Mrs. J. D. Meyer Died In Her Sleep Thursday
Mrs. John D. Meyer was found dead in her bed at her home in Wellsburg early Thursday morning. Mrs. George Paterni, who had been assisting in Mrs. Meyer's home a number of days and who spent the night there, got up early to give Mrs. Meyer a cup of tea. She found her dead in her bed.
Mrs. Meyer suffered a stroke of paralysis on Monday before her death. She had partly recovered from this stroke and was able to be up and around the house. She appeared to be feeling well when she went to bed on Wednesday night. It is believed she received a second stroke some time during the night and passed away without awakening. She was dead but a short time before her body was found by Mrs. Paterni.
Mrs. Meyer would have been 78 years old had she lived util the 13th of December. She was born in Germany. She came to this country when she was about 16 years old and was employed as a helper in this locality until she was married. Following her marriage she and her husband made their home on their farm a short distance south of Holland. They moved to the town of Holland 33 years ago. Mr. Meyer died in 1907. Eighteen years ago Mrs. Meyer moved to Wellsburg where she resided continually until the time of her death.
Mr. and Mrs. Meyer had no children of their own. They took two girls into their home who remained with her until they married. They are Mrs. Fred Stahl of Austin, Minn., and Mrs. Will Conradi from Dike.
Funeral services were held at the Reformed church in Wellsburg Saturday afternoon. The services were conducted by the local pastor, Rev. Wm. Landsiedel. Burial was by the side of the husband in the Colfax Presbyterian church cemetery.
