Stranger Died In City

Mr. Maguire died Sunday afternoon in this city after an illness of one year. He and his son, Neely had been traveling for his health and were on their way to Eva, Okla.,to visit his daughter, Mrs. W. N. Wever. While camping in Canyon he was taken suddenly ill. Mr. Monroe found him very sick in camp and carried him to a house where he was tenderly cared for by the good people of Canyon. He was poor in this world's goods, but was rich with the grace of God. Just before he passed away he called his son and daughter to his bed side and told them he would soon leave them, but to meet him in Heaven.

Mrs. W. N. Wever came to his bed side. The good people of Canyon cared for him tenderly. He was laid away in Dreamland cemetery. Bro. Nichols conducted the funeral service.

The above was copied from microfilm in the office of THE CANYON NEWS on 25 September 1980, and is a true and exact copy to the best of my ability.
