Funeral services for Ward C. Crumb, 79, pioneer Rockford lumber dealer who died of a heart attack at his home in Ames, Iowas, were held last night at First Baptist church in Ames. The body will be sent to Rockford for burial at 5:15 p.m. today at Greenwood cemetery. Mr. Crumb's death followed by a day that of his brother, Haskell A.

Ward C. Crumb was born January 26. 1863, in Unadilla, New York, and came to Rockford from Chicago in the 1880's. He was associated with his father, the late R. W.

The firm was taken over by the brothers following their father's death and was sold about 30 years ago when Haskell Crumb retired.
Mr. Crumb married Nellie Bennett in Belvidere September 23, 1885. His wife died in 1935. Since 1933 Mr. Crumb resided at the home of a daughter, Mrs. C. S. Jackson, in Ames.
