Smith, Jacob F. (1865 - 27 Nov. 1953)

Jacob F. Smith, father of Rev. Frederick J. Smith, a former pastor of the Colby Methodist church, died of a heart attack at the age of 88 years Friday morning at the Bethel Convalescent Home, where he had been living the past two years. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Colby Methodist church, Rev. Harvey Schall officiating, and internment was made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. Pall bearers were Charles Schulz, Gust Brehm, Harry Bender, C. A. Nelsen, Frank Goeltz and George Wicker.
