Homer Leroy Sharar
Homer Leroy Sharar, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Sharar of Dunnell, was born in Ellsworth township, Emmet county, June 10, 1901, and died Feb. 10, 1945, after a painful illness of more than a year’s duration.

On Sept. 13, 1922, he was united in marriage to Erma St. Clair of Lincoln, Neb., and settled on a farm near Dunnell. He pursued farming as his life work until seven years ago, when he took employment at the Tobin packing plant, where he was employed at the time of his illness.

Six children were born, five of whom are still living. They are Sergeant Elmer Sharar with the United States forces in Italy, Merle Lee, who works at the packing plant, and Ethel, Fred and Norman who are all students in the Estherville schools, living with their mother at 505 N. 10th St. Kenneth Eugene died in infancy.

Other survivors are his father and mother of Dunnell, Minn., two sisters, Martha Van Eman of Estherville, and Myrtle Reinhardt of Dolliver, and three brothers, Floyd and Leo of Dunnell, and Glen of Sherburn.

Homer joined the Methodist church in Estherville with his sister, Martha, in 1919, at the age of 18, and was regular in attendance at Sunday school and church and in the Epworth league. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, February 16, 1945)
