The Valley Irrigator
Butte County, South Dakota
April 18, 1949

FUNERAL of DAY GLOVER at VALE

DAY GLOVER DEAD.

The distressing news of the death of Day GLOVER of Vale on Wednesday came as a distinct shock to the many friends of the GLOVER family in this community. Day was found at his ranch home shortly after noon yesterday with a bullet wound in his head and a revolver in his hands and died without regaining consciousness. The supposition is that Day killed himself in a fit of despondency. Besides the widow, he is survived by three children, one a baby about two months old. Wallace BUTTS, field inspector for the Butte County Bank of Belle Fourche, made the discovery. Mr. BUTTS arrived at the ranch shortly after noon for the purpose of inspecting a bunch of cattle which Day was feeding for the bank. After knocking at the door and receiving no answer, Mr. BUTTS went to the pasture to look over the stock and when he returned to the house heard groans coming from within. Opening the door he discovered Day lying on the bed in an unconscious condition. Mr. BUTTS notified relatives and Dr. CLARK was sent for, but Day passed away before the physician arrived. The funeral will be held Saturday at 1 o'clock with services in the Community building in Vale.

One of the largest funerals ever held in Vale, took place Saturday afternoon, when services were held from the Vale community church for the late Day GLOVER. Rev. Carroll D. ERSKINE, pastor of the Sturgis Presbyterian church, officiated, assisted by Rev. E. H. KENT, pastor of the Vale community church. The music was under the direction of Mrs. Alma STEWART with Mrs. Nelson KINGSBURY at the piano. A quartet sang three selections. The casket was covered with floral offerings.

Friends were present from all the Hills towns as well as his home community. Interment was in the Vale cemetery. The pallbearers were Helmer CARLSON, Lee SIMMONS, James FOWLER, Otis SMITH, Russell ARNDT and Andrew ROSANDER.

Day Lyons GLOVER was born in Mount Ayr, December 11, 1886 and was brought by his parents to the Hills, in 1887. He was married to Susie COULTER (CULTER) at Deadwood, in July, 1928. He has lived on his ranch east of Vale, for many years and has been a most respected and upright citizen, and possessed a host of friends. He has had much sickness, only recently having returned from the Mayo clinic at Rochester, Minn., where he had been for treatment.

He leaves to mourn his untimely passing, his wife and three children (two by his former wife), his father, John G. GLOVER of Vale, a sister, Mrs. Chas. WILSON of Newell and a brother, Rome GLOVER of Vale. He was a member of the Vale Odd Fellow and Woodman lodges.
