Copenhaver, Myrtle Marie (Dickinson) (September 18, 1899 - October 24, 1928)


Mrs. Everett Copenhaver, Beloved by Legion of Friends, Passes Away Early Wednesday Morning

Unknown - October 25, 1928

Mrs. Everett T. Copenhaver, beloved by a legion of friends in the community to which she came, with her husband about seven years ago as a bride, passed away early Wednesday morning at the Douglas hospital.

Mrs. Copenhaver, Myrtle Marie Dickinson, was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Dickinson and was born at Pawnee City, Nebr., September 18, 1899. She grew to womanhood in Pawnee county, was a graduate of the Pawnee City high school and attended Nebraska Wesleyan university. She then taught in the public schools of her home town before being wedded to Mr. Copenhaver on June 16, 1921 in that city. The happy pair came to Douglas immediately following their marriage and this has since been their home. During the school years of 1922 and 1923 she was a teacher in the South side grade school.

Two children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Copenhaver: Ross D. and Constance Irene, who, with the heart-broken father are left to mourn the loss of a devoted mother and wife.

Early in life she united with the First Methodist church of Pawnee City, Nebr., and at the time of her death retained her membership. Besides the husband, and the two children, she leaves her mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Dickinson; two sisters: Mrs. Reid Marshall and Mrs. Hubert Tiller, all of Pawnee City.

To Mr. Copenhaver, the children, and grief-stricken family the sympathy of the entire community goes out. Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the Baptist church, Rev. J. Edward Ledbetter conducting the service under the auspices of Woodbine chapter, Eastern Star. The remains were taken to the old home for interment. Mr. Copenhaver accompanying them.
