IN MEMORIAM

In memoriam of Winfred Leroy Lipe who died December 1, 1898 at 11 p.m.

Winfred was born in Ottercreek township, Lucas county, Ia., Dec. 18, 1877, being at the time of his death 20 years, 11 months and 12 days of age. He was not a rugged boy, as he had been ill quite a little in his short life, but was kind and unassuming in his manner and at all times of a happy disposition.

We cannot say that the paths of his life were always strewn with flowers but he bore his troubles without a murmur, and when the dreaded disease, typhoid fever, took hold of his vital organs, he complained not of his afflictions, and passed quietly and peacefully to his home beyond.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Hauser at the M. E. church, where a large concourse of sympathizing friends met to pay their last tribute of respect, after which his remains were laid to rest in the Fletcher cemetery.

His bereaved wife, father and mother have the sympathy of the entire community in their lonely home.
