Mrs. Otto Weyhmiller, nee Mabel Anderson, was born at Hartford, Wis., on Sept. 23, 1888. When a child she came to Clark county with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Anderson.

She received her education in the schools of Hartford , Loyal and Unity and graduated from the Loyal high school in 1906. She taught school for several years in the town of Beaver.

Mrs. Weyhmiller died at her home here Thursday evening, Oct. 1, at 6:30, of pneumonia. She had been a partial invalid for 18 years, and for almost two years had been confined to her bed.
