Zelm, Roland E.* (16 Jan. 1912* - 3 Dec. 1925*)


Roland, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Zelm was born January 16, 1912 and would have been 14 years old at his next birthday had he lived. He attended the public school and passed from the 7th grade to the High School, which he attended here at Owen regularly until Friday morning when the Dr. advised him to stay at home. He was taken with a sudden chill and pains on his right side on Wednesday evening at about 9 o’clock, from which he never recovered, and passed away on Thursday at 1:30 in the afternoon. Three brothers and one sister and his parents survive to mourn his loss. The funeral services were held from the Fenwood M.E. church, Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Rev. Grandy of Withee preached the funeral sermon, and the Withee Methodist Choir sang. Interment was made in the Riverside cemetery.
