Lacey, John C. (1841 - 1878)

On Sunday morning last, at his home in this place (Neillsville, Clark County), Dr. John C. Lacey departed this life after a lingering illness of several months, at the age of 37 years.

Dr. Lacey has been a resident of Neillsville for the past seven years, during which time his practice as a physician has made him universally known throughout this county, and his uniform kindness and nobleness of character have made him as widely loved and respected. He was a conscientious and painstaking physician and a gentleman in the highest sense of the term who ever bore the test of intimacy to his own advantage.

During the long months in which he has been waiting the summons which he knew must come, many friends whose bedsides he had cheered were in turn found faithful watcher beside his, and the sorrows and anxieties of his loving family have been to a great extent shared by the whole community. After an impressive and beautiful funeral ceremony conducted by the Knights Templar and participated in by other societies of which the deceased was an honored member, the body was taken by the former to its last rest at Janesville, in this state.

Dr. Lacey leaves a wife and two children, half grown boys, who receive all the sympathy that friendly hearts can bestow.
