The community was indeed shocked to learn of the sudden departure from this life of Elmer Henry Tharnish which occurred at his home on Monday evening, Febuary 25, at 11:10. Death resulted from an infection of the throat, followed by a choking spell. Doctors worked unceasingly in an effort to relieve the condition but to no avail and the Spirit found release from the ills of this world in the fulfillment of the joys of life eternal. Loving hands were also administering to his needs, and the sunshine of the love of the hearts that are now lonely, because of the parting, lent its brightness to the pathway, as he went down the Valley of the Shadow, and up to the haven where the Light is the Glory of God. His sudden passing is much deplored by everyone and his place in the home will be hard to fill.
He was a student at St. Ludger's Academy and was a most likable young boy and was a favorite among his companions and school associates. He was readily recognized for his pleasant smile, and was a lover of all outdoor sports.
Elmer Henry Tharnish was born at Creighton, and would have been 12 years of age had he lived until March 16th, this year.
The relatives who survive are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Tharnish, Sr.; five brothers, Henry, Jr., Ernest, Albert, Leo, and Joe; and five sisters, Mrs. Otto Balleweg, Mrs. John Mathine, and Mrs. Orville Stolp. Elma Tharnish and Sister Rosalina of Westphalia, Ia.
