Doyle Everett Roach, son of Mr. and Mrs. Levi Roach was born May 31, 1901, at Hatfield, MO., and died of tuberculosis at their home in west Mount Ayr, November 4, 1918, aged seventeen years, seven months and four days.
Recently the family returned from Colorado and Nebraska, where they had been in the hope that the change of climate would be beneficial to Doyle’s health, but the young man did not have the strength to overcome the disease.
The father and mother and several brothers and sisters mourn the loss of the loved one.
The funeral service was conducted at the home by Rev. Frank Bean of the M.E. Church Tuesday, November 5, at 2:30 p.m. and the body was laid to rest in Rose Hill Cemetery.
