The funeral of Daniel David Shank and his wife, Abbie Catherine (Layman) Shank, was held at the Zion Church near Broadway, Va., on Sunday, April 25, conducted by S. H. Rhodes, Joseph Geil, and Henry Keener. Bro. and Sister Shank both died of pneumonia following influenza on the same day, Feb. 17, 1920. Their six children and other near relatives were down with influenza at the time of their death, therefore the funeral service was postponed. Bro. Shank was born July 27, 1886; Sister Shank, Mar. 18, 1886. On Nov. 4, 1908 they were married. They lived very happily together, and worked faithfully and harmoniously in the home, in the community, and in the Church. Their work on earth is ended but their influence will continue to live. Our hearts go out in sympathy to the little orphaned children, but we rejoice in their heritage of noble Christian parentage and early Christian training, and pray that they may grow up to be an honor to their parents and obedient children of God. (from the Gospel Herald, May 27, 1920)
