MRS. EDITH ANDERSON
Mrs. Edith Anderson, well known Chariton lady, died at her home in this city on Wednesday evening, October 13, 1937, after a lingering illness.
Funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Paul H. Hicks, of the Methodist church, were held at the Beardsley Funeral Home, Friday afternoon at two o'clock, and burial was in the Chariton cemetery. The floral tributes were profuse and beautiful and bore testimony to the high regard in which she was held, as well as sympathy for those left in bereavement.
Edith Fountain, daughter of Moses and Malinda Fountain, was born in English township, Lucas county, Iowa, on October 17, 1877. She grew to young womanhood in this vicinity and was united in marriage to Dr. Walter Anderson on December 25, 1899. To this union one son was born.
Mrs. Anderson was a woman of strong character and the highest and noblest qualities. She was unselfish and sacrificing in her labors for others and all who knew her will hold her in tender and loving remembrance.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her mother, Mrs. Malinda Callahan, of Chariton, and one son, Richard Anderson and wife, of Ottumwa, and many other relatives and a large number of friends.
