THE WESTERN STAR, 15 October 1915

On last Tuesday, October 12, 1915, the sad news was phoned from Medicine Lodge to this city that Miss Beatrice Myers had died at 9:30 that morning at the home of her father, J. W. Myers, in that city. It was
known here that Miss Myers had been a sufferer from typhoid fever for about 13 weeks, but it was thought she was growing better. On last Friday, however, she became worse, and from that time her vitality gradually ebbed away. Funeral services were held ay 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday and a few hours later the body was started for Sedgwick, Kans., where, on Wednesday, it was laid to rest by the side of the mother, who died about two years ago.

Mrs. Myers family moved from near Wichita to this city during the summer of 1914. For a time Mr. Myers conducted the Novelty store and bakery. In September, 1914, Miss Beatrice became a member of the senior class in the Coldwater high school. Throughout the term she was one of the most faithful of the 20 students in the class, and she was graduated with the Class of 1915. At all times she ranked well in her studies, and her genial, hopeful disposition and her constant devotion to high ideals won for her the esteem and the admiration of every member of the class, and to them the news of her untimely death comes with the keenest sense of sorrow. She was a splendid type of the noble, Christian young lady, true to every conviction of Right and Duty and unswerving in her devotion to the one great purpose of her life - to be of service to others. Her ambition was to be a teacher, and had she lived many more years of her life would probably have been spent in the class room. With sadness which comes with the news of the ending of this beautiful young life there is to all who knew her, an inspiration to better effort and better living. The bereaved family have the sincere sympathy if many Coldwater friends. At the time of her death, Miss Myers was a few months past 20 years of age. The family moved from this city to Medicine Lodge about 5 months ago.
