Mrs. A. Ivey Buried Here Last Monday
Resided Here 35 Years
The community received a shock last Saturday evening when the announcement came of the death of Mrs. A. Ivey. It has been known that she was quite seriously ill but friends had not thought her illness serious.

Mrs. Ivey was taken to the Birney hospital some seven weeks ago for treatment. She had not been in good health for sometime past and went to the hospital for examination and treatment. Her condition became more serious and close friends knew it was serious before the end came.

Resided Here Since 1900
Dr. and Mrs. Ivey have resided in this city since 1900 and Dr. Ivey has been one of Estherville’s leading dentists. After the young couple came to this city they made friends rapidly and at all times enjoyed the friendship of all who knew them. Mrs. Ivey was beloved by all and we can safely say her friends were numbered by her acquaintances. Kind and considerate to the last degree to her friends and neighbors, who all held her in the highest esteem.

Born in Applinton
Mrs. Ivey was born in Aplington, March 27, 1875. She was united in marriage to Dr. Ivey in 1900 and shortly afterward they moved to Estherville to make their home. To this union one daughter was born, Mildred, now Mrs. J. B. Miner, Jr., of Charles City.

Funeral services were from St. Patrick’s church of which she was a devout member, on Monday morning at nine thirty. High mass was read by the Rev. McGoey assisted by Rev. Eischid of Armstrong and Rev. Grady of Bancroft. The Rev. C. P. Conway, now of Storm Lake, in a short service eulogized Mrs. Ivey, who was at one time one of his member in a manner befitting the life of this worthy woman.

The remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery south of the city.

Mrs. Ivey is survived by her husband and daughter, Mrs. Miner of Charles City.

The following from out of the city were here in attendance at the funeral services:
