirs and poetry. She also typed manuscripts for her Pulitzer Prize-winning father, who dedicated several books to her and wrote poems in her honor.

Her survivors include a son, a daughter and two step-daughters. The funeral home says a memorial service will be held in the spring.
