Funeral of Mrs. F. W. Pearson
The remains of Mrs. F. W. Pearson, who died at Douglas, Arizona, arrived in LeMars on Saturday at noon accompanied by her husband, F. W. Pearson and her sister, Miss Sarah Eyres, and were taken to the home of her brother, Zack Eyres, on Main street until Sunday morning when they were taken to the Union Township Presbyterian Church of which she was a most devout member, where the funeral was held. The funeral was conducted by Rev. W. G. Moore, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of LeMars, who paid a beautiful tribute to her as a woman and Christian. The church was filled to overflowing by the life time acquaintances, who desired to give this evidence of their sorrow over her death. Six of her brothers acted as pall bearers and tenderly laid the casket beside that of her youngest child, a babe of four months who died last June.
Deceased was born at Manvers, Ontario, Canada, October 27, 1870, and with the family came to Plymouth County when they settled in Union township in 1883.
She was educated in the schools of this county, LeMars and Cedar Falls and entered upon the course of a teacher. She was one of the successful teachers of this county and was prominent in educational work. In 1900 she went to Nevada where in November she entered the civil service and had charge of a government school in Carson, Nevada, where she lived for a year.
On March 26, 1902, she was united in marriage with Mr. F. W. Pearson of Turner, Oregon, residing there for some time and resided at Wallace, Idaho, for two years where both of her babes were born. She came to spend the summer last year with her relatives in this county and suffered a great sorrow in the loss of her infant babe. She went to Douglas, Arizona, in November of last year, where her husband had preceded her to make their home. She was taken sick with pneumonia about the middle of January and died on the 26th day of that month. She leaves, besides a devoted husband, a babe of about two years, an aged mother, seven brothers and three sisters and a host of friends who are sorrow stricken over her death. With the exception of her father, the Eyres family was unbroken until her death.
