HOLD SERVICES FOR E.A. STICKLE
Retired Farmer Of Pleasant Valley Community Dies At North Platte, Nebraska
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon from the Colver funeral parlors in Holyoke for Everett A. Stickle, 77, of North Platte, Nebraska, a former resident of the Holyoke territory for many years. Mr. Stickle died Sunday noon at his home at North Platte.
Rev. J.G. Bell, pastor of the Presbyterian church, officiated at the service, which was made as brief as possible at the request of Mr. Stickle.
Mr. Stickle's death was directly due, physicians said, to complications from injuries he sustained when struck down by an automobile in Holyoke on December 7, 1935, just a year lacking one day from the date of his death. His failure during the entire past year has been marked.
He was born on November 19, 1859 at Utica, New York, and was married more than 50 years ago to Effie Anna Evans. To this union were born three children, Mrs. Nora Tracy of North Platte, Ross, a son who died in infancy, and Mrs. Gladys Shew of Holyoke.
The Stickles moved to Holyoke from Washington, Kansas 36 years ago, settling on a farm in the hills southeast of Holyoke and making this their home until about seven years ago. Since that time, Mr. and Mrs. Stickle have divided their time between Holyoke and North Platte.
Mr. Stickle is survived by his widow, two daughters, Mrs. Tracy and Mrs. Shew, and by four grandchildren, Oleva Tracy of North Platte, Stuart Shew of Greeley and Wayne and Thelma Shew of Holyoke.
The Colver funeral car was summoned to North Platte after the body of Mr. Stickle Sunday, returning to Holyoke that afternoon; and the following person came from North Platte at the same time, returning to their homes Monday after the funeral services here: Mrs. Stickle, Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Tracy and daughter, Mrs. Dora Wisner and Glenn Bookwalter. The only other out-of-town persons who came for the funeral were Stuart and Thelma Shew, who came from Greeley. The latter is a student at the Colorado State College of Education. Mrs. Stuart Shew has been here for the past two weeks because of a recent operation.
