Friends were shocked to learn of the
sudden death of Reuben Dillion, who
passed away Monday night.
Although he had been in poor health
for many years, he was apparently
feeling fine and was taken suddenly
ill Monday night while talking to
friends in Bethel's store. He was
rushed home and lived but a short
Reuben Dillion, son of Riley and
Virginia Dillion, was born July 13, 1893,
at the home of his parents two miles
south of Middletown, Mo. This farm
was his home until the fall of 1939
when he moved to the Jones farm
where he and his family lived until
his passing June 3, 1940.
On December 22, 1920 he was mar-
ried to Miss Coral McCall and to this
union four children were born: Mrs.
George Cope of Bellflower, Mo.; Zella,
Coral Violet, and Gary Wane at the
home. Reuben was a kind and loving
husband and father contributing every-
thing he could to the comfort and
happiness of the little family that
meant so much to him. On July 25,
1918 he enlisted in the Army for sev-
vice during the World War. He saw
many months of service with the boys
and was honorably discharged on Jan-
uary 31, 1919. Reuben had been ailing
for a number of years and in the
fall of 1939 was treated at the Veter-
ans' Hospital at Wadsworth, Kansas
been advised by his fanmily physician
with little hope of recovery and had
his passing been sudden but not unex-
pected. Besides the loving wife and
children, those left to mourn his pass-
ing are his brother, Roy Dillion of
Buell, Mo., a sister, Mrs. Forest David-
son of Piedmont, Mo., John of Livonia,
Mo., and a host of other relatives and
The funeral was conducted Wednes-
day afternoon at the Methodist church
by Rev. A. T. Howell. A large crowd
attended. the flower girls were: Ida
Marie West, Nelson Cornelius, Rosalyn
Shaw, Wilma Gliser, Maurene Cope,
and Olene Cope. Harry Jones, Cecil
Angel, Andy Smith, Harry Berry, Joe
Meyer, and Mich Humphrey were acting
Because of his service during the
World War, the American Legion at-
tended the services in a body and at
the grave conducted a very impressive
service, concluding with the firing of
salute and playing of taps.
We join with the many friends in
extending sympathy to the bereaved
