THE WESTERN STAR, 6 February 1942
Obituary of WALTER EDWIN BOLES
Death of Walter Boles

Walter Edwin Boles, Wilmore R. F. D. mail carrier and resident of that city during the past 19 years, was stricken by a paralytic stroke at the Wilmore school house last Friday morning. He was taken to his home soon afterward and died at 5:30 p.m. last Sunday, February 1, 1942, without regaining consciousness. He had never been known to be seriously ill and death is a shock to the entire community. He had been coon hunting a night or two before being stricken and seemed to be in the best of health.

Funeral services were held in the Wilmore Methodist church at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday and burial was in Wilmore cemetery. He is survived by his wife and seven children. Mr. Boles was born in Pottersville, Mo., November 23, 1889, and passed away in Wilmore Sunday, February 1, 1942, at the age of 52 years, two months and eight days. Mr. Boles was one of Wilmore's most enthusiastic boosters and was liked by all who knew him. His untimely death elicits the sympathy of all.
