Meek, Hiram W. – Obituary

Leap, Wallowa County, Oregon

Hiram W. Meek, a resident of the Leap section since 1891, died at the Wallowa hospital last Friday, July 18, 1924. He had been ill for a few months but his condition did not become serious until a week before he passed away. Bladder trouble was the cause of death.

The funeral was held at the Wallowa Methodist Church, with two pastors assisting, Rev. G. H. Feese and Rev. W. F. Shields. Burial was in the Wallowa Cemetery. The Grange had charge of the services, this being the first funeral conducted by that society in the county.

Mr. Meek was born in Defiance county, Ohio, March 23, 1867, and moved to Kansas and later to Colorado when a young man. He came on west a few years later and located on a farm six miles east of Wallowa, in Leap, which was his home to the last. He was married March 4, 1892, to Susan Roberts. His widow survives. She has been ill for some weeks and is still at the Wallowa hospital, but has been improving of late and is on the road to recovery. Two sons also survive, Grover C. and Samuel Meek, who live on the home place, and a stepson Everett Roberts of Enterprise.
