William F. Hutchinson, prominent citizen and stockman of this community died at Hot Lake sanatorium at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, May 20th. While he had been ill for some time, his many friends were shocked when they heard of his death, as it was hoped he was improving up until several hours before the end came. Pulminary edema was given as the cause of death.
The funeral was held from the Methodist church Saturday afternoon with Miss Blokland conducting the services, and interment was in the City cemetery. The funeral was one of the largest ever held here, a large concourse of friends gathering at the church and accompanying the remains to the last resting place. The flora tributes were many and beautiful.
