Jennie Keyes Matson

Mrs. A. P. Matson Passed Away at 8:30 Yesterday
Suffered from Cancer for Some Time.
Funeral Services Friday, Oct 14th at Free Methodist Church.
Death claimed another of our highly respected residents when on Wednesday morning, Oct 12 at 8:30 Mrs. A. P. Matson passed to her eternal reward with her Maker.
Jennie Keyes was born at Jessep, IA on Jan 19, 1875 and was united in marriage to Anton P. Matson June 6, 1907 at St. Paul MN. They resided at Midland SD three years and one year in Nebraska, residing in this village the past 9 years.
The lady had been ailing for some time and last March she was taken to Rochester, returning to Vienna Sept 1st to await the end and relief from that dreaded disease, cancer.
Besides the loving husband she leaves 2 children, Melvin 11 years old and Louise 7. Also two sisters, Miss Anna Keyes of Chicago and Miss Annias Keyes of Minneapolis and two brothers Marion of Spade, NE and William of Gordon NE are left to mourn her departure.
The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon, Friday, at 2 o'clock from the home in the Dr. Hendriksen building, followed by services at the Free Methodist church Rev. Donoghue officiating. Interment will be made in the Dixon cemetery.
The deceased lady was a Christian woman of the highest type and practiced the faith daily and the bereaved relatives have that consolation that her earthly troubles are over and that she is now reaping the benefits of having lived a good life. The sympathy of the community is extended to the family.
