Ringgold Record, 1882

IN MEMORIAM.

Willis Clarence LYNCH was born May 10th, 1858, in West Acton, Mass, and removed with his parents to Berwick, Ill., in 1865. He was educated at Hedding (M. E.) College, Abingdon, Ill., and admitted to the bar at Burlington, Iowa, May 5th, 1880, at the early age of 22, and began the practice of law the same year at Mt. Ayr. He was taken sick whilst visiting his parents in Bedford, Iowa, February, 1881; was convalescent a few months, took a relapse June 24th, and died July 14th, 1882, at the age of 24 years, 2 months and 4 days. The funeral service was held at the M. E. church, conducted by the Pastor, Rev. W. D. BENNETT. Thus in the midst of life there is death. He whom we loved so much; whose prospects in life were so bright; whose ambition was to scale the pinnacle of fame is gone. All was done that could be done to stay the hand of the fell destroyer; but in vain. The gifted and promising Willis has passed to the other shore. He knew when the fatal hour had come and whispered "friends" again and again, and to you is his last farewell sent with the glad assurance that he died trusting in the blessed hope of immortality.

NOTE: Willis Clarence LYNCH was interred at Bedford Cemetery, Bedford, Taylor County, Iowa.
