Ryan, John (5 Feb. 1864 - 4 Mar. 1946)

Loyal - John Ryan, 82, a resident of Loyal since the fall of 1918, died at 1:30 p.m. yesterday at his home, the result of old age complications.

The body is lying in state at the Loyal Funeral Home, where the Holy Name Society of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, of which he was a member, will conduct a rosary service Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock.

Due to the pastor, the Rev. Aloys Zinthefer, being out of the city, the time of the funeral has been set tentatively for Thursday morning at 9 o’clock at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Internment will be made in the parish cemetery.

Mr. Ryan was born in Buffalo, Wis., Feb. 5, 1864, and lived in Southern Wisconsin until after his marriage to Lucy McGrath at Waupun June 8, 1897. Mr. and Mrs. Ryan lived at South Randolph and Cambria until coming to a farm 1 mile north of Loyal, in the fall of 1918. They continued to make their home there until the present time.

Surviving besides his wife are 12 children, Mrs. Anton (Grace) Klimmer and Mrs. Edward (Nellie) Searvogel, both of Loyal; James Ryan, Randolph; Charles Ryan, Fox Lake; William Ryan, Elroy; Mrs. Arthur (Margaret) Searvogel, Randolph; Mrs. Bernard (Rosetta) Beaver and Mrs. Henry (LaVerne) Degenhardt, both of Loyal, and Henry, Gladys, and Nora Ryan and Mrs. Wilder (Isabel) Kennow, all at home.
