Mrs. Virgil Williams, 35, passed away Monday [August 18, 1941] morning at 11:30 at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Holl, who live near Maple Hill. Mrs. Williams had been in poor health for the past year, suffering from cancer. At times her condition improved sufficient for her to be up and around with her family but for the past few weeks she has been confined to her bed.

Jennie Holl was born January 2, 1906, near Maple Hill. She attended the rural schools of the county and was graduated from the Maple Hill high school. A few years after her graduation she was united in marriage with Virgil Williams of Chicago, Ill. The couple moved to a farm near Spirit Lake where they resided for a number of years. Later they moved to Madrid, Iowa. Early this spring the family came to Emmet county for a visit with relatives and it was while visiting here that Mrs. Williams was taken sick. Her condition improved enough so that she was able to go to Chicago with her family. Three weeks ago she returned here and has been confined to her bed since then.

Mrs. Williams has been a lifelong member of the Community church in Dolliver and has taken an active part in all its organizations. She served as a pianist of the church for a number of years and was also a teacher in the Sunday school. Her home and family were the center of her interests and she worked hard to make their lives the most comfortable possible with no thought for herself or the work required of her.

Besides her husband she is survived by one son, Donald, 15, a daughter, Lois, 13, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Holl and five brothers, George, Lee, Wesley, Herman and Wayne Holl.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 at the Holl home and 2:30 at the Dolliver Community church. Burial will be in the Dolliver cemetery. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, August 19, 1941)
