Obituary

DEATH OF MR. QUIMBY--

Ira Quimby, who has been ill for a long time, and for the past year been suffering a great deal, died Tuesday evening, Jan. 16. His wife and children have cared for him in his illness, and now mourn the loss of a devoted husband and father.

The children who survive him are, Mrs. Arthur Davis, Miss Luna Quimby, Ransell, and Ernest Quimby, all living at home. Funeral services were held at his late residence Thursday afternoon, Rev. I. P. Quimby of St. Johnsbury officiating, assisted by the Universalist Choir here.

He was a Mason, and members from Moose River Lodge attended the funeral. The interment was at Grove Cemetery, St. Johnsbury.

The family have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
