Death of Reuben Evans Tuesday of This Week
Former Businessman of Dell Rapids Passes Away After a Long Illness; Funeral Friday
There is a sorrow in the community over the death of Reuben Evans, one of our fine young men, who passed away on Tuesday afternoon, after a lingering illness. He was 34 years old, 4 months 14 days old.
Mr. Evans was born at Granville, Iowa, December 8, 1895, his parents being Mr. and Mrs. Nick Evans. He moved with his parents to a farm east of Dell Rapids, in Logan Township, where he lived until 11 years ago, when he and his brother, John, bought a store in Dell Rapids. He was in business here until a year ago last September, when an account of failing health he went with his family to Phoenix, Arizona. For a time he was better, and it was hoped he would regain his health. Then later he became worse, and realizing that he could not live long he longed to be with the home folks again, so they came back, arriving here a week ago last Saturday. It was realized that the end was not far away.
Mr. Evans was married to Katherine Kennedy of Luverne, Minnesota, October 8, 1925. His wife and their three-year-old son survive him, also his parents, three brothers, John of Dell Rapids, Bill of Trent, and Ray of Madison; six sisters, Mrs. Mary Neville and Mrs. Clara Foster of Chester, Mrs. Kate Brown of Flandreau, Mrs. Jean Cramer and Mrs. Irma Evans of Waterloo, Iowa, and Mrs. F. Entringer of Dell Rapids.
The funeral will be held at the church at 10 o'clock tomorrow (Friday). The business places of Dell Rapids will be closed during the funeral.
