THE DALE NEWS VOL. I FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1938 NO 22 William Wright Buried Thursday Born in Bardstown, Kentucky, on February 17, 1865, William A. Wright died at the home of his son in Dale, Indiana, on June 7, 1938. Most of his life was spent in Dale, Indiana. On December 20, 1892, Mr. Wright was married to Clara M. Wood and to this union was born two children, Ollie M. Wright who died in 1894 and William Taylor Wright who with his wife Hazel survives. The wife and mother died on February 21, 1899. Mr. Wright was an active worker in the Dale Methodist Episcopal Church, having become a member in 1891. For a number of years he served as one of the trustees of this church. Mr. Wright's entire life was characterised by kindness, forbearance, patience and uprightness. The last years of his life were spent entirely in ministering to others and his faithful services won for him the admiration, respect and esteem of all those who knew him. Having lived in the same community more than one-half a century, he found abundant opportunity to make friends and the fact that all that knew him were his friends, is abundant indication of the manner in which he improved the opportunity. The community has lost an excellent citizen, the Church a loyal supporter and the family one, whose kind ministrations will forever be remembered. Funeral services were held in the Dale M. E. Church with burial in the Dale Cemetery. Rev. W. A. Skelton was the officiating Clergyman. Engagement Announced The announcement of the engagement of Donald J. Schaaf of Evansville, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Schaaf of Dale, to Miss Meryam Johnson, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. E. M. Johnson, of Sandborn was made recently.
