His obituary from Whiting, Kansas...
"Mr. G. A. Fiester died in this city last Monday afternoon. His death being caused my paralysis. Although the end was expected daily for a week or more before his death it was none the less a shock to the relatives and friends who had hopes as we always do that something would yet cause a change for better. Although the paralytic stroke partially affected his brain, he regained use of it sometimes before death came, and recognized his family. His suffering during the week's illness was very severe. He was given every attention by physician, wife, sons and daughters as well as neighbors and friends, but death proved stronger than all combined. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at the United Baptist Church, Rev. James Lewis afficiating, and the remains were taken to Griggsville, Illinois for internment. Mr. Fiester was one of the oldest settlers here and had, by thrift and economy, amassed a considerable estate. He leaves a large family, many many grandchildren and some great-grandchildren, all counted among our best citizens."
