Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 16 Apr. 1914. Guttenberg column.

On Monday evening at 10:46 o'clock, at her home in this city, occurred the death of Mrs. Jessie Morse Beyer, the cause of her death being carcinoma of the breast. Deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Morse, of Elkader, and was born at North McGregor Iowa, on March 2, 1877, and later, went with her parents to Elkader. On June 4, 1902, she was married at Elkader to Dr. A. E. Beyer, of Guttenberg, and since that time has been a resident of our city. She was 37 years, one month and four days at the time of her death. She was a patient sufferer and did not give up hopes for recovery until the last, when the Anbel of Death called her to that world where all pains are forgotten. All that loving hands could do and medical knowledge could suggest was done for her to ward off death, but all to no avail. She was a kind and true wife, mother, daughter and friend and was loved by all who knew her. She was a woman who was always ready with heart and hand to assist those in need and the many kind acts she did made her many friends. She was at one time president of the Ladies' Ingleside Club and was at the head of a movement for the Front Street Park, and was a tireless worker for the cause. She was also a member of the Eastern Star Order and the Congregational church. The passing of this good woman has saddened many hearts. She was true and faithful in all of life's relations and her memory will be cherished by all who knew her. Her untimely death is deeply mourned by her husband, one son, Morse Edwin Beyer, two years old; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Morse, of Elkader, and a large circle of relatives and friends, by whom she will be sadly missed. Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at the home and same were largely attended. Interment was made in the City cemetery. Rev. Wharton, of Center Grove, Iowa, officiated at the funeral.
