Table Rock Argus, Apr. 10, 1947. (pg.3)


Edmond Dallas Taylor, son of John and Nancy Kerns Taylor, was born near Table Rock on October 21, 1874 and passed away April 1, 1947, at the age of 72 years, 5 months and 10 days.

He lived his entire life in the Table Rock vicinity. He attended grade school and high school in Table Rock and later attended the Pawnee City academy for two years.

On October 5, 1898, he was united in marriage to Avis Dopp and they are the parents of two children, a son, Lester Kenneth Taylor of Humboldt, and a daughter, Alice Marie Covault of Table Rock.

Mr. Taylor was a member of the Presbyterian Church and was serving on the official board at the time the church disbanded.

He had been in failing health the past nine years, having suffered a paralytic stroke at that time and was never well and all that medical skill could do for him he gradually grew worse and on March 19 was taken to the hospital where he quietly passed away, Tuesday afternoon at 4:30.

Mr. Taylor had been a farmer and stock man all his life. The family moved to the farm just south of town March 4, 1901 and it continued to be his home at the time of his death.

Besides his wife and two children, there remain seven grandchildren and one great grandson, one sister, Mrs. Hattie Pangburn of Republican City and a brother, F. T. Wyman of Rockford, Illinois.

Relatives and friends from out of town who were here for the E.D. Taylor funeral services last Friday afternoon were: Mr. and Mrs. Lester K. Taylor, Mary and George of Humboldt; Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Taylor and Paul, of Gibbon, Nebraska; F. R. Wyman, Rockford, Illinois; Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Crisler, Wymore; Roy Kerns, Adams; Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Phillips, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Anderson and Carol, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Clark, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Geyer and Wilbur Bourne, Humboldt; Mrs. Mary Wopata, Lincoln.

We Are So Blind

We are so blind about this thing called death!
We break our hearts, we sob with catching breath,
Mourning in impotent and selfish grief,
Unconsciously begrudging the relief
To our Beloved whom God's hand has set free
To climb the bright hill of Eternity.
We have forgotten that his yoke, long bourne,
Has slipped from tired shoulders, and we mourn
With heavy tear-filled eyes that grow to dim
To clearly see we should rejoice with him;
We should be glad to know, his great work is done,
He walks car-free beneath the heavenly sun;
We should be glad for his white peace, but oh,
We are so human, and we miss him so!
