Dennis J. Dwyer

The subject of this sketch was a son of Mr. and Mrs. D.C. Dwyer, of this city, and was born in old Lanesfield, about two miles northeast of Edgerton, June 7, 1868, and died at his residence in Edgerton November 21, 1809 [i.e., 1909], being 41 years, 5 months and 14 days old. About two years ago Mr. Dwyer was stricken with tuberculousis [sic] which was the immediate cause of his death. Dennis was a patient sufferer, and while he realized that he never could recover from the terrible malady he never uttered a complaint.

Something like fourteen years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Deyo of Kansas City in Kansas City. To their union were born three children, two daughters and one son who with their mother survive the father and husband.

The funeral services were held from the Church of the Assumption in this city at 10 o'clock last Tuesday morning, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Father Harron, who said the Requiem Mass, after which interment was made in the Catholic cemetery east of this city.

Denny Dwyre [sic] was known to practically every resident of this vicinity having grown to manhood here and at Lanesfield and has a host of friends who deeply sympathize with the bereved [sic] wife, children, and aged father and mother and brothers and sisters in their hour of sorrow.
