OBITUARY ~ CECIL IRVING ROUTH

Cecil Irving Routh, son of Gladys and Addis Routh, was born on a farm east of Clearfield, Nov. 23 1916 and pasted away Sept. 20th, 1925, aged 8 yrs. 9 mo. and 27 days. His mother died Jan. 9th, 1920, and since then he and his brother Donald have lived with their grand-parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dave Routh. He has spent part of his vacations with his grandma Bennett at Davenport, la. Cecil was of a happy, cheerful disposition and bright in his studies, He started into school Sept. 7th but was taken sick Wednesday morning with that dread disease infantile paralysis. Medical aid was of no avail and he passed away Sunday evening at 6 o'clock, being conscious to the end. He has been raised in the church and S. S. His sickness following closely the death of his school mate, Ethel Grace, made him realize the seriousness of the disease and he often asked Dr. Reed if he was going to die. On Friday he talked to his grandma and then offered a prayer, asking God to let him live awhile longer, but if not he was ready to go, a prayer that many an older person could not pray.

He leaves to mourn, his brother Donald, half brother J. B., father and step-mother, Mr. and Mrs. Addis Routh, grandparent Mr. and Mrs. Dave Routh, Mrs. D. I. Bennett, and many other relatives and friends.

The funeral service was held at the Routh home on Monday afternoon conducted by the pastor Rev, A, J. Matthews.
