Obituary: Jay Morton
Jay Morton, one of the best known and highly respected citizens of Rockdale Township passed away at St. Vincent's Hospital at Erie on Friday, August 7 at 1 o'clock, after an illness of some time, followed by an operation 3 weeks ago. All the kind and tender care and loving hands and the best of medical skill could do was done to alleviate his suffering but to no avail. He bore his last long illness with patience and Christian faith and therefore approached the end in peace. He was a good neighbor and a good friend and a kind and loving husband and father. The deceased was aged 55 years and had resided in Rockdale Township nearly all his life and will be sadly missed, not only in the home, but in the community where he has resided so many years. He is survived by his wife, three sons and two daughters, namely Philip and Dewey of Rockdale twp., Howard and Mrs. Emma Waid, of Erie and Mary at home, one son Earl having preceded him in death 13 years ago. He is also survived by a host of close friends. Funeral services in his memory were held at the bereaved's home on Sunday, August 9th, conducted by his pastor, Rev. Glenn Reed, of the P. B. Church of Brown Hill and was attended by a very large gathering of sorrowing relatives and friends. Three songs, " The Pearly White City" "When The Silver Clouds Shall Break" and "Going Down The Valley" were sung by two friends, Mrs. Etta Watson and Fred Hammond. The floral offerings were many and beautiful and showed the high esteem in which the deceased was held. The pall bearers were neighbors, Charles, Roy, Fred and Lonnie Hammond, Harry Willis and Allen Willey. Interment was made in the Townline Cemetery. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community in the loss of their beloved husband and father. Thus time has passed another dear one out from the sufferings of this life. Into that larger life, where sickness and sorrow are not known
