Muscatine Journal May 8, 1914
Francis Edward Rynearson died after a lingering illness extending for over a year.
He passed away at his home at 109 McArthur street, Park Place at 4:30 a.m. May 3rd, 1914. He was born in Morgan county, Indiana, near Brooklyn, and had he lived till May 14th he would have reached his 54th birthday. He was the third of a family of ten children born to D.C. and Rachel Rynearson, who came to Iowa and Muscatine in 1875.
The mother died two years later. The father and children went to Kansas in 1880, where he died in about two months and Ed. as he was familiarly known by his brothers and sisters returned to Muscatine and the remainder of his life was lived here except a year in Nebraska and a year in Missouri. There now left of the once large family only a brother, Theodore of Keister, Minnesota, all the others having passed to the better land.
The subject of our sketch was married to Miss Lovina Lemmy June 11, 1885, in Muscatine and their union was blessed by the birth of two children, who reached maturity. Willis D. and Jennie. The first survives to be a help and comfort to his mother in her great loss and sorrow but Jennie passed to the higher life beyond this vale of tears on June 11, 1912, in her early womanhood, leaving a great sorrow in the home which is now intensified by the loss of the father.
While the beconing hands on the other shore include another loved one and the lonely hearts feel that it is well with these and that when the life work of the bereaved is done, there will be a glad meeting, they cannot refrain from grieving at the loss of one so dear.
Brother Rynearson was beloved by neighbors and friends for he was kindly disposed and was sure to have a kind word for all, especially the children and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He has been a member of the Latter Day Saints church since October 21st, 1894. He and his wife joining at that time.
He was a good and faithful Christian man and died in the hope of the "first resurrection."
