Noyes, Myrta Belle (9 June 1873 - 26 Nov. 1939)

Great sorrow came to a host of friends Monday morning, when it was learned that Mrs. C. J. Noyes had passed away between ten and eleven o’clock Sunday night, after a short illness. Although suffering with a heart ailment for several years, very few of her friends knew of the affliction. Wednesday of last week, she entertained the study club, of which she had been an active member since its organization. The latter part of the week Mrs. Noyes contracted a severe cold, which hastened the heart attack which caused her death.

Myrta Belle Snyder was born on a farm near York Center, north of Neillsville, on June 9, 1873. She was a life long resident of Clark County. Her father died when she was quite young, and after her mother’s remarriage the family moved to Humbird. This was in the year 1886, and since that time this village has been her home. She attended Humbird high school, and for several years following taught in the surrounding rural schools, in which profession she was very successful.

On July 3rd, 1897, she was united in marriage with Mr. Charles J. Noyes, also of Humbird, and to this union was born one son, Edmund K. Noyes, who is also a resident of this village and at present a member of the high school faculty.

In 1926, Mr. and Mrs. Noyes purchased the Humbird Drug Store from the late John W. Vogel, and have conducted the store since that time.

Deceased is survived by her husband and son, three sisters: Mrs. Mina Cole, of this village, Mrs. Mabel Hart, of Mondovi, and Mrs. Maud Bollom, of Neillsville, Wis. Her step father, Silas Delano, also many other relatives and friends are mourning her death. Her mother passed away a number of years ago and also one sister, Mrs. Maggie Fradenburg.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock, the Rev. C. H. Pierstorff preaching the burial sermon. A quartet sang, "Abide With Me," and "Nearer My God, To Thee," and Rev. and Mrs. Pierstorff sang, "We Are Going Down the Valley." Pallbearers were H. W. Stallard, A. C. Rosolack, W. M. Rosolack, A. W. Short, H. H. Nibbe, and Peter Fradenburg. Many beautiful floral emblems testified to the esteem Mrs. Noyes was held in the community. And many friends assembled at the church for the last rites and accompanied the family to Mentor Cemetery where their loved one was buried.
