Published in the Jamestown Evening Journal, Monday, May 15, 1939.

Edwin D. Varmee, 50, a well known resident of Falconer, died suddenly at the family home, 20 Prosser street, about 4 o’clock Sunday morning. He was stricken ill about 3 o’clock and a physician was called but death occurred before the arrival of medical aid. Death was due to coronary occlusion, a heart ailment.

Besides his wife, Mrs. Florence Nelson Varmee, he is survived by one son Laverne Varmee; a daughter Frances Varmee, both at home; his mother, Mrs. Augusta Varmee, of this city; two brothers, Elmer Varmee, Pittsburgh, and Ernest Varmee, Jamestown, and two sisters, Mrs. Clara Swanson, Kingston, and Mrs. Florence Lattin, of this city.

Mr. Varmee was a charter member of the Falconer Rod and Gun club, organized in 1922, and had since been a member of the board of directors and had served as treasurer of the club during practically all of that time. With the late Chrles Proudman he is credited with liberation of the first ring-neck pheasants in this vicinity.

Mr. Varmee was presented with a silver medal last February in recognition of his efforts in the cause of conservation.

He had been an active member of Falconer Hose company No. 1 for a number of years and had served as street superintendent at Falconer since last July, previously being employed by the Jamestown Unit Parts company, Inc. He also has operated a garage in Falconer for many years before that.

Mr. Varmee came to Falconer 29 years ago from McKeesport, Pa., where he was born.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Falconer Methodist church. The remains may be viewed at the Falconer funeral home.
