Mrs. Harm H. Meyer Called By Death Early Wednesday Morning
Passes Away Suddenly At Her Farm Home About Two Miles East Of Wellsburg
Was Only 35 Years Of Age
Had Lived All Her Life In This Vicinity And Has A Host Of Friends To Mourn Her Death
Mrs. Harm H. Meyer, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hemmo Luppen passed away at her home two miles east of Wellsburg about 1:30 o'clock this (Wednesday) morning, very suddenly, a brain hemorrhage being given as the cause of her death.
Mrs. Meyer was thirty-five years of age at the time of her death, and leaves behind her to mourn her passing, her husband, and two sons, Harvin and Larry, her parents and a brother Fred Luppen, as well as a great circle of relatives and friends who will sincerely mourn the untimely passing of a good and true friend, a woman whose place in the community will be difficult to fill.
She spent all of her life in this community, having been born and grown to womanhood southwest of Wellsburg and graduated from the local high school with the class of 1923. Her untimely end is made more tragic by the fact that she suffered no illness that might have heralded the end and prepared those left behind for the shock of her passing.
Funeral services will be held Friday at the home at 12:00 o'clock and later at the Wellsburg Reformed church.

Hannah Meyer, nee Luppen, was born in Shiloh township, June 10, 1904. She was joined in holy wedlock with Harm Meyer on February 14, 1935, making their home together on a farm in Colfax township, two miles east of Wellsburg. Their happy union was blessed with two children. At the time of her death, at 1:20 a.m., Wednesday, she had reached the age of thirty-six years, eight months and two days.
As she was one of those who loved the house of God and regularly attended our church services, where her place will be vacant from now on, we hope the Lord may through faith have bestowed unto her the conviction of salvation by grace to enjoy the peaceful heavenly mansions now.
Beside the sorrowing husband, her two children, Harvin and Larry, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hemmo Luppen and also one brother, Fred Luppen, mourn her untimely loss. A large host of other relatives and friends are mindful of her sudden departure and will preserve for her a kind and loving memory. May the God of all comfort be their refuge and strength in their sorrow and bereavement.
