THE WESTERN STAR, 26 February 1909
Obituary of JOHN W. SEVER
J. W. Sever, whose home was in this city, died at 2:20 p.m. on last Monday, February 22, after an illness of 10 days. On Saturday, February 13, he was taken sick with a severe case of lagrippe. On Thursday of last week erysipelas developed, and the complications proved more than his constitution could stand. Mr. Sever was patient and hopeful throughout his sickness. A few hours before his death he became unconscious, but there was every evidence that he was fully prepared to die.

The body was taken on Tuesday to Clinton, Mo., for burial, Mr. Sever's former home being near that city. The wife and six sons, Carl, Arch, John, Lloyd, Chester and Earl and Mrs. Carl Sever and Mrs. Arch Sever
accompanied the remains.

Deceased was born in Warren co., Indiana, on February 27, 1857. At the time of his death he lacked but 5 days of being 52 years old. He moved from Indiana to Henry co. Missouri, where he continued to live until March, 1905, when he moved to this county, purchased a tract of land one mile northeast of Coldwater. He was a desirable neighbor and a good
citizen in every sense of the word. He had the confidence and good will of all. As a husband and father he was devoted and true. Hence he will be missed in the home and in the community in which he lived.

About 35 years ago Mr. Sever was married to Miss Lida Broyles, who, with the six sons named above and three married daughters in Missouri, survive him. Since his youth, Mr. Sever had been a member of the
Christian church, and he exemplified in his daily life the character of the sincere Christian. To those whose hearts are heavy with this bereavement the sincere sympathy of all is extended.
