Clayton County Register, 21 Feb. 1940.

This community has again been called upon to surrender one of its old pioneers when Mrs. Wm. P. Uriell passed away at her home in Garnavillo, Iowa, on Friday morning, Feb. 16, 1940, at the age of 77 years, six months and one day. Mrs. Uriell had been in failing health for a number of years, having been afflicted with a rheumatic condition the past 20 years that kept her confined to her home, and for the past ten years she has been a helpless invalid, so her suffering has been intense during this long span of years.

Mrs. Uriell was the daughter of William and Mary Kann and was born August 15, 1863, in Jefferson township. Her girlhood was spent in that community, and on Sept. 27, 1887, at the age of 24 years, she was married to Wm. P. Uriell at St. Joseph's church in Garnavillo, with the Rev. Mr. Helreigel, who was pastor of the church, performing the ceremony. They began housekeeping on their farm in Garnavillo township, and that remained their home for 50 years. On Sept. 27, 1937, this estimable couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. Friends came from near and far on that day to pay tribute to them.

Their son Frank, with whom they made their home in later years, sold the Uriell farm in 1938 and they moved to Garnavillo, which has since been their home. Mrs. Uriell is survived by her husband, Wm. P. Uriell, two sons, Frank of Garnavillo, and Gregor of Guttenberg; three daughters, Mrs. Ben Meyers of Elkader, Mrs. Clarence Berns of Manitoba, Canada, and Mrs. Kenneth McLane of Elkader, Fifteen grandchildren also survive Mrs. Uriell.

Funeral services were held Monday morning, Feb. 19, at St. Joseph's church at Garnavillo, of which Mrs. Uriell was a faithful member, with Reverend Father Sharphoff, pastor of the church, officiating. The church was filled to its capacity, which gave testimony of the high esteem that the deceased was held in the community. Burial was made in the Catholic cemetery. The pallbearers were five of her grandsons, Lester Meyer, John Meyer, LeRoy Meyer, Lloyd Meyer, and a nephew, Dan Uriell.

(Note: The surname Meyer/Meyers was spelled both ways in the article, as shown.)
