Mrs. J.H. Yarger Passes On - A Brief Illness Ends her Useful Life Last Friday - The great heart of McCook was tenderly touched on Friday afternoon when the news became public that Mrs. John H. Yarger had passed away. That she was ill was known to her many McCook friends, but that it was likely to result fatally and so soon was not dreamed of, even by the immediate members of the family. Pneumonia developed, and in her weakened condition, she was utterly unable to withstand the dread disease, which closed her useful life at about two o'clock Friday afternoon. Mrs. Yarger was among the early settlers of McCook, and by her quiet womanly ways, filling all the demands of home and church, endeared herself to a large circle of friends, who will join with the invalid husband and members of the family in tenderest sympathy in their loss and sorrow. Brief services were conducted at the home, Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, by Rev. Neal Johnson of the Methodist church, which were largely attended by deeply sympathetic friends, many lovely floral tributes attaining the love and esteem for the departed and the heart throbs for the living, after which interment was made in Longview cemetery. The pall bearers were members of the G.A.R., to which the bereaved invalid husband belongs. An especial sympathy goes out to Mr. Yarger, who has been for over a year a quite helpless invalid, and who has been the particular care of the departed helpmeet. Mr. and Mrs. Oscar P. Yarger of Boulder, Colorado, he the only son of the departed, and her brother Mr. John Patterson of Iowa, were present from away with the home relatives at the funeral. Obituary - Mary E. Patterson was born in Havana, Ill., May 21, 1854. When a mere child she moved to Knoxville, Iowa, where she grew to womanhood and in 1873 married J.H. Yarger. They came west in 1884. She joined the Methodist church in Knoxville in 1868 and has held her membership in the Methodist church ever since that time. She was one of the charter members of the McCook M.E. church and worked faithfully until her health caused her to remain at home. She leaves behind three children, Oscar P. Yarger, Hattie B. Clark and Edna Stewart. Her mother love reached out deeply for her children and grandchildren but for all this she gave up everything for the care of her invalid husband. Monday 30 Apr 1914
