R. M. REEVES Dies at Sugar Creek Home

Respected Citizen Buried at Family Cemetery Following Funeral Service by Rev. Trotter

     R. M. REEVES, 65 years of age and a highly respected citizen of the Sugar Creek community, died at his home on Thursday of last week after four days of Critical illness following three years of failing health.  The remains were interred at the Dunaway cemetery, funeral services being in charge of Rev. J. E. Trotter, pastor of the Methodist church at Goodrich.  Hosts of friends attended the last sad rites.
     Deceased was born on August 22, 1859, in Graves County, Ky.   He was married early in life to Miss Nellie PHILLIPS of his Kentucky home community, her death occurring one year later.  He was again married to Miss Sara Elizabeth DUNAWAY of this county, and who survives with their only child, Mrs. Arthur L. EDNEY of the Sugar Creek community.  He is also survived by a granddaughter, little Miss Nina Marie EDNEY; a grandson, Master Lionel EDNEY; and a foster-daughter, Mrs. Norman HERBISON, who is a double-neice by marriage and has made her home with deceased since her infancy.
     Mr. REEVES had been a member of the Methodist church since early manhood; was a leader in church work and steward of his home charge many years.  For several years he taught successful singing schools at intervals, and continued to lead congregational singing for church services, until a short while before his death when impaired health prevented his attendance at regular services.
     Deceased was a devoted husband and father, a neighbor and citizen who stood for the best interests of his community at large.  His death is a heavy loss to his family and to the entire community in which he lived the greater part of his useful life of service.
