Gwin, Earl S. (3 JUL 1870 - 4 MAR 1932)

The death of Earl S. Gwin which occurred Friday about 4 P. M., March 4, 1932 at his home here, came as a great shock to relatives and neighbors and friends, although he had not been in the best of health for a few weeks previous, there seemed no cause of anything serious. Dr. McGonigal stated he was suffering from an attack of jaundice.

His sister, Mrs. Cannon, left the house for a call on a friend. He had insisted she make the call saying "he was alright"and sat reading the Digest. Apparently he had left his chair to go to the Davenport, a few steps away, but fell to the floor before reaching it, still holding the Digest and his reading glasses on, which were not broken, and he passed away without a struggle. He was found by his sister about 4:15 o’clock but he had answered his Maker’s call and gone to his reward. Dr. McGonigal was immediately called and stated he had suffered a stroke of apoplexy.

Earl Gwin was at Black River Falls, July 3, 1870, the eldest son of Peter and Edna Gwin. The family came to Loyal in 1874, where they always resided and Earl grew to manhood and with his sister occupied the old Homestead in the village. He was a man of sterling worth and integrity, just and upright, and respected by all. He was a good friend and neighbor and will be missed at his home and by friends.

He had followed the occupation of a painter and House Decorator, for years and his work was well done.

Funeral services were held from the home and M. E. Church Monday at 2 P. M. and burial was made in the family lot beside his Father, Mother and Brother Hugh who passed away two years ago. A brother Paul at Everett, Wash., and sister Mrs. Cora Cannon are left to mourn his departure. Rev. Grandy conducted the services.
