ALBERT AVERY IS DEAD AT 67
Death of St. Paul Man Comes as Shock to His Friends; Rites Saturday
Albert Avery, 67-year-old lifelong resident of St. Paul, died suddenly Wednesday at 3:20 p.m. at his home. Although Mr. Avery had been in failing health for some time, his death, which was caused by a heart ailment, came as a shock to his family and friends.
The deceased was born in St. Paul on April 12, 1873, the son of Daniel W. and Malissa (Pence) Avery. On July 14, 1901, he was united in marriage to Mary Maud Leffler, who preceded him in death on July 14, 1934. Mrs. Avery died on the couple's thirty-third wedding anniversary. To this union a daughter, Mrs. Serena Farrell, and a son, Herman W. Avery, both of whom reside at St. Paul were born.
Mr. Avery spent his entire life in St. Paul, and was for many years an engineer in the St. Paul stone quarries. He was a member of the St. Paul Christian church.
Besides the daughter and son, Mr. Avery is survived by two grandchildren and four brothers. The brothers are Edker B. and Clifford Avery, of St. Paul; Isaac Avery, of Anderson, and John F. Avery, of Tottenville, Staten Island, New York. He was a brother of the late Herman W. Avery, of Shelbyville.
Funeral services will be conducted Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the St. Paul Christian church with the pastor, Rev. Eric Martin, officiating. Burial, in charge of D. E. Carmony, funeral director, will be made in Paul Hill cemetery.
