Dr. Grassham Died
Our town and community were shocked Sunday morning by the sudden death of one of our most valuable and respected citizens, Dr. R.H. Grassham. The doctor had been suffering form heart trouble for several months but was not considered to be in any immediate dangerous condition. He arose Sunday morning as usual about 5:30 o’clock and while dressing he became seriously ill and died within a few minutes.
Deceased was 60 years of age and had been a resident of this county for 25 years. A daughter, a brother, and two sisters survive him.
The funeral was held at the family residence Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock, conducted by Rev. R. A. Schell, pastor of the Christian church of Durant; also by Caddo Lodge No. 3, of which Dr. Grassham had long been an honored member.
The funeral was attended by a large number of friends of the family. A group of classmates of Miss Lucille Grasshm from STC attended in a body. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. All places of business closed during the funeral hour.
Dr. Grassham was a high type of Christian citizen, who was highly regarded by all who knew him for his kindly ways and helpful ministration to people of all conditions of life.
