Lee Humphrey Passed Away
William Lee Humphrey died last night at the Grande Ronde hospital, where he has been the past few weeks. The deceased was 65 years of age. On account of a severe accident a few years ago, Mr. Humphrey has been an invalid the most of the time and his trouble was further intensified over the loss of his wife, Mrs. Alabama Humphrey years ago. There were no children.
He was a nephew of the late John A. Childers and Mrs. Chas. Golden is a cousin. He had many friends among whom he will be greatly missed
The funeral will be held at the Odd Fellows hall at Island City, at 2:00 o’clock tomorrow afternoon. Ensign Ollie [Olive] Childers will preach the funeral sermon.
