Obituary of Helen Drew
On Monday morning, September 30, 1912, at about 2 o'clock, Helen Drew, the daughter of Mrs. Alma Drew, departed this life at her home in St. Lawrence, S. D. Though she had been in failing health for some time, death came somewhat suddenly at last, for she was out even as late as last Thursday, September 26.
Deceased was born in North Yakima, Washington, March 20, 1894, and had been resident in St. Lawrence for upwards of seven years. She was a faithful and consistent member of the local Presbyterian church and Sunday school, also of the C. E. society, and general testimony is borne to her sterling character, and to the sweetness of her disposition.
The funeral, the arrangements for which were superintended by Mr. Sedam, was held on Tuesday afternoon. The funeral service took place in the Presbyterian church, the Rev. G. Issac officiating. The choir effectively rendered the following appropriate hymns. "Peace, Perfect Peace"; "The Lord Is My Shepherd", (a favorite hymn of the departed), "Asleep In Jesus", and "Nearer My God To Thee". Mrs C. H. Williams and Miss Muriel Pitzer also rendered, in a sympathetic way, "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere". The minister's address was based upon John XIV: 1-4, after which Rev. J. L. Walsh, pastor of the M. E. church, led in prayer.
After the service the cortege departed for Miller, where the remains were interred.
The chief mourners were Mrs. Alma Drew, mother; Paul Drew, brother; Mr. J. C. McCool, uncle; and Mr. and Mrs. Edgar McCool, cousins.
The following girl friends of the departed acted as pall-bearers: Emily Flint, Klyde Van Brunt,, Elsie Thompson, Alma Nelson, Clara Pitzer and Nina Harris.
Many friends sent flowers, among them the Presbyterian Sunday school and C.E. society, Epworth League, friends in St. Lawrence, high school girls, Mr. and Mrs Fritts, Mrs. Harmann and Mrs. Goyke.
Much sympathy for the mourners, particularly the mother, is felt thru-out the town and district.
CARD OF THANKS
To all our friends in St. Lawrence who in our hour of trouble gave us so unstintedly sympathy and help, we wish to give to you our sincere thanks, and when your time of trouble comes may you be equally blest.
J. C McCool
