JEFFERSON COUNTY IL 
OBITUARIES

Edward E. NOONER 
Died at his home in Kenton, Tenn., October 20, Edward E. NOONER, 
after a brief illness, of heart failure. The subject of this sketch was born in 
Weakley county, Tenn., near Dudedom, Feb. 8, 1870, where he spent 13 
years of his youth on the farm of his father. He was the son of William and 
Mary J. NOONER, moved with them in 1883 to Jefferson county, Illinois, 
where he professed religion and joined the M. E. church at Opdyke. He moved 
for the farm to Mt. Vernon and united with the Methodist church. In 1889 he 
returned to Tennessee and entered school at Union City, making his home with brother, 
T. J. NOONER and for three years was a student and a teacher. He entered school at 
Valpariso, Ind., after which he began teaching in Obion county, where he was 
universally admired. 
He was happily united in marriage to Miss Susie FOSTER on August 8, 1897. 
He was successfully teaching when he fell ill. His sorrowing wife, mother, brothers 
and sisters have suffered a loss which time has no power to restore,and they have 
our sympathy in their bereavement. His father, three sisters and a brother proceeded 
him across the river of death. Those that survive are Mrs. Cynthia and Mrs. Monia 
CAMPBELL of Bandwell, Ky.; Mrs. Will CONRAD of Dakota; John E. NOONER 
of Bandwell; T. J. NOONER of Fulton, Ky., and S. A. of Vicksburg, Miss. 

The deceased was laid to rest in the Foster cemetery, Revs. BRANSFORD and BROWN 
officiating. A few days later the angel of death knocked at the door of the same home and took 
their precious little babe, who for three months had brightened their home with its smiles. 
Weep not, dear mother, as those who have no hope, but live as your dear Eddie and little 
Edward lived and you will meet again by and by.
