Webb, Dell – Obituary

The following was in type and ready for insertion in The Republican of last week but was unintentionally omitted, and is presented at this time by way of correcting the oversight as far as possible:

Mrs. Rosa Badger received a hurry call to come to La Grande Wednesday saying her father, Dell Webb, had been seriously hurt. Mr. Webb and his son Vern and his son-in-law James Burke were in the, mountains out of La Grande getting wood. A tree fell on Mr. Webb. He was taken home as quickly as possible and only lived a short time, dying before Mrs. Badger reached his bedside.

Mr. Webb was 78 years old and lived in Union many years. He leaves a wife and eight children. He will be buried in La Grande Sunday.
