N. W. Field (1908)
Died in Chelan on Sunday morning at 9 o'clock, Mr. N. W. Field of cancer of the stomach, after more than a year's suffering.
Deceased was born in Washington County, Iowa, 12 February 1860, and had been a resident of this state for about 20 years coming to Lake Chelan from Ellensburg about 15 or 16 years ago. He was a brother of Hon. M. E. Field, also of Mrs. A. T. Sampson of Mancos, Colo. He was married some three years ago to Miss Lizzie Riley by whom were born two children, twins and leaves besides, two children of a former marriage, Mr. Newton Field, aged 20 years and Miss Fern Field, aged 16 years.
Deceased was of a gentle, kindly disposition and was beloved not only by his family but also by all whose good fortune it was to know him, and all mourn his untimely death and join with The Leader in extending to the bereaved their tenderest sympathy.
Mr. Field was a member of Methow Camp No. 732, Woodmen of the World, thus making a thoughtful and generous provision for his family, who will get $1500 insurance from their order.
The funeral took place Monday at St. Andrew's at 2 p.m., the solemn and beautiful Episcopal burial service being rendered by Rev. H. J. Gurr, assisted by the choir. All those relatives hereinbefore mentioned and a large number of sorrowing friends and neighbors were in attendance. The casket was covered with wreaths and crosses of sweet blossoms. The burial under the auspices of the Methow Woodmen, assisted by the Chelan camp took place at Fraternal cemetery.
Among those present representing Methow camp, W. O. W. were Messrs Abel Shaw, Chas. Grant, Jack Healam, W. R. Brown and Consul Commander Lambert.
