Mr. And Mrs. E. O. Zerek returned Tuesday from Touchet , Washington, where they were called last Friday by the death of their brother-in-law, Morris White. Mr. White who retired Thursday night apparently as well as usual was found dead in bed Friday morning, no sign whatever of the slightest struggle; he always expected to pass away in this manner.
Mr. White was a merchant in Union 22 years ago, a conscientious honorable Christian man. His wife was brought here from Walla Walla five years ago, and died at Hot Lake. He is survived by his son William H. and his daughter Cora Johnson. Mr. White and his son were owners of a fine fruit ranch at Touchet which they had been living on for several years.
The funeral was held from the Congregational Church at Touchet, Monday, March 12. Interment in the Walla Walla cemetery by the side of his wife.
