Marcus News Marcus; Cherokee Co., IA Thur 26 Feb 1920
Called Home
Leon Orren Wells, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Wells, was born near Marcus on Dec. 14, 1917, and departed this life on the afternoon of Feb. 17, 1920, aged 2 years, 2 months and 3 days.
His illness was serious from the first as complications of whooping cough and bronchial pneumonia, from which he suffered, were difficult to combat. All that medical skill and loving care could do was done for him, but to no avail, and at 2:40 o'clock Tuesday afternoon he passed peacefully over into the "Morning Land".
Funeral services were held in the Methodist church, conducted by Rev. G.R. Gilbert assisted by Rev. G.W. Eggleston. A choir composed of Mrs. W.H. Meyer, Miss Sadie Barr, Mr. J.O. Barnes and L.M. Miller beautifully sang "God Will Take Care of You", "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere", and "Safe in the Arms of Jesus". Mr. Gilbert preached a comforting sermon from the text, "He shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom". The body was laid to rest in Marcus-Amherst cemetery. He leaves to mourn his loss a devoted father and mother, one sister, two brothers and many other relatives.
