Death: Jul. 29, 1945

Egli. - Lawrence Theodore, son of C. B. and Emma Grimm Egli, was born at Hopedale, Ill., Dec. 22, 1908; departed this life July 29, 1945, at the Glockner Hospital, Colorado Springs, Colo., after an illness of several months; aged 36 y. 7 m. 7 d. On Aug. 1, 1937, he was united in marriage to Lola Schertz, who survives. He also leaves his father and stepmother, 6 brothers (Joe, Conneautville, Pa.; Lou, Gilmore City, Iowa; Emery and Sam, Rockwell City, Iowa; Jesse, Manson, Iowa; and Stanley, of Hawaii), 3 sisters (Mrs. Maude Swartzendruber, La Junta, Colo.; Mrs. Chancy Litwiller, Hopedale, Ill.; and Ida, of La Junta), 17 nephews, and 6 nieces. His mother and 2 brothers (Ammon and John) preceded him in death. The family moved to Manson, Iowa, in 1911, where he grew to manhood. In early youth he united with the Mennonite Church at Manson in which he retained his membership until a year ago when he and his wife united with the Mennonite Church at Denver, Colo., where they had made their home since the spring of 1944. While health permitted he was active as a Sunday-school superintendent for several years and was serving in that capacity when he was forced to move to Colorado five years ago because of ill health. Funeral services were held at the Manson Mennonite Church, Aug. 1, in charge of Allen H. Erb, assisted by Nicholas Stoltzfus. Interment was made in the Rose Hill Cemetery
