OBITUARY ~ SAMUEL DYLVEN SMITH

Samuel Dylven SMITH was born Sept. 17, 1916 near Ravenwood, Mo. He was the fourth of eight children born to Samuel B. and Retha SMITH. He died Jan. 7, 1982 in a Des Moines, Ia. hospital.

Dylven or "Del" as he is know to most of us, grew up near Sheridan, Mo. and graduated from Sheridan high school. On Aug. 17, 1941 he was married to Evelyn Marie OGLE of Blockton, who survives. To this union were born a son and a daughter, both of whom died in infancy.

Del served 3 1/2 years in the army in World War II. Much of that time he was stationed in France.

Del and Marie lived for nearly three years in Oregon. For 19 years they operated a propane gas service at Pumpkin Center, Mo., and for the past seven years they have made their home in Blockton.

Del is survived by his wife, Marie SMITH; four sisters, Mrs. Ermil BLACK, Silverton, Ore.; Mrs. Floyd PIERCE, Kansas City, Mo.; Mrs. Jimmie MILLER, Guilford, Mo.; and Mrs. Frances MOORE, Blanchard, Ia.; and several nieces and nephews.

Pastor Milt HENDERSON conducted the funeral service held at 1:30 p.m. Jan 11, 1982 at the Blocton United Methodist Church. Pall bearers were Bill HUNT, Karl DAVIDSON, Donald STEWART, Earl DRAKE, Harold WALKUP and William ANDERSON. Interment was in the Blockton Cemetery.
