Minerva Jesse d. June 3, 1916


Dies at Waynesville- Body Shipped to Mexico for Interment

Many friends in Mexico of Mrs. Minerva Jesse, beloved wife of Rev. J.S. Jesse, were pained to hear of her death at her home at Waynesville, Mo., last Saturday morning. Mexico was formerly her home. The body was shipped here for interment. Rev. O. Olin Green, pastor of the Mexico Baptist Church, held funeral service Sunday afternoon, burial in Elmwood.

Mrs. Jesse was 60 years old. She was a sister of Mr. Granville Reed who died at Columbia and was buried here last week. The husband survives; he is one of the most popular Baptist ministers in the State and pastor of the Baptist church at Waynesville. The following children survive: J.C. Jessie, Artesia, New Mexico; Rev. Lewis Jesse, of Texas; Mrs. Wiley Atkins, Lebanon, Mo., and Mrs. Nancy McKamey, Waynesville, Mo.

Mrs. Jesse was a woman of high Christian ideals. Beloved and faithful in every good work, the world is poorer for her passing.
