Rev. Cakerice Passes Away
The Ivester community was saddened Tuesday when it was announced that Rev. Cakerice, for many years pastor of the Ivester church, had passed away early that morning.
Rev. Cakerice had been making his home with a son of late years and only a week ago was helping in the field work on the son's farm near Ivester when he was suddenly stricken with paralysis and a second stroke the first of this week proved fatal.
Rev. Cakerice was a man universally loved by all his acquaintances and his sudden removal from the activities of life will be keenly felt in the neighborhood where he has resided for many years.

Rev. John Cakerice Buried
Rev. John Cakerice, of the Ivester neighborhood, was buried last Thursday. He died Tuesday afternoon following a stroke of paralysis which came upon him the week before. Mr. Cakerice was overcome while operating the road grader one day, the stroke taking effect on one entire side of his body. In a few days afterward death came to end his afflictions. Rev. Keller gave the sermon at the funeral and took as his subject, "Thou shalt be a good minister." The deceased was laid to rest in the Sheller cemetery one mile north of the church.
