Remains of Robert Steele Followed To Grave by Host Of Sorrowing Friends

"Last Sunday afternoon the mortal remains of Robert Steele were laid at rest in Hillside Cemetery. The burial ceremony was read by Rev. Mr. Bellam of Sparks in Trinity Episcopal Church. The church was filled with those who sought by their presence to show that last tribute of love to an old resident.
There was no euology delivered during the services; no voice was given, to testimony which almost everyone in the church could have given, either from experience or from lips of friends, but many a person who followed in the cortege which wound its solemn way to open grave on the hillside, could have told of material and moral help freely given by a pioneer who had passed over the great divide. To this one he had given material help, to the the courtage needed to face difficulties anew. That is why no eulogy was pronounced, there was none needed.
The pall bearers whose mournful task it was to lay the casket in the tomb, were O. Sessions, Rufus Kinney, William A. Fogg, D.C. Wheeler, Orvis Ring, Peter Dalton, James Kerr and Judge Frank Bell.
Many floral offerings were laid on the bier and covered the funeral black with color symbolic with hope." (bio by: Eileen)
