In Memory Of Orla S. Dinnes
Orla S. Dinnes, 67 years of age, passed away at his home Tuesday, Dec. 16, at 7:45 p.m., after a continuing illness that confined him to his bed during the last few weeks.
He was born in Melrose township on March 15, 1885. He was the son of John C. and Mary A. Dinnes and he made his home in this community during his entire life. Mr. Dinnes made his confession of Christ and was baptized in 1912 and became a member of the Ivester Church of the Brethren. He attended Mt. Morris College and graduated in 1910. He then attended Drake and graduated from there in 1913.
On August 16, 1921, he was married to Reta Tilton of Des Moines. To this union two sons were born, John and Fred. Surviving besides his wife and two sons are a brother Ralph, a sister May, and three granddaughters, all of whom reside in this community.
His parents preceded him in death, also a sister, Emma, in 1919.
He was a good neighbor, friend, father and husband. He bore his suffering with patience and without complaining. Many folks will miss him taking his place in the community.
Funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Charles Albin were held at the Ivester church Friday. In spite of the severe weather a large group came to pay their respects. Burial was at the Sheller cemetery.
Soloists were Galen Albright, singing "Just a Closer Walk," and Jerry Stambrough, who sang "The Old Rugged Cross." Mrs. Kenneth Cakerice was pianist.
Pall bearers were Marion Long, John Koch, James McKenzie, Fred Draper, Irvin Cakerice Jr. and D. L. Butler. Honorary pall bearers were Charles Stambrough, Vernon Steffen, Harry Cakerice, A. J. Kline, Leslie George and Glen Kurtz.
Flower ladies were Mrs. Irvin Cakerice, Mrs. Jay Miller and Mrs. Martin Schwarck. The Ivester W. O. sent food to the home for the noon meal.
