THE WESTERN STAR, 19 April 1907
Obituary of WALTER LAFAYETTE VANWEY
Walter Lafayette VanWey, son of Mr. and Mrs. Abram VanWey, died at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, 1907, after a five weeks' lingering illness of scarlet fever. His age was 11 years, 10 months and 9 days. He did not
suffer intense pain, but throughout his sickness was very patient. Lovingly was he cared for in his home and kind hands gently laid him to rest. Being the only son of his fond parents, it seems heart breaking to live without him, as he was loving, gentle, industrious and a great joy in his home. But his death is a notable victory. The body yielded to the powers of disease, but the spirit triumphed through faith in Christ and went home with the angels to live with God. He leaves devoted parents
and two sisters, Minnie and Wilma, and other relatives and many friends to mourn his loss. Rev. I. W. Bailey conducted the funeral services at 3 p.m. on Wednesday at the home. Interment was made in the Protection
cemetery.

DIED.

Walter, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Abe VanWey of Protection tp. died on Tuesday after an illness of about two weeks. The immediate cause of his death was thought to be scarlet fever. Funeral services were
conducted on Wednesday afternoon and were in charge of Rev. I. W. Bailey of the Baptist church. Interment was made in the Protection cemetery. Walter was a bright, industrious and obedient boy. He was the only son, and the only living child, two sisters having preceded him in death. Many were the hearts that were saddened by the news of his death, and to the parents whose sore affliction seems now almost unbearable the
profound sympathy of all is extended.
