ANGEL OF DEATH CLAIMS PIONEER CITIZEN
The Angel of death visited the home of Mr. George Treece at six thirty-five Thursday morning and carried his spirit into the unknown world.
Mr. Treece had been in bad health for some time, caused from a severe attack of the flu which he suffered some few months ago. A few weeks ago he suffered a general breakdown from which he was unable to rally and while he suffered very much, he had been in an unconscious state for several days and death was peaceful.
Mr. Treece was 56 years and 8 months of age and outside of six years which he spent in Illinois; Arkansas and California he had lived here for forty years, his father having come to this country when he was 16 years old.
Mr. Treece was a true man with a beautiful character and the good friend of hundreds who will deeply regret his death. He was a member of the Christian Church and a Mason.
The funeral will be held at the home, Friday afternoon at three o'clock with the Masons of Steele in charge. Rev. L.S. Thurmond will preach the sermon after which the body will be laid to rest in the Holly Cemetery.
Surviving him are his wife, Maggie, five children, Ralph, Fred, Mrs. Ruth Funderburk, Mrs. Cloe Whitener and Miss Grace all of Steele except Ralph who lives in Phoenix, Arizona, but who arrived at the bedside several days ago.
He also leaves his father, Dr. L. Treece of Cooter, (brothers) J.H. Treece of McAllister, Oklahoma who is here and Frank Treece of San Francisco, California who is unable to come.
This paper extends its sincere sympathy to those who are left to mourn their great loss. We know that the memory of so noble a character will linger long in the minds and hearts of those who loved him, and they were many.
