Iver Iverson, one of the old residents of Dolliver, died at his home here in Dolliver Tuesday night, Jan. 25. Mr. Iverson had been in poor health for some time but only the last three weeks had he been confined to his bed. Mr. Iverson was a good Christian man and until his health began to fail was always a regular attendant at church. When his children were small you would see him come to church carrying one in his arms and the others at his side. No matter what the weather was you could count on him being there. He was a good, kind father and husband. He knew he could not get well but was willing to go and was prepared for death. The funeral was held from the M.E. church on Thursday afternoon conducted by Rev. Marsh, his pastor, and the body laid to rest in the Dolliver cemetery. This community extends their sympathy to the bereaved family. Obituary found elsewhere. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, February 2, 1921)
