Sunday's Obituary: Mrs. Ross E. Boyd [January 1920]

Perry Daily Chief, The | Perry, Iowa | 
Wednesday, January 07, 1920 | Page 1
Another obituary of a woman who's identity was only her husband's name:

"Many Attend the Funeral Services"
"The funeral services of Mrs. Ross E. Boyd, whose death Monday evening brought such a shock to her many Perry friends, were held this afternoon at 2:30 at the Methodist church, and were conducted by the pastor, Rev. A. T. Bishop.  There was a large attendance of friends at the services, all of them anxious to show by their presence, their beautiful floral tokens and their words of sympathy, the esteem in which they held the young woman and the sorrow they felt because of her death."


I did find a memorial at FindAGrave.com for an Ellen M. Boyd, buried at Violet Hill Cemetery, Perry, Dallas County, Iowa.  No indication is given as to her maiden name, however.
