Hello fellow LIZER listers and cousins,
I just received a copy of the obituary written on my g grandfather John
J. LIZER. For those who may be interested, here 'tis:
>From the Weekly Wymorean, June 6, 1918
Death of J. J. Lizer
The people of Wymore were shocked Friday afternoon, by the new(s)
that J. J. Lizer had died suddenly in the office of Dr. Elias, where he
had gone to see the doctor, as he did not feel well. While unloading at
the Hirmon market, a few moments before, he complained of feeling sick,
and went from there to the doctor's office where he expired.
Mr. Lizer has conducted a dray line in Wymore for many years and
was well known to nearly everyone in the community. He was industrious
and honest and was respected by everyone who knew him.
The funeral services for the family and close friends were held at
the home at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, services being held at the M. E.
church an hour later, when Rev. Chamberlain preached a very touching
sermon. The remains wer laid at rest in the Wymore cemetery.
The Index for Wymore Cemetery Records states that the cause of death was
dilation of heart.
Warm regards to all from Virginia,
