TWO-YEAR-OLD BOY ACCIDENTALLY DROWNED NEAR PARKS SATURDAY

This community was saddened by the accidental drowning of little John Chester Ward, two-year-old son of Doris Browning Ward, Saturday afternoon (May 22, 1963) near Parks. John wandered away from the farm home and an extensive search discovered the body in the pond near the home. He had been missing just a short time. The accident took place on the place known locally as the Peck ranch. Mr. Chet Browning, grandfather of John, is living on the ranch, and Doris and John were living there with him.
A lively, friendly two-year old, John will be sadly missed by his many relatives, neighbors and friends in the community. He celebrated his second birthday on April 20.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon, May 28, at The First Christian Church in St. Francis with the Rev. Jim Ewing officiating. Interment was in the St. Francis Cemetery.
The Herald joins the entire community in extending sympathy to the bereaved family.
