Pier, Ora F. (30 AUG 1885 - 2 OCT 1909)

At the home of his father in Abbotsford, Saturday evening, Oct. 2nd, 1909, of consumption, Ora Fred Pier, aged 24 years, 1 month and 3 days.

Deceased was born at Litchfield, Minn., August 30th, 1885. When but two years of age he moved with his parents to St. Paul, which was his home until 1902, when the family moved to Abbotsford, Wis. He worked in his father’s printing office for nearly a year and then began working for the Wisconsin Central. A year later he went to Fond du Lac and a few months after removed to Minneapolis, where he continued to reside up to within three weeks of his death, when he returned to his father’s home to pass his few last days with his loved ones.

The Phonograph extends to Brother Pier and family its heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement.

The funeral was conducted at Abbotsford by Rev. Richard Prescott of this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), and interment took place in Colby Cemetery.
