DR. HARRY RAMBO, The Zanesville Signal, May 15, 1924
"Dr. Harry Rambo Called By Death At Denver, Col."
"Body Brought Here Friday Morning"
"His Wife Critically Ill In California"
Relatives in this city were notified late Wednesday of the death of Dr. Harry M. Rambo, aged 30, only son of Dr. C.M. Rambo, of South Fourth street, which occured in a sanitarium in Denver, Colo., at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning from a lingering illness following influenza and pneumonia, contracted while in the service of his country during the World war. Mrs. C.M. Rambo and his sister, Miss Florence Rambo, were at his bedside when he died.
Shortly before the death of Dr. Rambo, his sister received a telegram announcing that his wife, Mrs. Pearl Holden Rambo, was critically ill in San Diego, where she has been for the past several week taking treatment. Miss Rambo left immediately for California, while Mrs. Rambo will accompany the body of Dr. Rambo to this city.
Dr. Harry Rambo was born on North Seventh street, but at an early age was taken to Memphis, Tenn., where he received his education, graduating from the Central high school of Memphis. Immediately he entered the University of Tennessee, completing his course in six years, four years of which were spent in the study of medicine in the medical department of the University of Tennessee. He was graduated from the university in 1917 and became an intern in the Memphis General hospital.
When the United States entered the World war, Dr. Rambo volunteered in the medical service and was sent to Fort Ogelthorpe, and later was transferred to Hoboken, N.Y., to enter the transport service. He was made first lieutenant and remained in transport service throughout the war. On his last trip across the Atlantic, he contracted influenza, which developed into pneumonia from which he never fully recovered.
Following his discharge from the army Dr. Rambo came to Zanesville and opened an office on South Fourth street, opposite the office of his father, but after practicing for about a year was forced to give up his profession because of ill health. Several months ago he went to the western states in hopes his health might be improved, but his condition grew steadily worse.
In 1918 he was united in marriage to Miss Pearl Holden, daughter of the late Dr. James L. Holden. Besides his widow, Dr. Harry Rambo is survived by his father, Dr. C.M. Rambo, prominent physician and surgeon of this city, and one sister, Miss Florence Rambo. Dr. Rambo was affiliated with the Masonic lodge, being a member of the Blue Lodge in Hoboken, N.J., and the chapter, council, grotto and commandery in this city. He was also a member of the B.P.O. Elks and the Modern Woodmen of America.
The body will arive in Zanesville at 10:40 o'clock Friday morning and will be taken to the home of Dr. C.M. Rambo on South Fourth street, where the funeral services will be conducted at 3:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The remains will be placed in a crypt in the Woodlawn cemetery, and the services at the crypt will be private. Cyrene commandery No. 10, Knights Templars will have charge of the services.
