Ernest Sizer Dead
Had Been Ill Over Seven Weeks With Typhoid Fever
Apparently Was Recoving
Had Passed Through Most Severe Stages of Fever

Ernest Sizer died Sunday evening at the home of his parents, 205 East Maple street after an illness of seven weeks with typhoid fever. He had successfully passed through the severe stages of the fever and was apparently getting well when he suffered a relapse which in his weak physical condition he could not withstand.

Frederick Ernest Sizer, son of J. F. and Esther Sizer, was born in Spirit Lake December 14, 1882, and came to Estherville with his parents in 1888. After he grew to manhood he engaged in the business of draying and teaming. He was an industrious young man of good habits and well liked in the community. He was an active member of the Estherville fire department and of the Highland Nobles lodge.

The funeral services were held at the Sizer home at 2 oíclock yesterday afternoon, conducted by Rev. C. E. McColley of the Free Baptist church.

The remains were interred in Oak Hill cemetery.

The decedentís mother is quite ill with typhoid fever and it was feared she would not survive the shock occasioned by her sonís death. She was some better yesterday. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, November 1, 1905)
