The sudden death of Mr. Warren Bailey came as a surprise to this community. But a few days ago he was in the city trading in as good health as any. A little later he was stricken down in the midst of his years. Everything possible was done but it was of no avail. Appendicitis was the cause of his death.
Warren Bailey, the third son of Mr. and Mrs. Orwell Bailey living just north of Holland, was born in Baileyville, Ill., May 1, 1861, and died at his home in Clay township, nine miles southwest of Grundy Center, on Friday, the last day of the old year--age 36 years, 8 months. The Bailey family came to Grundy Center in 1875. In 1885 he was married to Miss Emma Longnecker, who with three daughters, remain to mourn the loss of a husband and father. There are four brothers all well known in this community--Charles, Frank, George and Eugene. The aged parents, who for the first time have suffered bereavement in their own family, and the wife and children have the sympathy of their host of friends as witnessed by the large concourse of friends present at the funeral services. Rev. W. H. Jordan, pastor of the Presbyterian church of Grundy Center, spoke briefly on Isaiah 38:1 "Set thine house in order for thou shalt die and not live." The services were held at the home of the deceased at ten o'clock Monday and the burial took place in Rosehill cemetery. Mr. Bailey grew to manhood in our midst and was known as a loving husband and father, a good neighbor and a straightforward man in his dealings.
