of George D. Warner
The sudden death of Geo. D. Warner, Saturday evening, was a shock to the
entire community. Mr. Warner was in good health until last Thursday,
when he complained of severe cramps. Saturday evening he grew worse
and at 10 o'clock he died. The doctors pronounced it a case of acute
inflamation of the bowels.
The deceased was a most estimable young man of about 33 years of age, and
was highly respected by all who knew him. He was a son of the late
Arthur Warner, a pioneer of much prominence and until his demise a partner
of Major Charman in the Pioneer store.
In 1892 he was married to Miss Agusta Logus, eldest daughter of the late
Julius Logus, who with his little son Gerald survive. Mr. Warner
was a Native Son, and also a fireman and member of the K. P. Order.
His funeral occurred from the family residence Monday afternoon, Rev R.
K. Hammond of the St. Paul's Episcopal church officiating. The services
at the grave were conducted under the auspices of the Native Sons, the
deceased being laid to rest in the Masonic cemetery. All the orders
of which Mr. Warner was a member turned out in a body to pay their last
sad rites to one whose memory they cherished. The funeral was largely
attended, many relatives and friends being present from Portland.
those who extended their sympathy in my hour of bereavement, the burial
of my husband, Geo. D. Warner, and also to the Firemen, Native Sons, Knights
of Pythias, I desire to express my gratitude. I also appreciate the
kindness of friends in gathering flowers and other expressions of kind
hearts and willing hands.
