In Reply to: Robert Waite -- death notice by Beth Overstad of 872


Omro Journal
Thursday, October 14, 1880
p. 5
DIED.
In our village on Thursday morning at one o’clock of consumption, Robert S. Waite, aged 24 years and 5 months.
The funeral of Mr. Waite was attended from the house of Mrs. Holden on Friday afternoon, with one of the longest processions we have ever seen in Omro. The services were conducted in accordance with the rites of the Knights of Honor, of which the deceased was an honored member. The number in attendance clearly indicated with what respect Mr. Waite was held. The stores in town were closed from 1:30 to 3 o’clock.
