The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1931

KILLED IN FALL FROM HAY LOFT

W. C. JIRICEK Fatally Injured at His Farm Monday Forenoon.

W. [Wesley] C. JIRICEK, well known and highly respected farmer of Rice township, was fatally injured Monday forenoon about 10 o'clock when he fell from the hay loft at his farm about two miles southwest of Mount Ayr. Mr. JIRICEK and his sons had just begun hay harvest and the first load of hay had been brought from the field and preparations were being made to place it in the mow in the barn. When the first forkload of hay was hoisted it lodged in the doorway and Mr. JIRICEK ascended the ladder for the purpose of releasing it. He succeeded in releasing the hay and the fork was returned for the second load when Mr. JIRICEK lost his footing and fell a distance of approximately 20 feet, to the ground. It was at once realized that he was seriously injured and a physician was summoned and examination revealed that several ribs were broken. After receiving treatment the patient rallied and rested easily until about one o'clock p.m. when he was suddenly seized with pains in the abdomen and life passed out before a physician could reach the home.

Mr. JIRICEK was born [May, 1867] in Bohemia, Austria, and came with his parents to America when he was seven years of age. The family settled in Tama county, where he grew to manhood. In the year 1894 he was united in marriage with Miss Lucy BERAN in Poweshiek county. Mr. and Mrs. JIRICEK established their home on a farm in Tama county, where they resided until 1916 when they moved to Ringgold county. Mr. JIRICEK is survived by his wife, one daughter, Mrs. Dever ROBERTS of Des Moines, and two sons, Edward and Roy, at home. One daughter, Nora, died in 1908.

The body was taken Tuesday afternoon in the Rhoades funeral coach to Victor, where funeral services were held yesterday (Wednesday) at 10 a.m. at St. Bridget's Catholic church, conducted by Rev. Father COURTNEY, and interment was in Calvary cemetery at Victor [Iowa County, Iowa]. The funeral party which accompanied the body to Victor was composed of Mrs. JIRICEK, the two sons, Mr. and Mrs. Dever ROBERTS and their children, Marion, Billy and Dorothy.
