Obituary for Elsie Elizabeth Gurr.

L M Leader

24 Apr 1913


Elsie Elizabeth Gurr was born in the town of Fountain Prairie, near Fall River, September 8, 1886 and died at her home in the village of Fall River, Wis., April 11, 1913. Her short life was all spent here, with the exception of one year when, with her parents, she lived at Elba, Dodge Col, Wis. Her education was given her by the public schools of our town, and by the Sabbath schools of our churches

On May 29, 1907, she was united in marriage with Mr. Frank E. Keefer, of Fall River. Four beautiful children, three daughters and a son, each bearing Heaven’s benediction, came to bless this home. All these, with the grief stricken husband, father, mother, and one sister, as well as a large circle of more distant relatives, and innumerable friends are left where tears and heartaches abound, to mourn the untimely death, but to look forward to that

“Land where beauty cannot fade,

Nor sorrow dim the eye;

Where true love shall not droop nor be dismayed,

And none shall ever die.”

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church, Sunday afternoon, Rev. A. A. Bennett officiating.

A large number of relatives and friends from neighboring places were in attendance. — Columbus Republican
