Lone Tree Reporter, Thursday, February 6, 1919

George N. Burr, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Burr, passed away at his home in Lincoln township, Wednesday, January 29, 1919, after an illness of several months. He was one of the prominent young farmers of his community and his untimely death is deeply mourned by a large circle of friends.

The deceased was born on February 7, 1888, and was aged 30 years, 11 months and 22 days. In 1906 he became a member of the Reformed church by confirmation, and lived his life faithful in the privileges of the christian.

On December 10, 1913, he was united in marriage to Miss Mabel Vogue, to which union, one child, a daughter was born. He was a model husband, exhibiting at all times the virtues which made for the best Christian manhood. An accident, slight in its outward effects, was said to be the direct beginning of his fatal illness.

To be loved and admired by all who know us is no common heritage, yet this was the case with Mr. Burr. His faith in the serving of Jesus Christ as his Savior and redeemer, was his supreme reliance.

He leaves to mourn his departure, his wife and one daughter, Letha, also his parents, three sisters and two brothers.

His funeral was held from the Reformed church, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock conducted by Rev. E. D. Lantz. Burial in the Lone Tree cemetery.
