Mrs. Helen Meyer

Helen Maria Meyer, nee Wehrenberg was born October 12, 1854, in Hanover, Germany, and came to America at the age of 14 years and made her home with the Kirchhoff family south of Arlington Heights.

In April, 1872, she was joined in the bonds of holy matrimony to Carl Meyer, at Palatine, Ill., and resided in that vicinity all her life. Of this union six children were born, four sons and two daughters, of whom three sons died at an early age.

Mr. Meyer preceded his wife in death in the year 1910, whereupon Mrs. Meyer made her home in the village of Palatine until February of this year when, due to illness and advanced age she found it advisable to go to live with her daughter in Jackson, Michigan, where she died on the morning of September 3, 1941, at the age of 86 years, 10 months and 22 days. Her funeral was held on Sunday, September 7, at the Palatine Lutheran church, Pastor Koaster officiating and her remains were committed to the ground in Lutheran cemetery at Palatine.

She leaves to mourn an only son, Henry Meyer, Lake Zurich, Ill., and two daughters, Mrs. Clark Keyes of Jackson, Mich., and Mrs. William Devermann, of Forest Park, Illinois, besides 19 grand children and 25 great grand children.
