Daisy Marian Wheat was born in DeSmet, South Dakota, July 31, 1885, and died in Estherville July 31, 1923, at the age of 38 years passing away on her birthday. She grew to womanhood near DeSmet and taught several terms of school there. November 24, 1905, she was united in marriage to Roscoe C. Roberts and to this union five children were born, four of whom survive her. They are Lloyd, Guy, Edith and Kenneth. She also leaves to mourn her loss, her mother, Mrs. W. H. Wheat, of Manchester, So. Dak., and two sisters, Mrs. Ray Roberts of Estherville and Mrs. J. O. Purintun of DeSmet, So. Dakota, also one brother, Harold, of Spokane, Wash.

In 1917 the family moved to Estherville and in November 1922 she was united with the Christian church and proved herself true and faithful to its teachings. Her death was caused by heart failure following childbirth, and came as a severe shock to the family and friends.

Mrs. Roberts was a woman of cheerful disposition, loyal to her many friends, a most loving wife and mother.

The loss of this mother to her home can never be replaced. Those who mourn her early departure have the inspiration of a noble life to comfort them in their sorrow.
