Miss Vera, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Christopher, died Sunday [November 28, 1926] after an illness of two years. Her ailment was something in the nature of anemia. The funeral was held at the M.E. church Wednesday at one o’clock in the afternoon, Rev. L.C. McNulty officiating. The burial was in High Lake cemetery.

She graduated from the Graettinger High School and later took a course in the Iowa State college at Ames to prepare herself for the vocation of teaching. She taught one year at Bagley and two years at Halfa. She proved herself a tireless worker in the school room and was much esteemed by all who came in contact with her. Besides her parents, she leaves to mourn her passing, two sisters, Miss Cora of Graettinger and Mrs. Leon Nefstead of Newton. A wide circle of friends offer sincere sympathy to the family in their sorrow. – Emmetsburg Democrat (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, December 8, 1926)
