Baxter, Lee Roy (9 AUG 1875 - 25 MAY 1906)

About four o’clock Friday morning May 25th, 1906, the spirit of Lee Roy Baxter peacefully flitted from a sick and suffering earthly mold to a bright and better world, leaving a place in this world that can never be filled.

He was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Baxter, and was born near Linden, Aug. 9th, 1875. They still mourn the loss of a son, Charley, who died nineteen months ago and this double loss excites the sympathy of all in their affliction.

There are besides, three brothers, Thomas of Linden, Joseph of Cobb, and John of Larimore, N.D., who will miss a dearly loved brother.

He was married June 26th, 1901, to Leona Maud Quick of Montfort, and she is left with two dear little children, a daughter, Berna, and son, Royal, to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father.

They moved to reside on a farm near Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., in June 1901. Mr. Baxter was an energetic and tireless worker, and probably overtaxed himself in preparing a comfortable home in that comparatively new country, for it was soon noticed that his health was failing him, and about a year ago they returned to Cobb, since which time he has gradually declined and death came as a relief from long suffering. The funeral services were held at the home in Cobb, on Sunday at one o’clock p.m., Rev. Wm. Shepherd officiating.; favorite hymns were rendered by the M.E. choir of Linden. Interment took place in the family lot in Montfort Cemetery.

He died at peace with his Maker and trusting to meet his loved ones again in heaven. (Montfort Mail)
