Mrs. Graves had been in ill health for several years. She suffered another stroke Tuesday, April 8th, and passed away Wednesday morning, April 9th at the age of 65 years, 6 months and 11 days.

She leaves to mourn her death, her husband, John, two sons, John A., of Melvin, Ia., and Donald I. of Ocheyedan, Iowa; five daughters: Mrs. Maymie Strayer of Armour, S.D.; Mrs. Pearl Kout of Ocheyedan, Ia., Mrs. Verna Eyraud and Mrs. Mildred Holloway, both of Bakersfield, Calif.; Mrs. Beulah MacDougall (sic) of Melvin; two sisters, Mrs. Lillian Graves of Melvin, Iowa, and Mrs. Emil Dass of Iowa Falls, Iowa; four brothers, Edward and Henry Jacobs, both of Melvin, Iowa; Earl Jacobs of Allendorf, Ia.; George Jacobs of Worthington, Minn.; and twelve grandchildren.

She was a member of the Methodist Church, and during the years when her health permitted, was a faithful and interested worker in the Woman's Society of the Church. She was also a member of the local Royal Neighbor Camp and the Women's Relief Corps. She was a loyal friend, a faithful and devoted wife and mother, and will be greatly missed by her family and friends, for though of late years being an invalid and afflicted, she inspired deep sympathy and love.
