It is with profound sorrow that The Times chronicles the death of Mrs. Ernest Lyon-Oliver at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Lyon, at Inwood, Saturday morning. A short time ago Mr. Oliver received notice that he would be transferred from the St. Paul to the Chicago Station of the United States Weather Bureau, after having been stationed at St. Paul for several years. A few weeks ago Mrs. Oliver and her little daughter went to Inwood for a visit at the parental home before moving to their new home in Chicago, and shortly afterward her little daughter contracted diphtheria. She recovered nicely but Mrs. Oliver, in caring for her, contracted the disease. Other complications appeared, first tonsilitis, and later bronchitis and in spite of all that could be done for her, her condition became so alarming that Mr. Oliver was sent for and arrived the day before her death. Myrtle Lyon was brought up on her father's farm over in Lyon Township across the river. The writer learned to know her as a girl just blooming into beautiful young womanhood and thought nature was very kind in the endowment of physical charms she was even more generous in endowing her with charming qualities of mind and heart. Some twelve years ago she was joined in marriage to Ernest Oliver, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Oliver of this city. Besides her husband and daughter who are left to mourn a devoted wife and loving mother, she leaves her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Lyons, of Inwood, (IA), a sister, Mrs. Eva Lyons-Mak, of Inwood, and three brothers, E.C. Lyon, and Ellis Lyon of Inwood, and Grant Lyon, who recently married and moved to an Iowa town of which we do not recall the name. Many relatives of Canton and vicinty and a large circle of friend sincerely mourn her untimely death.
