At nine months of age, while at church with his parents and without notice, Wilfred stretched backward severely hitting his head on the wooden pew which caused Cerebritis. He died several months later because doctors lacked the knowledge to effectively treat him.
A note written by Mom: "little Wilfred went home with Jesus, 18 Aug 1927".
1927 Obituary from newspaper:
"Charles Wilfred McDuffie, infant son and only child of Mr and Mrs Charles McDuffie, was born December 12, 1925. He answered the call of the father above, August 18, 1927, at the age of 20 months and six days.
Afflicted with Cerebritis, he was taken to St Elizabeth's Hospital nine weeks ago, where he remained for three weeks, being removed at that time to the care of his parents' home. His condition was at that time better, but became worse until eternal life ended his sufferings.
Doctors of Lafayette, Remington, and Monon were in attendance. Every effort possible to relieve his suffering was made by his mother and father. He had the loving and constant care of both grandmothers.
Until stricken by the fatal illness, he was with friends everywhere because of his alertness of mind and attractive, genial disposition. He leaves to mourn, his devoted mother and father and a host of relatives and friends."
