Hoxie Sentinel
Hoxie, Sheridan County, Kansas
August 30, 1956


A large number of relatives, neighbors, and friends of long standing, attended funeral services Sunday afternoon from the Hoxie Methodist church for Corwin Bruce DEIBERT, who passed away Friday morning from a lingering illness. Rev. Ray D. APPLEGARTH, of the Christian church, officiated and interment was in the Hoxie cm. Honorary casket bearers were: Earl FARBER, O. W. STEINSHOUER, Decker MOSIER, Jay BARR, George PRATT and Herb CRESSLER.

The following great-grandsons were casket bearers: Jimmy MITCHELL, Billy ERICKSON, Kenny DEIBERT, Donald HOWARD, Jerry BLACK and Hadley MORGAN. The double quartet included the following: Aileen ROADHOUSE, Margaret PERCIVAL, Hazel ANDREGG, Anna CURRIER, Howard CURRIER, Eldon STEINSHOUER, Lloyd MORGAN and Alex FROMME, Gertie RICHARDSON was organist.

Corwin Bruce, eldest son of William and Charlotte DEIBERT, was born Oct. 14, 1860, in Macon Co, Friends Creek Township, in the state of IL, and passed to his reward at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. E. MORGAN on Aug. 24, 1956, at the age of 95 years, 10 months and 10 days.

At the age of five he moved with his parents to Ohio where they lived for about a year. They then moved to Ringold Co., near Redding, IA, where Corwin grew to manhood.

On May 27, 1883 he was united in marriage to Anna Belle ZIKE. They made their first home near Redding, IA. This home was blessed with 10 children: Charles, the eldest, passed away July 12, 1949; Mrs. Cora TURNER, of Superior, Neb.; Mrs. Laura MITCHELL, of Topeka; Mrs. Alpha HINES, of Yuma, Colo.; Mrs. Lena MORGAN, Wayne and Julius, all of Hoxie; Mrs. Zelma SALLADAY, who passed away Oct. 3, 1919; Frank, of Esbon; and Mrs. Edna COREY, of McCook, Neb.

In 1886, Corwin with his wife and two small children, came to western Kansas to take up a homestead in the Northeast part of Sheridan Co. They remained on this place for about a year then returned to Iowa.

In 1901 they returned to Sheridan county and lived on a place about five miles south of Hoxie. All of the children with the exception of the youngest were born during this time. Corwin remained in Sheridan Co. [Kansas] the rest of his life.

In 1906 he with his family, moved to the WALKER ranch south of Hoxie. He lived on this place until about 1935 when he ended his career as a rancher and farmer, and then lived the rest of his life with his various sons and daughters.

On May 27, 1933, he and his wife, "Anna Belle", celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary. But the Supreme Being had made His plan, and Anna Belle was called to rest on March 2, 1934.

In early manhood, Corwin was united with the United Brethern Church at Redding, Iowa, and remained with that faith until he was called home.

Altho Corwin lived to an advanced age, far beyond that of most men, he remained active almost to the end. Besides his children, he leaves two sisters: Mrs. Alma HARRIS, of Oakland, Calif.; and Mrs. Iva MURPHY, of Redding, Iowa; 44 grandchildren, 109 great grandchildren; 18 great great grandchildren; a number of other relatives and a host of friends.

He was always a kind and loving father and a close friend to all. There never was a stranger in his presence. He was always ready to help any person who was in need.

The body was laid to rest in the Hoxie cemetary [Hoxie, Sheridan County, Kansas].
