The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1932

AGED and RESPECTED CITIZEN ENDS HIS LIFE.

A cloud of deep sorrow has rested over the community since Tuesday morning when it became known that W. W. QUICK, old resident and highly respected citizen of Clinton township, had ended his life during the night. Discovery of the tragic death of Mr. QUICK was made by his son-in-law, Lester STEPHENS, when he went to the home Tuesday morning. Dr. O. L. FULLERTON of Redding and Dr. MILLER of Blockton were called and examination revealed that Mr. QUICK had ended his life by shooting himself in the forehead with a .22 calibre rifle. A note of explanation, addressed to the family, was left, directing that no inquest be held. The body was brought to the Rhoades Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, where it was prepared for burial and where funeral services will be held this (Thursday) afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The services will be conducted by Dr. Jesse JOHNSON, pastor of the United Presbyterian church.

Mr. QUICK was born in Indiana May 17, 1862. He had lived in Ringgold county since early manhood and was held in high esteem. He is survived by four children - Carl and Glen QUICK of the Redding vicinity, Mrs. Mary STEPHENS of the Redding vicinity and Miss Wilma QUICK who is a student at Iowa State Teachers College, Cedar Falls.

OBITUARY - W. W. QUICK

William White QUICK was born May 17, 1862, in Hope, Indiana, and passed away at his home near Redding, Iowa, March 15, 1932, aged 69 years, seven months and 28 days.

Most of his early boyhood was spent in Indiana, later moving to Nebraska, where on September 12, 1890, he was united in marriage to Eliza MILLER, who preceded him in death on March 29, 1916.

In 1892, he with his family moved to Iowa and settled near Redding, where he spent the remainder of his life.

Since the loss of his wife and because of his life-time affliction, he spent the greater part of his time reading and was well versed on matters of the day.

Several years ago he became a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows in which he took an active part and gained much pleasure.

He leaves to mourn his departure four children, Carl and Glen of Redding, Mrs. Mary STEPHENS of Blockton, and Wilma, who at present is a student at Iowa State Teachers College, Cedar Falls, Iowa; four grandchildren - Edith and Edna STEPHENS, Harold and Kenneth QUICK; one sister - Mrs. Lillian HUGHES of Columbus, Ind., and one brother - Evan QUICK of Farmersburg, Ind.; and a host of other relatives and friends. One brother preceded him in death in 1930.

Funeral services, held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Rhoades Funeral Home in Mount Ayr and conducted by Dr. Jesse JOHNSTON, pastor of the Mount Ayr United Presbyterian church, were largely attended by neighbors and friends. The funeral services of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, in charge of officers of Mount Ayr Lodge No. 169, were conducted at the funeral home and the beautiful burial ceremony of the order was conducted at the grave in Redding cemetery, where the body was laid to rest.
