Death came on July 3rd after only a brief illness, which, however, was full of intense suffering. A brief life, but a busy and useful one, is ended.
Lorraine was a young man who had a host of friends here at his old home and it was with a feeling of deep sorrow that they learned of his death.
Brief funeral services were held at the home in Morgan Park, Monday morning in charge of Rev. C.A. Brown, pastor of the Lowell M.E. church. He was a member of the Morgan Park Odd Fellows lodge and that order conducted their services in Morgan Park. After the services the remains were brought to Lowell, where services were held at the M.E. church. The remains were taken to the family cemetery at Plum Grove for burial. Undertaker William Sheets. Members of Lowell lodge of Odd Fellows acted as pall bearers.
The deceased leaves to mourn his death, his wife, three children, his aged father, two brothers, Joseph, of Lowell, and Elmer, of Crown Point, two sisters, Mrs. Forrest Gormely, of Chicago, and Mrs. S. Neil Baird, of Billings, Montana, and a host of relatives and friends.
On behalf of the family, I want to thank each and every one, who so kindly helped during the sickness, death and burial of my son, Lorraine Dinwiddie. The wonderful collection of beautiful flowers and the large attendance for the short service at the home and the service at the M.E. church in Lowell, and at the cemetery, prove a real friendship and sympathy. No mere words can express the feelings of the family toward those friends in our need.
