Hi again, Helen.
The Sherman Democrat, Sherman, Grayson County, Tx 27 January 1941.
Drops dead at cafe here.
Joe E. Armstrong, 52, operator of a service station at 1703 East Lamar, died suddenly Monday at 10 a.m. at the
Morris cafe, 611 East Lamar, where he had gone for a cup of coffee. He resided at 103 North Carr. Attendants
at the cafe said that Mr. Armstrong complained of indigestion and drank two cups of coffee. He got up to leave and
dropped to the floor. He was pronounced dead when an attending physician arrived, death being attributed to
heart trouble with which he had been bothered for two years. Funeral services will be held at 2.30 p.m. Tuesday at the Key Memorial Methodist church, conducted by the Rev. C. W. Thomas, pastor, assisted by the Rev. E. L. Silliman, retired Methodist minister. Interment will be in West Hill cemetery, directed by Talley. The body is to
remain at the residence until time of services. Mr. Armstrong was born Nov. 12, 1888, at Edinburgh, Scotland. He
was a world war veteran who served 16 years in the United States Navy. He came to Sherman 13 years ago from
Madison, Indiana and had resided here since. He was a carpenter at the Hardwicke-Etter company before he
began operation of the service station three years ago. He was married 12 years ago to Miss Billie Simmons, who
survives. Other survivors are a son Joe Edward Jr., of Sherman, and a daughter, Audrey Irene Armstrong of Indiana. Fred.
