About Jesse Luther Gilmer

Birth: Apr. 17, 1893 Death: Oct. 13, 1927

Gospel Herald - Vol. XX, No. 30 - October 27, 1927, pages 671, 672 Gilmer.--Jesse Luther Gilmer was born in Franklin Co., W. Va., April 17, 1893. He was one of five children born to Samuel and Maggie Gilmer. Samuel Gilmer was a Methodist minister and was called by death when Jesse was but two and one half years old. At the age of sixteen years he confessed Christ and united with the Methodist Church, having come to Filer in March, 1916. Jan. 5, 1918, he was united in marriage with Sister Mabel Shenk, to which union were born six children. A little more than a year ago his health began to fail but since March he suffered much and failed more rapidly. August 1 he went to Portland hoping to get relief, but his condition was found more serious than he had realized. While several lines of treatment were resorted to he gradually grew worse. He died Oct. 13, 1927; aged 34 y. 5 m. 26 d. Death was due to a cancerous condition of the stomach and intestines. Bro. Gilmer was much interested in the work of the church, and was willing to serve in any capacity called upon. During the last year he took special interest in, and yearned much for, the welfare of the cause of Christ. He was superintendent of the Sunday school at the time of his death. There remain to mourn his departure, his companion, 6 children, his mother, 2 brothers, and a host of friends. Funeral services were conducted at Portland, Oreg., Thursday evening, in charge of Bro. P. E. Roth, and many friends had gathered who has ministered to his needs, and comforted him during his stay in Portland. His end was peaceful and he passed to that rest of which he had so often expressed his hope of attaining, through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ who he had endeavored to serve. His body was taken to his home at Filer, Ida., where further services were held by Bros. N. A. Lind of Albany, Oreg., and S. Honderich, in the presence of many sympathizing friends and relatives.
