Obituary: Linda Balser

“Airman Family Funeral Tuesday”

MADISON, WISCONSIN (January 17, 1966) - The funeral for Mr. and Mrs. Edward B. Myres and their infant son, Edward B. Jr., who were killed in a one-car auto accident Saturday near Howe, Ind., will be at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in Bethel Lutheran Church, the Rev. Robert Borgwardt, pastor, officiating.

Mrs. Myres was a 1965 graduate of Central-University High School and is survived by her mother, Mrs. Irma Balser, and her grandmother, Mrs. Hugo Sorge, both of 1110 Emerald St.

Mr. Myres is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carey Myres; two brothers, Carey Jr. and Robert; and a sister, Mrs. George Brown, all of Niles, Ohio.

Burial will be in Forest Hill cemetery. Friends may call after 4 p.m. today at the Memorial funeral home, 235 King St. and after noon at the church.

Note: The above was taken from the Obituary Section of the Wisconsin State Journal. At this time, obituaries were still “news stories,” written by newspaper staff, not families. This probably accounts for the fact the "Mrs. Myres” is never identified by her first name. She was know to her classmates at Central as Linda Balser. NG

Thanks for sharing this obituary, Nadine. Linda was my first cousin. Of all the funerals I ever attended this was the most sad with all 3 of this young family dying in such a horrible car accident. I was only 13 at the time but they will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, dear family.
