Community Shocked at the Sudden Death of Dr. Bert Wiley on November 4th.

Jesse Bertram Wiley, third child of J.F. and Sarah E. (Thompson) Wiley, was born near Buck Grove, August 26, 1879, and was one of a family of ten children. He grew up rugged in body and strong and intelligent, and with the advantages his parents gave him seemed destined to make his mark in the world. He received his early education in the rural schools in this county. Desiring a better education than could be acquired here, he went to Denison where for two years he attended the Denison Normal College. Having decided to take up the study of medicine, he went to Iowa City and for two years was a student at the Iowa State University. Then he went to Chicago where he attended the Physician and Surgeon College, graduating with honors among a large class. He began the practice of his profession at Armour, South Dakota, where he remained for two years, after which he located at Osmond, Nebraska, where he has since resided.

He was married at Osmond, November 23, 1904, to Miss Ferne Scott of Eagle Grove, Iowa. They are the parents of two bright little girls, Miriam and Phyllis.

He died at Pierce, Nebraska, where he had gone on business, November 4, 1912. The cause of his death was heart failure superinduced by acute indigestion. In lodge circles he was a member of the Modern Woodmen of America and the Masonic Order. He leaves of his immediate family to mourn his demise, a wife, two daughters, mother, four sisters and two brothers. The remains were brought to Dow City Wednesday evening for burial. The funeral was held in the Methodist Episcopal Church Thursday afternoon, pastor Joseph Stephan conducting the services. The remains were laid to rest in the Dow City Cemetery west of town.
