Grim Messenger Claims Phil Stine
Died At Home On North Ninth Street Early Tuesday Morning
Death Came Unexpectedly
Was Not In Best of Health But Had Been Working All Day Monday

Mr. Phil Stine died very suddenly about three o’clock Tuesday morning at his home on North Ninth street of kidney trouble and complications, the immediate cause of his death being heart failure.

Mr. Stine had been in ill health for two years or more and although he had been failing his death was unexpected and a shock to the community. For several weeks he had been unable to do hard manual labor and recently had charge of the pop corn stand of Earl Roe and was so employed all of Monday. He was feeling as well as usual when he retired but about three o’clock he was attacked with heart trouble and before medical assistance arrived he had passed to the “great beyond.”

Funeral is to be held Thursday afternoon from the Christian church.

Mr. Stine was born in Maryland July 2, 1870, and hence at the time of his death was a little past 46 years of age. In 1894 he was united in marriage to Miss Carrie Kirkpatrick at Oelwein. To this union two children were born, Lyle and Coral.

Two years after marriage in 1896 he moved to Estherville where he has since resided. For eighteen years he was in the employ of the Root-Wilcox Lumber Co. He was always faithful to the trust bestowed in him, was a kind and devoted husband and father and a good citizen.

Besides his wife and two children he is survived by one sister and four brothers. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, October 11, 1916)
