Prominent Winterset Citizen Succumbs After Long Illness

Dr. L. L. Wade, well known Winterset osteopath, died at his home here last Friday, May 3 after an extended illness. Dr. Wade, who was 53 years of age, had been in poor health since he suffered a stroke five years ago, but his condition did not become serious until several weeks ago.

Larue L. Wade, son of Jacob Luther and Mina Marquis Wade, was born at Fremont, Ind., May 2, 1887. His early life was spent at Bluffton, Ind. He came to Winterset at the age of seventeen, and completed his high school work. He took college work at Parkville, Mo., and was graduated from the Kirksville College of Osteopathy, Kirksville, Mo., with the class of 1918. He took post graduate work at the Des Moines Still college in 1919, and lived at that time in Altoona. He practiced his profession five years in Casper, Wyoming, coming to Winterset in 1924, where he lived until the time of his death.

He was married to Miss Wilma McLees, December 19, 1913, and they were the parents of four children, two of whom, Donald and Irene, died in infancy. He is survived by his wife, his two sons, Rex of Winterset, and Frank and his wife, Betty, of Ames and one granddaughter, Sharon Jean of Ames, and a nephew, Harold L. Shankle.

Dr. Wade became a member of the Presbyterian church at an early age. Upon coming to Winterset he became a member of the United Presbyterian church. He was affiliated with the Atlas club, a professional fraternity, and was secretary-treasurer of the sixth district of the Iowa Society of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons, for six years.

Funeral services for Dr. Wade were conducted at the Anderson home for funerals Sunday, May 5 at 2:30 o'clock, by the Rev. C. E. Courtney, pastor of the local United Presbyterian church, and Dr. A. M. Simpson of the Norwalk Christian church.
