Death Claims Young Oliver Dearn

Note: The title and text of this obituary are copied here as printed. The name Oliver Clinton Dern (not Dearn) is used in this database, as this is consistent with other family members as well as the cemetery records.

Oliver Clinton Dearn, 12-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Clinton O. Dearn, who reside about 30 miles north of Keeline, passed away in Douglas early Monday of this week, after having been taken there on Saturday evening for care and treatment at the Douglas Hospital. His condition was very serious when he was taken to Douglas, and everything possible was done for him, but to no avail.

The boy's death was due to traumatic meningitis, superinduced by an injury to the head suffered a short time ago. It is said this form of meningistis is not contagious.

The little fellow was an especially bright lad and his passing is a severe blow to his parents, who with his sister survive.

Oliver Clinton Dearn was born on February 12, 1915, at Manville. The funeral services were held in Lusk on Wednesday, with Miss Wilcox, who is stationed at Manville, officiating. A chorus composed of Manville school girls furnished music at the beautiful funeral services. Interment was in the Lusk Cemetery, in charge of the Universal Funeral Parlors.
