Rowe, Ernest G. (6 JAN 1879 – 13 Apr 1919)

It becomes our sad duty this week to report the death of Ernest G. Rowe, who passed away last Sunday afternoon at 2:45 after a long time of intense suffering. In January, 1918, he had an operation performed in the Neillsville Hospital for rupture and gall bladder, from which he rallied for a short time, seemingly feeling better, but soon began to get worse and consulted a physician, who advised him to go to the Mayo Hospital at Rochester, Minn., for treatment, which he did, and was advised that his case was hopeless, but that he might live for several years. All summer and fall he suffered intensely, grew worse in the fall, and finally had to take to his bed, and after a time became helpless, when Dr. Seaman of Loyal was called to attend him, but of no avail, as he gradually grew worse and dropsy set in, which terminated his life on Sunday last.

Ernest was born on January 6, 1879 and was at the time of his death 40 years, 3 months and 7 days old. He has always lived here and was respected by all as a good neighbor and friends, devoted to his family and a good citizen. On Aug. 27, 1902, he was united in marriage to Miss Grace E. Mortimer, who, with three daughters, Irma, Isla and Fern, survives him. Beside these he leaves his mother, Mrs. Wm. Rove, five brothers and a sister. They are Walter and Forest of York, Jesse of Fremont, Glenn of Marinette and Vernon of McCleary, Wash., and Mrs. A.P. Fulwiler of York. The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon of this week from the M.E. Church, Rev. E.E. Strevey officiating. Interment was made in the cemetery here. Deepest sympathy is extended to those in bereavement, especially the sorrowing wife and daughters.
