The following clipping from the Long Beach paper was sent us by Mrs. Flora E. Boggs, a former resident of Nelson. Mr. Davis will be remembered by some of our older readers. He served as agent for the Burlington railroad when it built into Nelson in 1886.

Private service for Mr. Shirley E. Davis, 81, of 3215 East Broadway, who died Saturday in a San Gabriel sanitarium, will be Tuesday at 1 p.m. in the chapel of Sunnyside Mausoleum with Rev. Frank D. Lawyer officiating. Interment will be at Sunnyside Memorial Park Cemetery. The B.W. Coon Funeral Home will be in charge of local arrangements.

Mr. Davis was born in Edgington, Ill., whence he came to Fillmore in 1919. He moved from Fillmore to Long Beach in 1928. He was a member of the Calvary Presbyterian Church.

Surviving is the widow, Eva N. Davis, Long Beach; two sons, Harold S. Davis, Long Beach, and Frank C. Davis, Huntington Park; two daughters, Maybelle E. Davis of Santa Barbara, and Mrs. Robert Coleson of Los Angeles, and three grandchildren.
