Laura Myrtle (Dixon) Dorscheid

Popular Young Lady,
  Victim Scarlet Fever

Daughter of Pioneers and
    Bride of a Year Left
       Infant Daughter

    The entire community of the Grande Prairie district was shocked to learn of the sudden death of Laura Myrtle Dixon, beloved wife of John Eugene Dorscheid, of Glen Leslie, and eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Dixon of Grande Prairie.
     About a week before her death, Mrs. Dorscheid developed a severe case of scarlet fever, and in spite of all that medical aid could do, passed away early last Saturday morning.
     She was born at Nanaimo, B.C., on June 7th, 1907, but as a child immigrated with her parents in 1911 to the Peace River country via the now famous Edson Trail. The family settled on land about 6 miles south-west of Beaverlodge, and ten years late moved to Grande Prairie. Mrs. Dorscheid attended public school at Appleton, and later graduated from the Grande Prairie High School. She spent one term at the Vermilion school of Agriculture, and one at the Calgary Normal School, but most of her life was lived in the Grande Prairie district. She taught at the Wellington, Canuck and Crystal Creek public schools. It was while teaching at the latter school that a friendship developed which resulted in her marriage about a year ago to John Eugene Dorscheid, of Glen Leslie. As in her life at home, so in her married life, she was very happy, and was a model homemaker.
     Mrs. Dorscheid was a lover of nature, and particularly of the Peace River country. She was always at home in the wilds, as was evidenced by her ability shown on several pack-rail rips into the western hills. She had a gentle and loveable disposition which endeared her to young and old alike. And a wide circle of friends share the loss of her influence and friendship, with her husband and family.
     Mrs. Dorscheid is survived by her husband; an infant daughter (Myrtle Dixon), born during her last illness; two sisters, Hazel, of Kitscoty; and Marion; and one brother Arthur.
     The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, with a service at the home of her parents, and interment was made at the Glen Leslie cemetery. A large concourse of friends thronged the lawn and boulevard at the Dixon home, where the service was conducted by the Rev. Nelson Chappel of Grande Prairie, assisted by Rev. J.E. McNeil, of Clairmont.
     The former spoke very highly of the esteem in which the deceased was held in the community, and expressed the sympathy that all felt for the bereaved. In closing his address the minister said to the congregation, “So live that your life will be as rich in the things that matter, and that you can come to its close here with as little regret, as the one whom we mourn for today.”
     Mr. J.W. Pickcard sang the solo, “Beautiful Isle of Somewhere” very feelingly. Mr. F.W. Lloyd played the piano during the service.
     A large number made the journey to the cemetery, where the remains were interned in a grave lined with spruce boughs. The pall bearers were Garnet Pratt, Kenner Foy, Erle O’Brien, Newton Grimmett, Earl Bates, and Rupert Carveth.
     Many beautiful floral tributes testified to the esteem in which the deceased was held, and expressed sympathy for the bereaved.
