OBITUARY – Lee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tal C. Sutton, was born in Johnson county near Cook, Nebr., November 25, 1900, and departed this life July 16, 1930 at the age of 29 years, 7 months and 21 days. He moved with his parents to Wolbach when a boy four years old and lived here since that time. He attended school in Wolbach and graduated from the high school here. He has not been well since he was fourteen and for the last nine and one half years he has been confined to his wheel chair. During all the years of his affliction, he bore his suffering without any complaint. He had a smile and a word of good cheer for everyone.
Lee became a member of the Methodist church in Wolbach in 1914. He leaves to mourn his loss, his father and mother, one sister, Vera and one brother Ralph; also many other relatives and a host of friends.
"Soldier of God, well done! Thy glorious warfare's past; The battle's fought, the race is run and thou art crowned at last."
