Miss Jessie Herbert, Daughter of J. S. Herbert and Wife, of Buck Creek Neighborhood, Found Dead in Bed This Morning.

The community where the young woman was born and spent her life, the Buck Creek neighborhood, was shocked and surprised this morning when the word was passed around that Miss Jessie Herbert, the twenty-four year old daughter of John S. Herbert and wife, had been found dead in bed. The young woman was a cripple and in addition had for years been a victim of periodical fainting spells. It is supposed that it was in one of these she died. Her mother went to call her between seven and eight o’clock this morning and when she opened the door of her room found her dead. A physician, who was called, gave it as his opinion that she had been dead but a few moments when found. The young woman was well liked by everyone and was particularly dear to her relatives because of her afflictions. She was born in the Buck Creek neighborhood. She is survived by her father and mother and eight brothers and sisters. The brothers and sisters are Mrs. L. H. Laartz, Mrs. Charles Beckhart of Draper, S. D., Mrs. Ed Peterson of Gates, Mrs. J. B. Nelson of Gates and Miss Gladys, Clinton, Robert and Ed at home. The sympathy of all goes out to the bereaved ones in their hour of sorrow.

The funeral servies [services] are to be held at one o’clock Sunday afternoon at the Buck Creek church and the interment made in the Atlantic cemetery.

NOTE FROM CONTRIBUTOR: Jessie Herbert was born May 11, 1890 and died November 20, 1914
