Mrs. C. K. DesMarias Dies Wednesday Morning After Long Illness
Mrs. C. K. DesMarias died at her home in Grundy Center early Wednesday morning following an illness which covered a period of more than a year. She had been bedfast for several months. She was 60 years old.
Funeral services will be held at the Methodist church in Grundy Center Friday afternoon at 2:30. The services will be conducted by the local pastor, Rev. H. Palmer. Burial will be in the Grundy Center cemetery.
Since their marriage Mr. and Mrs. DesMarias made their home on a farm 4 miles southwest of Grundy Center until they moved into their new and modern home in Grundy Center about five years ago.
Ella May Booheister, daughter of Christopher and Elizabeth Booheister, was born near Shell Rock, Iowa, April 29, 1882, and passed away at her home in Grundy Center May 20, 1942.
When a girl, she moved with her parents to Parkersburg, living there until her marriage to C. K. DesMarias on March 23, 1904. Since her marriage she had made her home in the Grundy Center community.
Beside her husband she is survived by four sisters and two brothers: Mrs. Hattie Amburn, a twin sister, Grundy Center; Mrs. B. H. Hyde, Shell Rock; Mrs. Irvin Card, Parkersburg; Mrs. Ernest Wiener, Hamburg, Ill.; William Booheister, Mandan, North Dakota; Charles Booheister, Pilot Mound, Iowa. A brother, John, and a sister, Emma, preceded her in death.
Mrs. DesMarias was a member of the Methodist Church, taking an active part in the interests and work of the local Methodist church as long as her health permitted. Her passing will not only be deeply felt in the family circle but by everyone in the community who was acquainted with her, and knew her to be interested in the welfare of all.
