Mrs. Mary Myers Died Recently

Although friends of Mary G. Myers knew she was in the Pittsburgh Hospital due to an operation, the news that she had passed away Friday morning, July 30 at 4 o'clock was a great shook to the entire community. When the news of her departure was sent abroad it cast a shadow of gloom over a wide circle of friends.

Mary Gertrude Kiester Myers was born October 30, 1901.

She was a daughter of Harmon Kiester and Mariah Pollum Kiester.

She was united in marriage to John Clarence Myers on May 29, 1918. Mr. Myers survives her, and mourns the loss of a devoted and loving companion.

To this union were born two sons and one daughter, namely; Harmon, Eugene and Betty. She leaves to mourn her loss a mother, father and three brothers and three sisters.

Funeral services were conducted at her home Sunday afternoon, August 1, at 2 o'clock, Rev. Stewart of Clarion.

The trio sang "Going Down the Valley" and "Good Night and Good Morning." The many beautiful floral tributes and the large number of relatives and friends who attended the funeral gave evidence of the high esteem in which te (sic) deceased was held.

The body was laid to rest in the Churchville Cemetery.

A precious one from us has gone
A voice we love is still,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled,
For mother dear has left us,
So we must cease to weep,
And think of what is promised
Where we all hope to meet.
Her pleasant face we see no more,
Her body lies at rest,
And her immortal soul will reign,
Forever with the blest,
Lord may angels watch above us,
Keep us from error free,
May they guard, guide and love us,
Till like mother we go to thee.
