The Obituary
Anna M. [arie] Wyatt was born in Danvers, Mass., March 7, 1854.
Her parents, Edward and Maria Wyatt, were of old New England stock. Miss Wyatt graduated from the Danvers High School in 1871 and taught school for several years.
On Sept. 9 [11], 1876, she was married in Danvers to Joseph B. [rown] Dodge and left immediately for Iowa. They settled on a farm near Platteville, where they lived until l888, when they removed to Bedford.
In early girlhood she had joined the Congregational church, but shortly after coming to Bedford she became a Presbyterian. She was a faithful member of the different organizations of the church and Sabbath School. She was also a member of the Thursday Club and a charter member of the Eastern Star and served as its secretary for many years.
Her husband, Joseph B. Dodge, died in February 1912, and a child born soon after their coming to Iowa, died at birth. Besides a host of friends she leaves to mourn her going, her brother Benjamin Wyatt of Danvers, Mass., her sister Frances Wyatt of Pacific Grove, Calif., and several nephews and nieces, among them Mrs. Fannie Morris and Mrs. Amy Hickenlooper.
On Thursday, March 13, she was taken suddenly ill on her way to the Thursday club and died the same evening.
Throughout her long residence in Bedford she endeared herself to her many friends by her unfailing kindliness. That her great love for home and her church were her chief characteristics.
Rarely do we meet characters who so universally look upon the bright side of things, always finding something good and something for which to be thankful. Ever ready to speak a cheerful word and perform a helpful deed. Many will miss her genial smile and cheery word.
The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30, conducted by Rev. Lumbar. Long before the hour arrived for the services the church was packed to its capacity with friends and admirers who came to pay their last respects to their departed friend.
The body was laid in its final resting place in the Bedford cemetery.
[Note: The same obituary was published in the Bedford Free Press, March 20, 1924, page 8. Massachusetts Marriages, 1841-1915 and her husband's obituary give the marriage date as September 11, 1876.]
