Tubbs, Irvin (20 SEP 1867 - 31 MAY 1924)

Expressions of sorrow were heard among friends and acquaintances last Saturday morning when news was received that Irvin Tubbs was not expected to live, and that the family had been summoned to his bedside. Mr. Tubbs had submitted to an operation at the Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire a couple of weeks previous for an affection of the bladder, and it was considered successful, with every hope of a recovery in a short time. Infection developed and death ensued in a few hours. It was a great regret that the family did not arrive at the hospital before he passed away, the end coming at about 11 o'clock Saturday forenoon. The remains were brought home Monday night and taken tot he farm where his son resides.

Funeral services were held on the lawn at the Theiler farm Tuesday afternoon, Rev. C. F. Klein officiating. A large number of friends, and quite a number of relatives from away attended the services. Burial was in the Mentor Cemetery. Deceased was 55 years, 8 months and 11 days of age.

Irvin Tubbs was born in Chickesaw Co., Iowa, Sept. 20, 1867. He came to Wisconsin when a boy, and Oct. 20, 1889, he was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Andrus. To this union were born six children, two sons, B. E. Tubbs of Phelps, and Jesse E. of this vicinity (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.); and four daughters, Mrs. Laura Dignin of Humbird, Mrs. Sybil Barkley of Strum, Beulah and Beatrice, who with their mother, mourn the loss of a kind and loving father and husband. Three brothers and four sisters survive. They are Charles Tubbs, Eugene Tubbs of Chetek, Allen Tubbs of Arlington, Wash.; Mrs. F. E. Halladay of Plover, Mrs. Julia Monroe of Chetek, Mrs. Alice Merryfield of Everett, Wash., and Mrs. Ella Sheldon, Green Bank, Wash. Mr. Tubbs and family came to this village nine years ago, living first on the Babler farm. They have many friends who extend sympathies in this bereavement.
