The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1928

DEATH of BERT F. PALMER.

After a critical illness of more than six weeks' duration, during which he had been confined to his bed most of the time, Bert F. PALMER passed away Tuesday afternoon about 2:30 o'clock at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. S. PALMER, in east Mount Ayr. He had been in ill health for more than twenty years and his ailment was such as to baffle the skill of physicians. Advice of the best of specialists was sought and surgical operations were performed, but despite the efforts of skilled physicians and surgeons only temporary relief could be effected. He submitted to his first surgical operation nineteen years ago. Early in July of this year his condition became such as to be alarming and he went to Iowa City for examination at the University hospital. Here he was advised that a surgical operation could at the best result only in temporary relief and that in his weakened condition it would not be advisable to attempt another operation.

Bert F. PALMER was born in Kellerton, Iowa, December 7, 1884, and died at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. S. PALMER, in Mount Ayr, Iowa, September 4, 1928, aged 43 years, nine months and 27 days. When ten years of age he came with his parents to Mount Ayr, where he grew to manhood. In early manhood he learned the printer's trade in the Ringgold Record office, where he proved himself conscientious, industrious and loyal in the discharge of every duty. It was on account of ill health that he gave up work in the printing office after mastering the trade. He was later employed in the automobile registration department in the state house, Des Moines, but was compelled to give up the work on account of declining health. Through all the years of his illness he was courageous and hopeful and during his last illness bore his suffering with christian fortitude.

Mr. PALMER made the good confession and became a member of the Mount Ayr Church of Christ in February, 1907, under the ministry of Rev. L. C. SWAN, and during all the years as long as his health would permit took active interest in church work. At his death the community mourns. He is survived by his parents and one brother, C. S. PALMER, Jr., of Mount Ayr.

The funeral service will be held this (Thursday) afternoon at 2:30 at the Church of Christ and will be conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. Harold SMITH [with interment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr].
