For Obituary Sunday I am sharing the obituary one of my great grandfathers. He is my mother's grandfather on her father's side. Here is a copy of his obituary from the Renville Star Farmer Renville, Reville County, Minnesota February 19, 1920 Sacred Heart News Those from out of town who attended the funeral of W.A.Day were: Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Johnston, of Clinton, Mn, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Wiley of Ortonville: Mrs. Betsy Lockwood, of Minneapolis; Mr. John Lockwood of Minneapolis; Mr. and Mrs. R.C. Nolton, Mr.and Mrs. Lonzo Nolton, Mr. Ollie Getchell and Otto Krishbaum and son, Arnold of Granite Falls, and Charlie Hinsch of Granite Falls. The Funeral of Wm. A Day was held Wednesday at the Trinity Lutheran Church. Rev. Nobbs conducting the service. Mr. and Mrs. Melsness sang a duet and Miss Allie Fieldhammer sang a solo. A large number of friends were in attendance to pay their last respects to the departed. He leaves to mourn his early death, his aged mother, Mrs. Betsy Day, his wife, and eight children, Willie, Dewey, Morris, Fairfax, Bernard, Lester, Grace and Gladys. The Pall bearers were chosen from the business men of town and were: H. O. Skalbeck, J. N. Stenborg, Nels Hove, Torlief Arestand, J. H. Paulson and O. C. Sparstad. Interesting to note that his wife was not named which could be trouble with genealogy research. Her name was Carrie Lockwood Day. William is buried just outside of Sacred Heart, Minnesota. Next to him is buried his wife and an unnamed baby. William was quite the business man and I would loved to had the opportunity to have known and listened to his ideas. Rest in peace great grandpa, we will meet someday. Grace
