Palms, William Everett (2 APR 1882 – 1 Jan 1919)

William Everett Palms died at his home at Tioga on Wednesday, Jan. 1st, 1919, after a brief illness with influenza followed by other complications. He was born at Augusta to Mr. and Mrs. George Henry Palms on April 2, 1882. He moved with his parents to Greenwood in 1892 and lived there for a number of years. He was united in marriage to Miss Mabel Dean on Dec. 21, 1915, and about that time he entered the mercantile business at Tioga. He was very successful in this business and continued it up to the time of his death.

Bill Palms was a whole-souled genial man who was held in high esteem of this community for he combined uprightness and integrity in all his business and social relations. He numbered his friends by the score for he was always pleasant and accommodating and his death is a matter of sincere regret to all. He is survived by his wife and infant son; his mother, Mrs. Hannah Palms; his grandmother, Mrs. A.E. Palms, who is 95 years old; and four sisters—Mrs. Nora Begley of Missoula, Mont.; Mrs. Ina Ripplinger of Neillsville; Mrs. Miriam Sheppard of Hudson and Mrs. Irma Meade of Marshalltown, Iowa. His father died in May, 1915. After a brief service by Rev. J.A. Moats, his remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at Greenwood.
