Charles Dertinger, a prominent
young farmer of LaSalette, died on Monday morning.
This was a sad shock to his many
friends, as only a few days ago he was as well as ever.
He contracted the flu, which
developed into pneumonia, and despite the best medical attention he
could be given, he died Monday morning.
Mr. Dertinger was 31 years of
age, of fine physique, well-known and popular among his friends.
He made his home with his mother
and was the only man left to look after the farm.
Mrs. Dertinger is also ill with
the flu, and they were unable to get a nurse or anyone to look
after them, Miss Myrtle Turnbull volunteered to go and do all she could
to help them.
The funeral took place on
Wednesday, when friends met at the family residence and proceeded to the
Church of Our Lady at LaSalette for services. The family have the
deepest sympathy on their many friends.
