Young Man Dies At His Home In Woodland Twp.

The death of Lloyd Alvin Lindsey, son of Charley and Rebecca Lindsey, occurred at the parental home in Woodland township, Fulton county, Illinois, December 25, 1922. He was born October 11, 1894, being at the time of his death 28 years, 2 months, and 14 days old.

Lloyd was a young man of a good moral character and well respected by all who knew him. Another acquaintance was another friend added to his many friends. Lloyd was stricken with lung trouble about seven years ago and in spite of all that was known and could be done, he grew gradually weaker, but the end came rather unexpected. Through all of his afflictions he was at all times cheerful and pleasant, uncomplaining and sociable. Two beckoning hands are waiting on the other shore to greet him, — a little sister, Odessa Fern, who preceded him in infancy and Raymond E., a brother of 24 years, who preceded him about seven years ago, afflicted with the same foe.

Father and mother, one brother and two sisters and a host of friends remain to mourn the loss of a son, brother and friend. The third place is vacant which can never be filled, the voice we loved most excellent will be forever stilled.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. A. H. Lind, assisted by Rev. Chas. Walter at the Woodland church. Interment in the cemetery near by.
