Duncan, Charles B.
Charles B. Duncan, 76, was born at Sacramento, CA. He came to Harrington in 1902 and worked for Charles W. Bethel on the farm. In 1904 he married Jolena Gibbins and that fall they moved to the farm south of town which Charlie purchased from John Kloft (a distant kin of the late Mrs. Edward Gooley, Sr.). The Duncans resided on this farm until about 1939, when Mrs. Duncan needed to be in town for medical treatment. Mrs. Duncan died soon after that.
Mr. Duncan entered Sacred Heart hospital last week Thursday because of a heart condition. He was doing nicely and Friday he collapsed and died from a heart attack. Graveside services were held at Hillcrest Cemetery.
Survivors include nieces: Alice Bims, Irene Holmgren; a nephew, Dr Underwood. Coming from out of town for the rites were Susan (Irene) Gibbins (sister of the late Mrs. Chas Duncan); Mr. & Mrs. Jack Bims (Alice, daughter of the late Grace Gibbins Weaver); Mr. & Mrs. Merle Holmgren (Irene, daughter of Hugh Gibbins); Mrs. Frances Duncan (daughter-in-law of Mr. Duncan) and her daughter Mrs. Emil Adler; and Mr. & Mrs. Eugene Cunningham. (Mrs. Cunningham is a niece of Mrs. C. B. Duncan's sister, the late Mrs. Eugene Page.) (Marion Duncan who lived in Tacoma, helped Mr. Duncan with the busy season farm operations, until his death two years ago. (Citizen-6 Feb 1959)
