May 1933

Mary Magdaline Norris, youngest child of Jacob and Mary Jane Norris, was born Jun 8, 1878, in Appanoose County, Iowa, and passed away at the Centerville hospital May 1, 1933, after a short illness at the age of 54 years, 10 months and 23 days. She was united in marriage to James E. Dershem May 12, 1903.
She was converted and united with the M.E. church in Numa at the age of 12 years. She was organist at the church for five or six years, attended church and Sunday school until the failing health of her husband prevented it. She was of a cheerful disposition making friends with everyone who made her acquaintance and was never happier then when doing something to make some one happy.
She will be greatly missed in the home and community. She leaves to mourn her untimely departure her devoted husband, James E. Dershem, three sisters, Glendora and Pheba at home, Lona (sp) Brown of Seymour, three brothers, Lewis of near Numa, Guthrie of Cedar Rapids, Charlie G. of Cincinnati, and a host of nieces and nephews and friends. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, four brothers and two sisters.
Funeral services were held May 3rd in the Jerome M.E. church, conducted by Rev. Lanning of Centerville, and she was laid to rest in the Jerome cemetery.
