Dorothy Jimmerson

The Payette Enterprise
Thursday, September 07, 1911


Last Friday Mrs. R. L. Jimmerson, an aged and well known resident of Payette, passed away at her home north of the city after a very short illness of pneumonia. Mrs. Jimmerson was sick but six days and was not thought at any time to be in a serious condition but on Friday a sudden turn for the worse came and she passed away.

Mrs. Jimmerson came to Payette with her husband and family fifteen years ago from Illinois and during the long term of her residence here she became known to her friends and acquaintances as a lady of estimable quality. She was a member of the Baptist church and in her earlier life was an earnest, faithful worker in the church but of late years on account of her extreme age she had not been so active.

Mrs. Jimmerson was sixty-four years of age at the time of her death and leaves to mourn her loss three sons, Wesley, Presley and Robert, all substantial ranchers living near Payette and a daughter, Mrs. C. G. Goodwin of this city. She also leaves a sister and two step sons living in Illinois who were unable to be present at the funeral which was conducted at the Baptist church of this city, by the rev. Van Engelon. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery by the side of her husband, Robert L. Jimmerson who died four years ago.
