Obituary: George Range Taken By Death
George W. Range, resident since 1878, died at his home in this city Saturday morning from a heart attack. He had been in rather poor health the last several months, but had seemed much better of late, and had been about the streets as usual only a day or so ago. His death came as a great shock to his family and friends. Funeral services were held from the Congregational church Monday afternoon with Rev. R. L. Jenkins of the M. E. church in charge. Music was provided by Linden Barnett and Mrs. H. Z. Brown and pallbearers were William Rennewanz, George Jackson, Grant Armstrong, Don Hillhouse, Grover Israel and John Gantz. George W. Range, the youngest son of Rev. and Ms. James L. Range, was born in Crawford county, Pennsylvania, May 20, 1855. His early life was spent on his father's farm, and he was later employed by the Drake Oil Company near Titusville, the site of the old Drake oil well. At the age of 23 in company with his parents and younger sister, Nancy, he came west to Washington territory and settled on a homestead on the Patit five miles above Dayton. He was married to Miss. Emma Lindley December 7, 1886, and on this farm they made their home and reared their family of five children. Mr. Range retired from farming 1917  after having spent nearly 40 years in the industry in this county. He purchased a home in town where he and Mrs. Range came every spring after a winter's sojourn in the south. Mr. Range was a great reader and thinker, and his opinions were highly respected by all who knew him. He and Mrs. Range have been members of the Congregational church since 1904 and have been closely associated with the life of their church since that time. Mr. Range is survived by his widow, Mrs. Emma Range, Dayton; five children, Walker Range, Eugene, Oregon, Mrs. B. W. Roberts, Charlotte, North Carolina; Mrs. E. M. Burt, Portland, Oregon; Mrs. L. L. Becker, Oakland, California; and Mrs. W. L. Eager, Dayton. All were present at the funeral services Monday, although they were at widely distant points at the time of their father's sudden death. Mr. Range also leaves six grandchildren, one great grandchild, and a sister, Mrs. Allen Kelly, Baldwin Park, California, the last of the10 children in the James Range family.
