Vern Schutt died suddenly Thursday evening, April 17 while sitting at the dining table eating his evening meal at his ranch home some eight miles from Keeline.

At Pasadena, Calif., April 16, 1944 he married Miss Grace Baker of Keeline. They have one son, Dennis Ray, who is two months old. In September, 1946 they moved to Keeline and took over the Schutt ranch. They have lived there since that time.

Verner passed away with a heart attack the day after the couple had celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
