Miss Janet Kerr was born March 26, 1857, in Burritts Rapids, Ont., where she spent her girlhood days until 1875 when she removed with her mother and two sisters to the home of her uncle, John Nicholson, on a farm near Frankville, Ia., her father, two brothers and two sisters having passed away. She was united in marriage to Wm. McIntosh of Decorah, July 19th, 1893. After their marriage they resided at Decorah, Waukon and on a farm near Frankville.
Her husband passed to eternity July 3rd, 1909. Since his death Mrs. McIntosh has traveled quite extensively having spent some time in Ontario, Canada, California, Washington and various cities in Iowa. Nearly one year ago she decided to make her home with her sister, Mrs. J. F. McIntyre, of this city, where after an illness of eleven weeks where she received careful nursing and medical attention, but to no avail, she passed away April 22nd, 1916.
She leaves to mourn her loss one sister and husband and the following neices and nephews: James A. and Harry O., Mr. and Mrs. C. C. McIntyre and two children Marguerite and Clark of this city, Miss Florence of St Paul, J. Leslie of Mason City, Mr. and Mrs. L. D. McIntyre of Kendallville and Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Renne and son Floyd of Waterloo, Ia.
She was an earnest Christian and the implicit faith and trust which she showed to the last was an inspiration to all who came in contact with her. According to her wish, her funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon, April 25th at the Presbyterian Church at Frankville, Ia., where she first gave her strong young heart to God. Interment in village cemetery.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows she was born in 1856; however, that doesn't agree with the above.
