This entire community was shocked Saturday morning when it was learned that Mrs. J. J. Meyer died at the hospital at Waverly about one o'clock Saturday morning. She was taken very sick at her home about eleven o'clock Friday forenoon when she became unconscious. Doctors from Parkersburg and Waverly were called at once, who did all they could to relieve the patient but her condition showed no improvement and as a last resort she was taken to the hospital at Waverly in the evening. She passed away two hours after she reached the hospital. Diabeta coma was the cause of her death.
Mrs. Meyer had not been very well for some time. On Christmas day she attended a large family gathering at the A. J. Meyer home and she felt well at the time and ate a very hearty dinner. She was as well as usual Friday morning and was doing her work in the home when she was taken violently ill and shortly after passed into unconsciousness.
Mrs. Meyer's remains were brought to the home on Saturday. Funeral services were held at the home on Wednesday and at the church at Stout with Rev. Reeverts officiating. There was a very large attendance at the funeral service.
Mrs. Meyer was thirty-three years old. She was a daughter of the late Ralph DeVries. She resided in this locality all of her life where she was honored and beloved by all who knew her. About five years ago she was married to J. J. Meyer and during their married life they resided on their farm in south Beaver township.
Mrs. Meyers obituary will be published in full in the next issue of this paper.

Funeral of Mrs. J. J. Meyer
The funeral services for the late Mrs. J. J. Meyer were held at the church at Stout last Wednesday afternoon with Rev. Reeverts officiating. The church was not large enough to accommodate the friends of the deceased and her family who attended. There was a beautiful and a generous floral offering from loving and sympathizing friends. Interment was made in the cemetery here.
Mrs. Fannie Meyer was born on July 29th, 1891, near Lincoln Center in Grundy county. She grew to womanhood in that community. On March 12th, 1918, she was united in marriage to J. J. Meyer of Beaver township. Shortly after the wedding Mr. and Mrs. Meyer began housekeeping on their farm in this township where she continued to reside up to the time of her death. She was 33 years, 4 months and 28 days old when the angel of death called her. Besides her husband and son, Mrs. Meyer leaves to mourn her death her mother, three brothers and two sisters.
Nearly every one in this community knew Mrs. Meyer as a real home maker, a loving wife and mother and as a woman of fine Christian character. Her loss is not alone felt in the home from which she was taken so early in her life but by the entire community.
Relatives from a distance who were here to attend the funeral were Earnest Meyer from Shannon, Ill.; Christ Schoonhoven, Jake Schoonhoven and Henry DeWall, from Baileyville, Ill.; Leub Boomgarden of German Valley, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Klinkenborg and John Dreesman, of George, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. George VanLoh and Minnie VanLoh of Cedar Falls; Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert Anderson of Independence, Iowa; Ben Diddens of Allison, Iowa.
