Funeral services for the Rev. J. R. Skinner, ninety-two tears if age, were held here Sunday afternoon. His death occurred on July 5, in a hospital in Jacksonville, Fla., to which he was taken the day before from his home at Penney Farms. He had been in failing health for a long time, but was seriously ill only a few hours. The remains were accompanied north by the wife and son Elgie, and were taken to the Fry & Lange funeral home on arrival. Services were conducted by the Rev. J. J. Meyer, and burial was in Southlawn addition in the Winamac cemetery.
The Rev. Mr. Skinner came to this county from Ohio in 1873 shortly after his graduation from Heidelberg, to accept his first charge in the ministry as pastor of the German Reform churches at Pulaski, Winamac and Lake Bruce. Three years later he was married to Miss Mary Good, and they trod the path of life together for more than sixty-three years.
A short time after their marriage they located in Ohio, and subsequently in Michigan. Kansas and Illinois. While in Kansas, Mr. Skinner transferred his affiliations to the Presbyterian church. He served in the ministry for just fifty years, including a chaplain ship in the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American war. Following his retirement they returned to Winamac, remodeling a home here, but of recent years have spent most of their time in Florida.
Surviving, besides the widow, are two sons, Elgie Skinner of Oak Park, Ill., and Dee Skinner of Newark, Ohio. Both the sons were here for the funeral. Elgie having flown to Florida on receipt of word of the father's illness.
