B. J. AURIT PASSED AWAY TUESDAY EVENING
B. J. Aurit passed away at his home in Rock Valley Tuesday evening after a lingering illness of several weeks. In fact, he had not been well for years, having suffered greatly at times with rheumatism, but his family and friends did not realize that the end was so near. He was taken to his bed four or five weeks ago and gradually grew weaker day by day until the final summons came.
Mr. Aurit was a man of a generous, kind and happy disposition, who invariably made his acquaintances his friends. He had a good word and a cheerful greeting for all and he was highly esteemed by all who knew him.
He had lived in Rock Valley practically all his life, coming here with his parents when he was eight months old. He conducted a barber shop in Rock Valley for many years, though of late he had not been able to work in his shop much.
Mr. Aurit was born April 4, 1878, at Elk Grove, Wisconsin, and had attained the age of 43 years, 11 months and 3 days. He was united in marriage January 7, 1901, to Maggie McKenna. To this union four children were born, Lee, Aileen, Marguerette and Eleanor, all of whom are at home with their mother.
Besides his wife and aged father, he leaves three brothers and four sisters as follows: Henry of Mankato, Minn; John of Dubuque, Iowa; Jerry of Rock Valley; Mrs. Kate Schemmer of Omaha, Neb., Mrs. Elsie Stengal of Canton, S.D., Mrs. Cora McElroy of Rock Valley, and Mrs. Maria Warren of Spencer.
Funeral services will be held this Friday morning at St. Mary's church in Rock Valley. The bereaved relatives have the sympathy of many friends in their great sorrow.
