Death Claims Young Woman; Marjorie Anderson Dies After Relapse Following Attack of Measles
Profound grief was aroused in Ida Grove and elsewhere over Ida county when it became known last week that Miss Marjorie Anderson has passed from human existence Thursday, March 13, at 7:15 a.m. at the familyís new home on a farm near Anthon whence it had moved only a few days before.
The young woman had recently passed through an attack of measles and had made an apparent recovery. She assisted the family in moving from near Galva to Anthon and possibly had overtaxed her strength or taken cold. She has a relapse about the eighth of March and it was supposed that mastoid trouble developed, from the effects of which she rapidly grew worse, until death came.
The funeral was held at the Methodist church in Ida Grove Sunday, in charge of Rev. Dunn, the pastor who welcomed her into church fellowship a few months previously. The auditorium was crowded to its utmost capacity and there were floral remembrances from a great throng of bereft friends. Burial was made in Ida Grove cemetery.
Marjorie Agnes Anderson was born May 30, 1912 at Danbury, Iowa, and would have been eighteen years old the coming Memorial day. Her parents are Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Anderson. The family moved to the Battle Creek neighborhood in 1920 and to Ida Grove in 1925, where Marjorie spent four years in the local high school, being a member of the class of 1929. Since last June, she has held business positions in Ida Grove, having assisted in the county treasurerís office in last Decemberís registration of motor licenses and having also served as office girl in Dr. Hartís office during the absence of her older sister. In her high school days she was a member of the girls basketball squad.
She is survived by her parents, five sisters; Maurine, Dorothy, Floy, Arline and Phyllis, two brothers, Verlin and Russell, and by her devoted grandfather, Alex Anderson who watched at her bedside the last night while life was slowly slipping away. Marjorie was loved for her friendly and unselfish spirit, her pleasant manners and her high ideals. She was almost idolized by her family, who have been deeply stricken by her sudden taking.
