Obituary (Source unknown)

John L. Case, 85, the son of a Sunnyside pioneer family, died Tuesday, March 26 at a Yakima hospital.

Born in Bloomfield, Mo., Case came to the Outlook area in 1895 in a covered wagon. In 1909 the family moved from Outlook to Sunnyside, where Case's father, A.Z. Case ran a harness shop at the site where the old Sunnyside Liberty Theater stood.

After helping his father in the harness shop for a time, Case obtained a job with the Yakima County Highway Dept. in 1911. He continued to work for the highway department until his retirement in 1953, at which time he was given an award from the highway department for close to a half century of continuous service. After his retirement he continued to make his home in Sunnyside until the time of his death.

Survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Louise Kull of Grandview and two sons Albert Case and Robert Case, both of Bothell. He is also survived by six grandchildren and four great grandchildren and his close friend and companion, Mrs. Erma Stump of Sunnyside.

Funeral services were held Saturday, March 30 at the chapel of the Smith Funeral Home in Sunnyside. The selections "In the Garden" and "The Old Rugged Cross" were sung by Greg Smith, accompanied by organist Mrs. Louise Roehl.

Pallbearers were Wayne Case, Larry and Fred Kull, Gary Clark, Don Pitzer and Gary Case. Honorary pallbearers were Bob Thompson, Floyd Thompson, Perry Thompson, Earl Burr, George Seebeck, Don Myers, Erran Kneffer and Bill Culver.

Burial was in the Lower Valley Memorial Gardens under the direction of the Smith Funeral Home.
