From: Le Mars Semi-Weekly Sentinel, March 6, 1917

Mrs. Jobes, wife of W. V. Jobes, of Craig died on Saturday evening , following a brief illness from diphtheria. She was taken sick the Monday previous with tonsilitis and serious complications set in resulting in her death. The funeral was held on Sunday from the home, conducted by Rev. J. Vollmar, but was strictly private owing to the nature of the disease from which she succumbed.

Henrietta Johnson was born and lived all her life in Plymouth county. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Johnson , and was born in Elgin township on October 16, l890. She was educated in the schools in Struble and Le Mars, and after leaving school taught in the public schools of the county for five years. She taught in the school at Craig for some time and later assisted her father in a store he owned there and was postmistress at Craig for a few years. She was united in marriage with W. V. Jobes, a leading merchant of Craig, on July 2, of last year.

Besides the bereaved husband and parents, she leaves two sisters. Mrs. Fred Nanninga of Craig, and Mrs. A. L. Porter, of Madison, S. D., to mourn her early death.

Mrs. Jobes had a large number of friends and acquaintances and was universally liked in her home community and her early death is a great shock to the residents of the community in which she lived.
