ANOTHER PIONEER, FRANCIS BONER, IS LAID TO REST

Another has been taken from the thinning ranks of the pioneers with the death of Francis Marion Boner, who died at the age of 89, in Lusk, on October 10th.

Funeral services were held at the Peet chapel, Saturday, October 13, at 2:00 o'clock. Pallbearers were Henry Wasserburger, C. A. David, Ray DeGering, Andrew Christian, Paul Miler and Al Bryant.

The songs, "In the Sweet Bye and Bye," "Beautiful Isle of Somehwere" and "Meet Me There" were sung by George Gibson, O.P. Harnagel, Mrs. Ezra Duncan and mrs. Emerson Bonner.

Dak.

Thirteen children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Boner, ten of whom survive - six sons and four daughters. Mr. Boner was preceded in death by his wife in 1922, his son Jess only three months ago, and by two children who passed away in childhood.
