Hinton Progress
March 12, 1931


This community was shocked Monday morning to hear the news of the sudden death of Charles Church. Mr. Church had apparently been in good health until Monday when he was stricken with an attack of heart trouble in his home.

The deceased was born in Montreal, Canada, and was 59 years of age. He came to Hinton when he was 15 years old and returned to Canada in 1910, and again came to Hinton in 1929.

Besides his widow, Mr. Church is survived by eight children: Mrs. Clarence Peterson, of Tuckerton, N.J.; Mrs. George Richards, and Hart, John, Arthur, Archie, Clarence, and Eva Church, all of Hinton; and a brother, Frank Church, of Redmond, Wash.

Funeral services will be held at the Methodist church in Hinton today, (Thursday) at 2:00 p.m.
