OBITUARY - HOWARD WALTER

Howard WALTER was born November 18, 1875 near Mount Ayr, Iowa and departed this life June 6, 1944.

After the age of seven years he came to Kansas with his parents who located near Howard, Kansas. He was united in marriage April 18, 1900, [Elk County, Kansas] to Maggie J. RUSSELL. To this union two children were born, one of whom died in infancy.

He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife and one son, Carl, his daughter-in-law, Alice, and a granddaughter, Betty of Sedan; two sisters, Lulu MORGAN of Howard, and Minnie SHANNON of Chicago, Illinois, and two brothers, Lee and Dale of Wichita.

Preceding him in death were two brothers, Alfred of Howard, and Clyde of Zenda.

A few years after the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. WALTER, they moved to the Crum district in Chautauqua county where they resided until three years ago when they moved to Sedan and purchased the home in which they lived.

Mr. WALTER was a prominent farmer in the Crum neighborhood. His irreproachable character and sterling qualities made him an outstanding leader in that vicinity where he was active in all that stood for the best interests of the community.

At the age of 14, Mr. WALTER united with the Methodist church at Antioch near Howard, Kansas and later when they moved to Sedan he united with the Christian church here.

Mr. WALTER lived an exemplary life and was a devoted husband,a kind father and a true neighbor.

He was always ready to do a kind deed and was an inspiration to the community in which he lived.

He will be sadly missed by relatives and friends.
