Miss Nettie Case Joins Eternal Caravan On High

The early hours of Saturday morning, February 7 1920 marked the passing of one of Blairstown’s much loved daughters, Miss Nettie Case, at the home of her mother, Mrs. Margaret Case on Locust street. Miss Nettie was a daughter of the late C. A. Case and Mrs. Margaret Case, was born on the farm southwest of town where she grew to beautiful womanhood, always at home with them in their advancing years never very rugged but always happy and bright. With the advancing years it became necessary for the parents to leave the strenuous life of the farm. She moved into town with them and became one of our very own, entering into the life of the town, always ready to do her part in what ever she was called upon to do. She was a member of the Presbyterian church, and did her part towards its work and support and was a member of the social circle. She also took a deep interest in the Daughters of the Revolution and was a member of the National Society of the D. A. R. As time passed on her health failed and she became a shut-in. During those years her beautiful character shone at its best.

Always suffering, she loved to see her friends and always had a bright smile for them. Youth is prone to forget the shut-in but Nellie numbered among her friends many young girls of the town, who loved her and will profit by her fortitude and bright ways during this period of her life. Nothing was left undone to bring her back to health. All that medical skill could do was done. Thru all her suffering her mind was clear to the last. Asked the nurse if it was a nice day and telling her mother how sorry she was to leave her, at 9:30 o’clock she fell asleep. The blow falls especially hard upon the aged mother as she will be left alone in the home. Besides the mother she leaves three sisters one nephew and one niece to mourn the passing of this brave spirit. The sisters are: Mrs. Agnes Goss, Bell Fauch, S. D., Mrs. Addie Morgan, Waterloo, Mrs. Claudre, Washburn.

The funeral service in charge of her pastor, Rev. A. J. Meierhoff was held at the home on Monday at 2 o’clock. Mrs. Alta Edwards sang Beautiful Isle of Somewhere, accompanied by Miss Jessie. Interment was made beside her father in the family lot in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. The floral offerings were beautiful and profuse. The pallbearers were life long friends and neighbors, Fred Firman, Chas. Hevener, A. R. Heck, Frank Kouba, D. J. Harden and Chris Rieke.

Those from a distance who were here to attend the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Morgan, Waterloo, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Washbum and son Charles of Chicago, Mrs. Frank Kiester, Cedar Rapids, Mrs. Ed. Bricker and Mrs. Ben Herring, of Elberon, Henry Runstead and Mrs. Burns of Belle Plaine.
