The following unidentified newspaper article was found in a scrapbook owned by Betty Burton of Lowell:
Clarence Daniel Tribbey was born August 25, 1896, at El Paso, Ill., and died in St. Margaret's hospital in Hammond December 28, 1917, aged 21 years, 4 months and 2 days. About three years ago he united with the Church of Christ at Secor, Ill., and since that time he has been faithful to his Savior. He was an excellent young man and commanded the respect and esteem of all whom he came in contact, and his beautiful Christian character caused all his associates to love him and the example set by him as a Christian is worthy of the consideration of all young men. He was the support of his mother and his small brothers and sisters for some time, and he will be doubly missed by them as a financial helper and a loving son and brother.
Funeral services were held in the Christian church Sunday, December 20, at 2 p.m., and were attended by a large number of his friends and relatives. Rev. J.L. Thompson, of Chicago, preached the funeral sermon. The church choir furnished the music. The remains were taken to Bloomington, Ill., Monday for burial. Undertaker John Castle was in charge. The sorrowing mother and children have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
