John Ivey Succumbed to Attack of Heart Trouble -

In the death of John Ivey which took place at the Holy Cross Hospital at Salt Lake on Wednesday of this week, Eureka has lost one of her most highly respected citizens and the members of his family are bowed down in great sorrow. Death resulted from heart trouble, Mr. Ivey being ill but a few weeks.
It was 31 years ago that John Ivey moved his family to Eureka from Nevada and this has been their home ever since that time. Mr. Ivey followed mining up until he met with a very serious accident in the Bullion Beck mine and after that took up other lines of work, being fireman and janitor at the public school buildings for nearly a score of years. He also served as a city councilman and held various offices in the Masons Odd Fellows and Macabee lodges, being greatly interested in fraternal matters and being held in the highest regard by his fellow members.
John Ivey was born in Cornwall England 62 years ago. He was a child of 5 years when his parents came to America. The father was a mining engineer and naturally took up his residence in Nevada which at that time was attracting the best mining talent of the country. It was in Eureka and Austin, Nevada that John Ivey grew to manhood. His parents died when he was young and aside from his wife and children his only near relative is a sister whose home is on the Pacific coast. Deceased is survived by his widow and five children. Mrs. John Gatley, Myrtle, Ruth Allen and Charles Ivey.
John Ivey was honorable and high minded, big hearted and optimistic. Throughout his early life he fought an uphill battle being deprived of his parents, having children taken away by disease and sustaining an injury which kept him near death for many weeks, but he was cheerful in his misfortunes. He could always be counted on to render faithful service and he will be missed for his many kindly acts and manly qualifications.
Funeral services are to be conducted at 2 p.m. on Sunday under the direction of the Masonic lodge.
