Floyd Denman Carlisle, well known Coldwater farmer, died in Denver, Colo., last Sunday morning after an illness which extended over several months. He was taken to Denver about two weeks ago to a clinic for medical aid, but to no avail.
Funeral services were held in the Coldwater Methodist church at 2:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon and were in charge of the pastor, Rev. Major W. Parker. A ladies quartet composed of Mrs. Fred Anderson, Mrs. L. G. Whitzel, Mrs. Rosemary Huckelbridge and Mrs. J. W. Brewer sang three songs, "The Old Rugged Cross," "Under His Wings" and "We'll Understand It Better Bye and Bye."
The pall bearers were Roy Deewall, F. H. Moberley, H. L. Murphey, Muriel Gregg, Dan Jackson and Ben Wolf.
Burial was in Crown Hill Cemetery.
Floyd Denman Carlisle, son of Edro and Myra Carlisle, was born at Arkansas City, Kansas, April 23, 1892, and passed away at the Spears Sanitorium, Denver, Colorado, March 11, 1945, at the age of 52 years, 10 months and 11 days.
Floyd lived at the home in Arkansas City where his mother, one sister and one brother passed away. He moved with his father to Binger, Okla., in 1903 and in 1913 came to Comanche County, where he spent the rest of his life.
On February 5, 1919, he was united in marriage with Miss Tacy Ellen Beitler at Coldwater, Kans. To this union four children were born. They are: Myra Ellen Smith, Elwood and Elva Ruth, all of Coldwater, and S1c Glen Edro who is serving in the U. S. Navy. When last heard from he was in New Guinea.
Floyd was a member of the Fairview Methodist church and was greatly missed in that community when, because of failing health he was forced to retire from his farm and move to Coldwater.
He is survived by his wife and four children, two grandchildren, his father and one half sister, Mrs. L. J. Gillingham of Binger, Okla., also other relatives and many friends.
Mr. Carlisle was a kind and thoughtful husband and father, an industrious and successful farmer and a good neighbor. Everyone who knew him was his friend. During the several months before his death he was confined to his home in this city, but he never complained and was always in good spirits. His passing is a distinct loss, not only to his family but to the community as well.
The sorrowing relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
