Brown County––Funeral

EDINBURG, March 2. — Wayne Coy, 18-year-old son and second child of Wilbur and Flossie Coy, passed away at his home, on State Road 31, just at the edge of Edin­burg, Thursday afternoon at 1:30.

Wayne had not been feeling well for the past month, but was able to be up most of the time and his condition was not considered seri­ous until Thursday morning about 10:30, when he suddenly became un­conscious and death came just four hours later.

He was born Dec. 21, 1910, in Brown County and lived in the com­munity in which he was born until about 18 months ago, when he came to Edinburg with his parents, who own and operate a filling station on State Road 31.

The past year he has been employed at the Swinn’s sawmill, southeast of Edinburg. He was a member of New Bethel Church in Brown County and had been a faith­ful attendant to the M.E. Sunday school since the family moved to Edinburg.

He leaves to mourn for him the father and mother; five brothers, Virgil, Orvil, Kenneth, Paul and Ervin; three sisters, Ardith, of Ind­ianapolis; Ruth and Pauline at home and two grandparents, W. I. and Eliza Coy; besides a host of friends.

Funeral services will be con­ducted at the Methodist Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock. Burial will be made in Rest Haven Cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Coy will bury their second born child, the first death in the family, on their twentieth wed­ding anniversary.
