Walker, William L. (1863 - 26 Aug. 1937)

William L. Walker, who had been making his home with his daughter, Mrs. Arland V. Stall, died at 8:00 A.M. Thursday as the result of old age complications at the Marathon county hospital where he had been a patient for some time. Funeral services were held at 1:30 P.M. at the Methodist church in Colby, Rev. C. Paul Nulton officiating, and internment was made in the Colby cemetery. Pall bearers were Art. Schmidt, Louis Schmutzler, George Carr, Louie Sachse, Emil Wolk and Fred Wolk. Those in charge of the flowers were Laureen Laughead and Doris Crossgrove.

Mr. Walker was born in Somerset county, Pennsylvania, in 1863, and spent his boyhood and young manhood in that state. In 1892 he moved to Hardin county, Iowa, and was married to Mande Willslogle at Elora, Iowa, two years later. The couple resided there until Jan. 23, 1928, when Mrs. Walker died and Mr. Walker came here to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. Arland V. Stall.

Those who knew him will remember him as a kind, loving father and a quiet likable man who attended strictly to his own affairs.

Surviving children are Mrs. Arland V. Stall of Colby, Stanley E. Walker, of Compton, Cal., Mrs. Frank Koss of Anderson, Ind., and Mrs. Kenneth D. Evans of Greenwood, Ind., also seven grand children.
