Elmer A. Wilcox, 1932
PASSING OF A GOOD MAN
Elmer A. Wilcox passed away early Saturday morning at his home, following an illness of about two years. During his many weary days of suffering Elmer was always cheerful, and took things as they came, never complaining. He lived his life in Hamburg, and was always found four square in all his dealings and was held in the highest respect by all. Although of a quiet disposition, his influence was a force in the community, and will live on as a benediction to him.
Elmer A. Wilcox, son of Eli and Maria Wilcox, was born near Hamburg, July 17, 1865 and died at his home here on March 26, 1932, aged 66 year, 7 months and 29days. The larger part of his life was spent in Hamburg, where he worked as a clerk in hardware, lumber, jewelry and grocery businesses. In October of 1929 the condition of his health was such that he had to retire from active work, and since that tome has been closely confined to his home. During the years of his suffering he always showed a patient Christian fortitude.
He united with the M. E. church at this place twenty-five years ago and was a member of the official board at the time of his death, and his church has suffered a distinct loss. He was an honored member of the I. O. O. F., the Encampment, Rebekah, and Modern Woodman lodges.
Elmer Wilcox is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Fisher, of Burwell, Nebr., and Mrs. Emma Ralla Ryerson, of Detroit, Mich., and by a niece, Mrs. Mabel Smith, of Burwell, and a nephew, La Verne Ryerson, of Detroit. Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon from the M. E. church, in charge of his pastor, the Rev. John Zuck. Interment was in the Hamburg cemetery, services at the grave being in charge of the Rebekah and Odd Fellow lodges.
