[St. Charles (MN) Union, Saturday, March 21, 1924, p. 1] MRS. G. BOWERS OF EYOTA DIED AFTER OPERATION. Mrs. Garvin Bowers, who was taken to Rochester over a week ago for an operation for appendicitis, died on Tuesday evening. She was a young woman who had been in good health until her recent illness and her many friends are shocked by her death. Mr. and Mrs. Bowers had lived here but a few months coming from Juanita, North Dakota. Her remains were taken from Rochester on Wednesday evening. Her husband and one daughter besides many friends mourn her early death.
[Winona Republican Herald, Saturday, March 21, 1924, p. 10 col. 2]Mrs. Bauer who was taken last week to a Rochester hospital suffering from appendicitis died on Tuesday evening. The husband and a small son survive.
[Tigerton Chronicle, Friday, March 28, 1924, p. 1, col. 5] Deep sorrow again descended on the L.M. Hoffman home, in the Town of Germania, last week when the sad intelligence was received that their only daughter, Mrs. Garvin Bauer, had passed away following an operation for a ruptured appendics. Her father L.M. Hoffman was with her at the time of her death. Mrs. Garvin Bauer, nee Gertrude Hoffman, was born October 11, 1900, and was therefore in her twenty fourth year. She grew to womanhood in Germania where she received her schooling, and later became a student in the local high school. She was united in marriage to Garvin Bauer, son of Mrs. E. C. Bauer, former prominent residents of Germania, and shortly following her marriage, the young couple located at Juanita, N.D., later removing to Eyota, Minn. While apparently enjoying good health and rejoicing over the arrival of her father, who had arrived at their home for a brief visit, Mrs. Bauer was stricken with an attack of appendicitis, and she was rushed to the Mayo Bros. Hospital at Rochester, Minn. to undergo an operation. The operation was successfully performed, and recovery was anticipated when peritonitis developed and her condition grew worse until death ensued on the ninth day following the operation. A husband, and two year old son, with her parents and two brothers survive her. Her remains were brought to the home of her parents last Thursday and the funeral services were held Sunday afternoon from St. John's Lutheran church. Interment was made in Union cemetery. The services were very largely attended and many from a distance were here to pay their last sad respects.
