Mrs. E. N. Myers Victim of Small Pox at St. Paul

Mrs. Mary Myers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hyrup of this city, passed away in St. Paul, Sunday [November 2, 1924]. Her death was caused by black small pox, an epidemic of which is raging in St. Paul. Mrs. Hyrup was notified of her daughterís serious condition on Sunday and hired an auto to take her to that city but arrived just after Mrs. Myers passed away.

The body was brought to Estherville Tuesday afternoon and services were held at Oak Hill cemetery this morning at 10:00 in charge of Rev. W. F. Huxford of the Baptist church. A church funeral could not be held because of the nature of the malady that brought about Mrs. Myersí death.

The deceased was born on Sept. 4, 1891, in this city. She received her education in our city schools and lived here until her marriage to Eugene N. Myers, then clerk in the superintendentís office at Rock Island. Mr. and Mrs. Myers made their home in Duluth for two years and for the past eight years have lived in St. Paul where Mr Myers is at present chief clerk in the Minnesota Transfer.

Besides her parents and husband, she is survived by one sister, Christina. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, November 5, 1924)
