Death of Edson Knight
Edson Knight, well known here, as he was practically raised in Winterset, died at the home of his father-in-law, Geo. Leeper, in Dexter last night about 9 o’clock from lock jaw. About two weeks ago Mr. Knight’s team ran away with him and as a result he sustained an injury to one of his fingers. Nothing was thought of it at the time but it grew worse steadily. Monday he hauled his cream to town as usual, but at that time he made the remark that he feared lock jaw and he believed he would never bring any more cream to town. Tuesday he was confined to the house and Wednesday convulsions set in and he died that night. He was about forty years of age and had a wife and two children. He had many friends here who are truly sorrowful for his sudden and untimely death. The funeral services will be held at Penn Center Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock.
Note: Burial was made in the Penn Center cemetery.

Eldora LEEPER [Parents] was born on 17 Sep 1880 in Dexter, Dallas, Iowa. She died on 12 Nov 1940 in Dexter, Dallas, Iowa. She was buried in Penn Center Cemetery, Madison, Iowa. Eldora married (MRIN:1942) Edson Colton KNIGHT on 16 Aug 1905 in Dexter, Dallas, Iowa.

OBITUARY: Dexter Library Obituary Collection
Dexter, Iowa
Eldora Leeper, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Leeper, was born in Madison county, Iowa, Sept. 17, 1880 and passed away at her late home in Dexter, Iowa, Nov. 12, 1940. She grew to young womanhood and attended the public schools in her home community and later on attended the Dexter Normal School. Aug. 15, 1905, she was united in marriage with Edson Knight; to this union were born two sons, Hugh C. Knight of Elkhorn, Iowa, and Dr. Edson Knight of Garwin, Iowa. May 25, 1910 she was bereft of her husband, after which she moved to Dexter with her parents. May 4, 1916, she was united in marriage with Wyman D. Knight. When quite young, she united with the Penn Center Methodist church and when she moved to town, her membership was transferred to this church. She served faithfully in various offices of the church and as long as her health permitted, was a faithful attendant at the services. She always had an encouraging word for all who were interested in the noblest and best things, which was the secret of her well lived life. She was a wonderful mother, a devoted wife and a loved sister, a real friend to everyone. She was one of the most appreciative women in the whole community; she loved the beautiful and the good. Her kindly words like the golden sunbeam, her jovial disposition won for her an everlasting friendship; her faith, hope and love for the best things will outlast time and live in a never-ending eternity. Her cheerful words were like the beautiful spring time; her character was like a beautiful day in June, attracting all with whom she came in contact. She was a charter member of the Rebekah Lodge in Dexter and was interested in the public welfare. Besides her sorrowing husband and two sons, she leaves three grandchildren. They are: Marilyn Knight of Elkhorn, Ia.; Bradley and Ronald Knight of Garwin, Ia. The following brothers and sisters: Frank Leeper of Dexter; F. W. Leeper of Chicago; Mrs. Essie Moore of Dexter; Ray Leeper of Modesto, Calif. and Mrs. Reva Maulsby of Chicago. One brother, Harry, and two sisters, with her parents, preceded her to the great beyond. Funeral from the Methodist church conducted by Rev. J. H. Freedline, last Wednesday afternoon.
