Rites Will Be Held Friday - Two Brothers and One Sister Survive Him

Fred E. Stewart, 58 years of age, and a resident of this city since 1900, died at 7:40 o'clock Sunday morning. He had opened his place of business for the day when he was stricken with a sudden coughing attack and died immediately. For as much as a year Mr. Stewart had suffered from a heart affliction which made his condition precarious.

Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon, at the Davis chapel at 1:00 o'clock and at the Presbyterian Church at 1:30, when Rev. Daniel Knox Ford will officiate. Burial will be made at Elkton, beside his parents, William and Jane Stewart. Pall bearers from the membership of the Woodman fraternity, of which Mr. Stewart was a member will be Henry Reese, H.C. Ruckle, Harry Hanson, Ole Holvig, Hugh Stokes and Tom Plummer.

Fred Edward Stewart was born October 8, 1883, and died at Flandereau, S.D., December 1, 1941, aged 58 years, one month and 23 days. When he was but two years of age he came to Moody County with his parents, to make their home on a homestead south of Elkton. In 1900 Mr. Stewart came to this city to be employed in the restaurant trade, and for the past twenty years had operated his own establishment.

In October 1928, he was married to Clara Way Roberts, who passed away on September 2, 1940.

He is survived by two brothers - Alex Stewart of this city, and John Stewart of Tracy, Calif., who is enroute here, and by one sister, Mrs. Jennie McCormick of Lusk, Wyo., who arrived here Monday evening.
