BURTON TRIMBLE

LAST WEEK THUESDAY, BURTON TRIMBLE WAS TAKEN ILL WITH THE INFLUENZA WHICH RAPIDLY DEVELOPED INTO PNEUMONIA, AND IN SPITE OF ALL THAT MEDICAL SKILL AND GOOD NURSING COULD DO, HE PASSED AWAY MONDAY AFTERNOON. THE FUNERAL SERVICES WERE HELD WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AT 2 O’CLOCK AT THE BAPTIST CHURCH CONDUCTED BY HIS PASTOR, REV. CHARLES G. WRIGHT. THE MUSIC WAS RENDERED BY A QUARTET CONSISTING OF MISS ETHEL HICKERSON, MISS LUCILE WRIGHT, ALEX MOFFATT AND PERRY STEPHENSON, ACCOMPANIED BY MISS BESSIE STUCK. BURIAL WAS IN ROSE HILL CEMETERY.

THE DECEASED IS SURVIVED BY HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, MR. AND MRS. FRANK E. TRIMBLE AND BY FOUR BROTHERS- CHARLES R, HARRY G., CLYDE AND FRED AND BY TWO SISTERS, MRS. REECE ELLIOTT AND RUTH, ALL OF MOUNT AYR VICINITY.

BURTON WILLIAM TRIMBLE WAS BORN AUGUST 25, 1900, ON A FARM WEST OF TOWN WHERE HIS LIFE HAS BEEN SPENT.  BY HIS GENIAL SPIRIT HE WON A LARGE CIRCLE OF FRIENDS WHO SYMPATHIZE DEEPLY WITH THE BEREAVED FAMILY.  IN BOYHOOD HE WAS CONVERTED AND UNITED WITH THE MOUNT AYR BAPTIST CHURCH, WHERE HE HAS CONTINUED TO OCCUPY A USEFUL PLACE.  HE WAS AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLES UNION AND OF THE YOUNG MEN’S BARACA CLASS WHERE HE WILL BE SORELY MISSED. JUST ENTERING YOUNG MANHOOD WITH SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR, HIS PASSING SEEMS UNTIMELY. BUT HIS EARNEST CHRISTIAN LIFE HAS BEEN AN INSPIRATION TO MANY AND HE WROUGHT NOBLY AND WELL WHILE HE LIVED.
