From the LeMars Sentinel, LeMars, (Plymouth), Iowa, Tuesday, October19, 1920, Page 1, Column 4:
FORMER LEMARS WOMAN DEAD
Mrs. H. N. Kern Spent Her Girlhood In This County
Mrs. H. N. Kern, a former resident of LeMars died at her home in Oregon City, Ore., on Thursday October 14, following an operation for appendicitis. Edith Irene Burrill was born in Dubuque county on October 13, 1879 and came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Burrill to LeMars in 1883. The family settled in Johnson township on a farm where they lived until 1902 when they moved to LeMars. She was united in marriage with H. N. Kern on October 6, 1904. They moved from here to South Dakota in 1909 where they lived until 1913 when they went to Oregon. She is survived by her husband and five children who are, Lola Gladys, Robert William, George Christian, Lois Irene, and Mary Martha. She also leaves to mourn her death her father, three brothers and four sisters. One sister and two brothers preceded her in death.

[Excerpt from granddaughter: Edith Burrill did not die from appendicitis surgery. An operation revealed she had swallowed a staple (such as used in fence building) at some point and it lodged in a muscle, causing her leg to draw up. This went on most of one summer, so, no doubt, there was infection. She died 3 days after surgery.]
