DEATH of MRS. M. G. MAXWELL
The sad news of the death of [Delilah America (EVANS)] Mrs. M[atthew] G. MAXWELL was received in Mount Ayr
yesterday morning. She had been in poor health for a long time and for several weeks her condition had been
considered critical. A short time since, Mr. and Mrs. MAXWELL came from Sycamore, Ind., to Bedford, where
they lived before coming to Mount Ayr many years ago. Mrs. MAXWELL’s condition continued to grow more
serious, until a surgical operation was thought to be the only means of relief. She was taken to Des Moines
Monday and the operation was performed Tuesday. Mrs. MAXWELL did not recover from the effects of the
operation and passed away early yesterday morning. Mr. MAXWELL brought the remains to Mount Ayr last evening
and the funeral will be held from the Baptist church tomorrow morning at 11 o’clock, conducted by Rev. J. B.
CASH, assisted by Rev. Orr CAMPBELL. Her two daughters, [Maude] Mrs. G[eorge] C. WHISLER of Nebraska, and
Mrs. Bettie SCHERER of Greentown, Ind., are expected to arrive today. A telegram received this morning from
her son, Elmer MAXWELL of Poplar Bluff, Mo., stated that he could not come. Besides the husband and three
children, Mrs. MAXWELL leaves two brothers, William and Alex EVANS of Bedford, and five sisters to mourn her
