Accidents Occasion Sorrow to Entire Community – Dumont Plans for Memorial Day
Funeral services for Wilford Schuler, 23, who was fatally wounded while working in the field at the Henry Roll farm Friday afternoon, were held at the Evangelical church Monday, Rev. Earl Jarboe, pastor of the church of the Brethren officiating. He was assisted by Rev. H. M. Raecker. The body was found by Donald Boyenga when he went to take a lunch to Mr. Schuler about 3:30. The gun apparently was discharged when he got off the disc to shoot gophers. The charge struck his heart. The coroner ruled death accidental. Wilford Carston Schuler was born August 24, 1913, at Bellingsham, Washington. After the death of his mother he came to Iowa with his father and brothers. His father died six years later.
