DEATH of MRS. OLLIE FERBER.
After a lingering illness, Mrs. Ollie FERBER passed away at her home Saturday evening. She had been in declining health
for several years and her critical illness covered a period of many weeks, during which she was confined to her bed. While
death was not unexpected announcement of her passing came as a shock to friends. She had lived in Mount Ayr and vicinity
since childhood, was active in church and lodge circles and was held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends. For many
years she had conducted the FERBER House, two blocks north of the square. Her cheerful, happy, generous and kind disposition
endeared her to all her acquaintances and at her death the community mourns.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon
at 2:30 at the Methodist church, being conducted by the pastor, Rev. E[dwin] S. MENOHER, and interment was in Rose Hill

1930, at the age of 58 years, three months and one day. On February 26, 1895, she was united in marriage to Francis Edward FERBER who passed away May 27, 1925. She united with the
