Mrs. Jesse Bearss Called by Death
After suffering for over a year as the result of a stroke of paralysis, Mrs. Jessie BEARSS, wife of the late George BEARSS, died at the family cottage at lake Manitou, Thursday evening, at eight o'clock. Death was not unexpected and the end came a relief to many days of intense pain and acute suffering. Mrs. Bearss was stricken with paralysis in January, 1913.
Mrs. Bearss was well known in this county because of her activity in social work previous to her illness and also because of her husband, who was known for his enterprise and the fact that he was one of the largest land owners in this county. Mr. Bearss has been dead two years.
Mrs. Bearss was born in this county March 3rd, 1864, the daughter of Mr. & Mrs John McBRIDE. About 27 years ago she was married to George Bearss. Four children were born to this union, two of whom are living, George McBride BEARSS and Gresham BEARSS.
Mrs. Bearss has been identified with the Presbyterian church for many years and was always active in all its work. The funeral will be held Monday afternoon at the home of the son, Gresham. Rev. STEWART will have charge of the services. Interment will take place at the I.O.O.F. cemetery.
