Wilford John Clements, aged 2 years, 6 months and 21 days, died at 12:45 a.m. on last Sunday, February 22, 1920, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Dykes in this city, after an illness resulting from a complication of measles and double pneumonia. Funeral services were conducted from the Dykes home on Sunday afternoon and were in charge of Rev. J. T. Wheeler of the Christian church. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery. Little Wilford was an especially lovable child and was a source of constant joy to the family. He was born in Middletown, Ohio, on August 1, 1917, and came to this city only a few weeks ago with his parents. Mr. Clements is a half brother of O. O. Landess, local manager for the A. Aitken Lumber Co. The parents who are so sorely bereaved by the loss of their darling boy have the sincere sympathy of all.
