Mr. Meyers died thirty years ago after which she lived with her daughters at Phillips. On her hundredth birthday anniversary she traveled by automobile from Phillips to Oak Center. Until a year ago she read considerably and she enjoyed good health until a week preceding her death. She arose daily and assisted with the light housekeeping. Of her eight children, four survive, Mrs. Anna Breitengross and Mrs. Margaret Thompson of Phillips, A. J. Meyers of Abbotsford and George Meyers of Spokane.
