Osbert Dietrich, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Harkleroad, was born February 9, 1915, and died March 14, 1917, at the home near Nortonville after an illness of a few days, aged two years, one month and seven days. He is survived by his parents, one sister, Nellie Elizabeth, one brother, Harold E., and his grandmother, Mrs. Tillie Newby. Osbert was a bright little boy, wise beyond his years. He was too bright for this world, so His Heavenly father called him home. He was dearly beloved by all who knew him because of his sweet smile and winning ways.
Funeral services were held from the Youngblood church at Nortonville Sunday morning at 11:30 o'clock, Rev. Roy Mutch officiating. Music for the occasion was furnished by the church choir. The floral offerings were many and beautiful and were cared for by Misses Veda Steele, Lucile Lashmet and Hazel Lacy. The bearers were Chester Hungerford, Edgar Hill, Harold Steele and Joseph Lashmet.
