Best, Raymond

Sheridan Press, January 21, 1950

Raymond Best, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. L. M. Best, died Tuesday afternoon at their home on North Badger street, of pneumonia. Funeral services were held at the home, Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock conducted by Rev. A. I. Jones. Interment was made at Mount Hope.

The little child was born April 15th, and at the time of its death its age was 2 months and 5 days. From its birth until a week previous to its death it had never known a moment's sickness and was the very picture of health. When it was first taken sick the parents supposed it was only one of the many minor ills with which babyhood is afflicted, but later pneumonia developed, and on Tuesday afternoon it passed away.
