GEORGE GARDNER PASSES AWAY
George Gardner was born May 2, 1861 at Rodden, Canada, and came to Wisconsin in 1879, locating at Seymour. He was united in marriage to Miss Linda Johnson of the Town of York in 1886 and they lived for a year and a half in Marshfield, before settling on a farm in the Town of York, Clark County, where they resided for eighteen years. After selling the farm they lived a short time in Loyal while preparing a home on an 80 acre farm two miles west of Loyal, now owned by Bert Brown.
In 1921 they moved to Greenwood and have since made it their home, except during the winters, which were spent with the daughter, Mrs. Fred Heiking of Loyal. Mr. Gardner held the office of supervisor of the Town of York and also served fourteen years as clerk of the school district.
Mr. Gardner passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fred Heiking at Loyal at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. He has been confined to his bed for the past three months, following a paralytic stroke.
He is survived by his wife, one daughter, Mrs. Fred Heiking of the Town of Eaton, one son, Floyd, of the Town of Beaver, one brother, Peter, and two sister, Mrs. Melvin Lawrence of Owen and Anna of Oregon. One child died in infancy.
Funeral services were held yesterday at 2:00 p.m. from the Methodist Church at Loyal, Rev. A. N. Chapman officiating. The body was laid to rest in the Loyal Cemetery.
