Obituary – Paschen
George W. Paschen died at the home of his parents 2 ½ miles west of Hanlontown, on Monday morning, November 17, of an incurable disease known as bulbar paralysis, from which he had suffered for the past two years. In the early stages of the malady the medical faculty of Iowa City were consulted and pronounced the disease one which baffled the skill of the profession. Later, in the spring and summer of 1901 George traveled in the South, visiting the noted health resort at Hot Springs, Arkansas, and various others, thinking that youth, aided by favorable climatic conditions, would be instrumental in restoring health, but all to no avail. Through most of his long illness be was able to be about and to ride out at times, but the last months of his life formed a period of intense sufferings, but through it all he was very hopeful, and patient to the end.
George W. Paschen was born at Muscatine, Iowa, March 4, 1875 and in 1884 moved with his parents to Worth County where he resided for the remainder of his days. He spent several years, however; at the Muscatine Commercial College, where he received an education which amply fitted him for a useful career though life. On September 5, 1900, he was united in marriage to Miss Minnie E. Cottrell, who with an infant daughter, his sorely afflicted parents and an only sister, survive him and mourn an irreparable loss. George was an honest, industrious and conscientious young man, kind, dutiful and loving in his family and faithful in all the relations of life, and these traits naturally won for him the friendship and esteem of all who knew him. His funeral services, held at the desolated home, were conducted by Rev. Sargent, of Mason City, who chose for his text Acts 10:34, 35. A beautiful musical service as rendered by Mesdames Phillips and Worden and Rev. Sargent, who sang with tenderness and sweetness, “Cleft for me,” “Morning Land,” and finally, the favorite of deceased, “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth.” The remains were viewed by sorrowing friends from far and near, and later were lovingly consigned to their last resting place in Clear Lake Cemetery. The afflicted parents and faithful wife wish hereby to return sincerest thanks to many kind friends who ministered to their loved one and strove to bring consolation to them in some of life’s most trying hours.
