January 10, 1939


Horace B. Coleman, publisher of the Lu Verne News for more than 12 years, died Saturday afternoon at 4 o’clock, aged 56, of heart disease.

Mr. Coleman, who had been troubled for some time with the heart disease, had been confined to his home two weeks with influenza. His paper was not published week before last, because of a yearly vacation. Last week, William Jennings, former Corwith Hustler publisher, served as publisher. What will be done from now on has not yet been determined.

Relatives who survive are the editor’s mother, Mrs. Carrie Coleman, who lived with him, and two sisters, Louise Coleman, Waterloo and Mrs. Faitha Mitchell, of Long Beach, Calif. Miss Coleman arrived Saturday night, but Mrs. Mitchell was unable to come. Mr. Coleman was never married. An only brother, W. B. died suddenly in November.

Mr. Coleman came to Lu Verne from Baxter, near Des Moines, where he published a newspaper.

Funeral services are to be held at the McCullough Funeral Chapel here at 2 o’clock today (Tuesday), and will be followed by a short service at the grave in the Lu Verne cemetery.
