Jessie M. Kidner was born near Strawberry Point, Iowa, July 7th, 1892 and died at Edgewood, Iowa, June 7th, 1914, at the age of 21 years and 11 months.
Her husband of Strawberry Point, Iowa, her Mother, Mrs. Martha Peet of Edgewood, Iowa, and her brother, Shelton Arnold of Anamosa, together with other relatives and friends are left to mourn the loss of this bright young life so early taken from earthly activities.
Jessie was graduated from the Edgewood High School with the class of 1909, following which she successfully taught two terms of School in Pleasant Grove district near Mrs. Tyrrell's southeast of Edgewood.
Her marriage to John Walter Alderson occurred at Strawberry Point, Iowa, February 8th, 1911, and on the first of March of the same year they moved onto a farm near that place, remaining there for one year. At the end of that time Jessies failing health compelled them to remove from the farm. Going to Des Moines, Iowa, they lived there for some time and while there Mr. Alderson attended a "Barber College, " fitting himself for that profession. During their residence at Des Moines, Mrs. Alderson contracted a severe cold, from the effects of which she never recovered, Chronic Bronchitis resulted, and although she made a brave battle for life, it was in the end unsuccessful.
The departed was one of Edgewood's best young people, a girl trying to do right all the times, and one who easily made friends of those with whom she came in contact. Her life was unusually active, always urging to a successful completion any work the she undertook.
Through all her sickness she was patient and uncomplaining, accepting her lot without murmur and with a beautiful confidence. She was conscious to the last. Among her last words she said, " A have made peace with my God." " I am ready to go and not afraid to die."
For pall bearers six young ladies were chosen, namely: Flosssie Stone-Brown, Jennie Peet-Cordary, Nellie Smith, Esther Peick, Margaret Richards and Leora Way. The three first mentioned were members of Jessie's own class of 1909.
Thus a young life has been transplanted from the uncertainties of this worl to blossom amid the realities of that future existence upon which she so trustingly entered.
Funeral services were held from the Methodist church at Strawberry Point, Tuesday afternoon at 2o'clock conducted by Rev. Bradford, pastor of the church. Internment was made in the Strawberry Point cemetery.
