Charley Running obituary
During the past week the angel of death visited our village and two lives responded to its call. One of the victims, who is the subject of this sketch had been laid low by the white plague. Tuberculosis and death came after nearly five years of pain and suffering. Treatments of various kinds and operations gave him no relief. For the past year and a half the deceased has been confined to his bed and while he was hopeful of recovering, death only could end the terrible agony and suffering he endured.
Charley Running was born in Mitchell county, Iowa, August 3, 1880 and lived there until about 18 years ago when the family moved to a farm a few miles west of Lyle. In the fall of 1901 he was married to Miss Lena Knutson, who survives him. He also leaves besides his parents three brothers and a sister. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon and was conducted by Rev. Esser. Interment was made in the Sunny Side cemetery.
