Frank Edward Will has been called from earth to heaven. He died Monday, April 29th and was buried Wednesday, May 1st; aged 19 years, 8 months and 3 days, his grave making the ninth in the family lot in Fairview Cemetery. It is not often that a wife and mother is called upon to mourn, as is Mrs. Will, for a husband and eight children. Frank had been in poor health with lung difficulty for some time. About four weeks before his death he was taken with la grippe, which greatly hastened his end. The day of his death he ate breakfast and dinner at the table with the family and expired at 2:30 o'clock p.m.
At the close of the revival meetings in the Methodist church last winter, he united with the church, and received the sacrament of baptism at the hands of his pastor on the day preceding his death. At the time of his death he expressed his love for Jesus and his expectation to be with him in a better world.
The funeral service took place at the home. The casket was covered and surrounded with floral offerings from many friends. Conspicuous among these tokens of love was that from the Epworth League, of which Frank was a member. A mother and sister are left in the home to mourn his loss, besides a brother in a distant part of the state.
