Charles & Bridget Kennedy Himes


It is with sadness that we this week record the death of C. H. Himes, whom we referred to last week as suffering greatly from Bright's disease. The deceased had been subject to spells of illness for a year or more and was often confined to his bed for a short time. His last sickness came upon him two or three weeks ago, but last Saturday he was considered much better. Sunday, however, brought more unfavorable symptoms and the patient continued quite sick although no thought of immediate serious consequences was entertained until Tuesday night when he began showing signs of distress and continued struggling for breath until 7 o'clock Wednesday morning, when he died. Mr. Himes was a miller by trade, having superintended the milling department of the Sibley Roller Mills for several years, and as all know he was an expert in his profession, He leaves in Sibley a wife and two children, a daughter by a former wife and a brother to mourn his death. Deceased was 49 years old the 14th of February; an ardent Catholic he died firm in that faith and will be sadly missed by the church as well as by all others who knew him. The father of the bereaved wife came up from Sioux City last night and today the remains of the husband and father will be taken to Sioux City on the 3:28 p. m. train for burial.
