Dunn, Riley (28 NOV 1877 - 1 FEB 1946)


Riley Dunn, lifelong resident of Garden Valley, was found unconscious in his home late last Friday afternoon, by Ed Tande, who was returning home from this village (Humbird, Clark Co., Wis.) with a load of ground feed.  Mr. Tande noticed that there was no smoke coming from the chimney of Mr. Dunn’s house.  He stopped to investigate, and found Mr. Dunn lying partly on the bed and his feet, hands and face frozen.  It is presumed that he had suffered a stroke possibly two days before.  He was taken to the Krohn Hospital, where he died a few hours later.


Funeral services were held at the Leverett School House Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. E.J. Sachtjen, and burial was in the family lot in Curtis Cemetery.


Riland Dunn was born on the farm in Garden Valley, where he made his home all of his life, on Nov. 28, 1877, a son of John and Rebekah Dunn.  His parents, three sisters and one brother preceded him to death.  He was unmarried, and in these later years neighbors assisted in caring for his wants, which were but few.  He kept some sheep on the farm, and also a few goats, but had rented out the work land for a number of years.


He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Lucia A. Angell of Decker, Minn., and one brother, Roy, also of Decker.  The latter came to attend the burial services.
