Winford Wayne Whisler, son of Everett and Grace Whisler, was born near Bunch, Iowa, August 5, 1915, and departed this life February 21, 1932, at the age of 16 years, 6 months and 16 days.
He leaves to mourn his departure his father and mother, seven brothers and six sisters; Flavel of Centerville, Iowa; Mrs. Mabel Bain of West Grove, Iowa; Keith of Illinois; Mrs. Blanche Lippert of Unionville, Iowa; Mrs. Margaret Morrison, Milo, Dale, Cleve, Wade, Dwight, Lilah, Genevieve, and Vada, Bunch, Iowa. He also leaves his grandmother, Mrs. Jane Whisler and a host of other relatives and friends.
Wayne was a kind and obedient son, always had a smile and kind word for everyone.
He will be sadly missed, not only by the family, but by all who knew him.
Although his illness was of short duration, he was faithful to the end and his last words were: "I am ready to go, as the Lord has opened the Pearly Gates for me, and I will lead the way where all good people go."
The funeral services were held at the Bunch Christian church on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30, conducted by Rev. Orlando Ogden.
Three songs: "Sometime We'll Understand", "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," and "God Will Take Care of You", were sung by Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Tarrence, Mr. and Mrs. John Burger and Mrs. Susie Roberts.
The pallbearers were six of Wayne's boy friends: Ralph Strunk, Windell Bridgeman, Doyle Swaim, Edwin Cummings, Rex Lippert and Ralph Morrison.
The body was laid to rest in the Taylor cemetery three miles west of Bunch.
