Mrs. W. H. Meyer Passes Suddenly
One of the saddest news items the Herald has had to chronicle lately, is the fact that Mrs. W. H. Meyer died at the family home south of Wellsburg, at 8:00 o'clock Wednesday evening.
The cause of death was pneumonia. Mrs. Meyer was sick for a very short time, her condition becoming alarming only a day or two before the end.
She was a daughter of Mrs. O. Nederhoff, whose funeral was held two weeks ago Friday. At that time Mrs. Meyer had a very severe cold, which later developed into the trouble which caused her death.
Dr. Wray was called in consultation as soon as her illness was found to be serious and every effort was made that medical skill could put in play, but to no avail.
The bereaved husband and four motherless children who are left to mourn her loss have the deepest sympathy of the entire community in their affliction.
The funeral will be held at 1:30 on Saturday at the house and later services will be held at the English church, interment being made in the Wellsburg cemetery.
The pall bearers will be Albert W. Meyer, Theodore DeNeui, Henry J. Lutterman, Wort Meyer, Heye Boomgaarden Jr. and Jerry Lutterman.
An obituary will be printed in the Herald next week.
