Young Mother Taken

Monday afternoon Mrs. Peter Meyer was laid to rest at the cemetery in Diamond Lake.

Without any previous illness or warning the young wife and mother was Friday evening called away to the land beyond. The esteem Mrs. Meyer held in the community and church was shown by the large number who followed her to her last resting place.

In the home Rev. Kjaer, pastor of the charge, spoke on 1st Cor. 13:8; "Love never faileth," and in the church, which was beautifully decorated with flowers, Rev Kjaer again spoke on Isa. 55:8: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord."

The deceased, a daughter of C. J. Christensen of north of town, was born in Exira, Iowa the 14th of August, 1899 and came with her parents to this community in 1914. July 9th, 1919, she was married to Peter Meyer. Five children were born to this union, two of which preceded the mother in death. Mrs. Meyer is thus survived by her mourning husband and three little motherless children; Stanley, Thelma, and little Soren, who do not yet realize what they have lost.

May they in their sorrow cling fast to Him who has said: He is the friend of the forsaken and the comforter of the sorrowful.
