Edith Belle (LeRoy) Garvin


Loyal and vicinity were grievously shocked Friday morning when the news spread that Mrs. Garvin died at 7 a.m. at the Neillsville hospital after an illness of only a few days.


Edith Belle LeRoy was born at Springfield, New York, April 16, 1878 and when a child moved with her parents to Loyal. Here she attended the public school, grew to womanhood and was married to Fred Garvin Nov. 14, 1894. Departing his life just two days after their twenty-third anniversary.


"Edith," as she was most widely known, was loved and respected by all who knew her. She was of an affectionate disposition and was especially attracted to elderly people and children. She found something to love in everybody, which naturally warmed all hearts toward her.


The funeral was held at the Woodsmen Hall Monday p.m. Nov. 20th .  Rev. Strevey of the M.E. church delivered an impressive talk followed by the Eastern Star services of which order Mrs. Garvin was an honored member.


The choir sand selections which were favorite hymns of the deceased.


There were many beautiful floral offerings which proves the loved esteem held for her.


She was laid to rest in the Loyal cemetery, " God’s acre of the dead." until the coming of the resurrection morn.


She leaves to mourn her loss a husband, son and an aged father, besides relatives and friends many of whom came from other localities to attend the funeral.
