Heart Failure
    Takes Life Of
         Notus Farmer

     George W. Van Winkle, Notus farmer, died Wednesday evening in his sleep, a victim of heart failure.  Ban Winkle, of robust physique and apparently in good health, retired early.  While conversing in bed with Mrs. Van Winkle he suddenly stopped talking.  She reached over to arouse him and found that he had died.  Dr. C. M. Kaley, who was immediately summoned, attributed the man's death to a heart attack.
    The body is now at Peckham chapel awaiting funeral arrangements.
    Van Winkle was born at Garden Valley, 64 years ago.  He lived at Centerville until he reached manhood and then moved to Parma, where he married Miss Minerva Bothwell on September 14, 1899.  Mrs. Van Winkle died a number of years ago and in 1931 he married Mary L. De Priest.
    Surviving him besides Mrs. Van Winkle are three children by his first marriage, Loyd and Fred Van Winkle and Mrs. Golda McDowell, all of Canyon county; one brother, Lewis R. Van Winkle of Gaston, Ore.; three sisters, Mrs. Mary Stockton of Parma, Mrs. Anna Lewis of Nampa; and Miss Nettie Van Winkle of Boise.
