Mrs. B. T. Osher Died Suddenly Tuesday Morning
Was Victim of Heart Attack
Graettinger friends of Dr. and Mrs. B. T. Osher, Estherville, were saddened to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Osher. The family is well known in Graettinger as Dr. Osher practiced dentistry here for several years and Mrs. Osher taught in the local high school prior to her marriage. The particulars, as taken from the Estherville Daily News, are as follows:

Mrs. B. T. Osher, 65, of Estherville died Tuesday [December 14, 1943] morning at 10:30 following a heart attack. Dr. Osher found his wife lying dead in the bathroom when he arrived home for lunch at noon. Mrs. Osher had not been ill and her death was entirely unexpected.

Jedie Jones, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Jones, was born July 5, 1878, in Big Creek, Wisconsin. She attended the public schools in Wisconsin and later attended Normal school at Cedar Falls. Prior to her marriage, December 10, 1902, to Dr. B. T. Osher, Mrs. Osher taught school in the rural schools of Emmet county and also at Graettinger.

Mrs. Osher joined the Presbyterian church when 10 years of age. During the first few years of her married life Mrs. Osher attended church at Graettinger where the couple lived. When they came to Estherville both Dr. and Mrs. Osher united with the Presbyterian church on October 27, 1912. Mrs. Osher was active in church work and greatly interested in all phases of church activities.

She is survived by her husband, three children, Lieut. Commander J. B. Osher, who is stationed at the Great Lakes, Illinois; Helen Osher, a teacher in the Lincoln high school in Des Moines, and Mrs. Wilbert Heinrich, of Mankato, Minn.; two sisters, Mrs. R. S. Clark of Estherville and Mrs. J. W. Thomas of Minneapolis, who is at this time on her way to California. Mrs. Osher is also survived by one grandchild, Louise Heinrich.

Funeral services will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at the Osher home, 708 4th Ave. North, and at 2:30 p.m. from the Presbyterian church. (Graettinger Times, Graettinger, IA, December 16, 1943)
