Kimble, Lawrence W. – Obituary

Enterprise, Wallowa County, Oregon

Lawrence W.Kimble was born at Benton, Pa, June 16, 1871. Died in Enterprise, Sunday, October 6th, 1918.

When Lawrence was five years of age his parents and family moved to Springfield, Illinois where they remained seven years, then moving to Minnesota. They returned to the old home in Pennsylvania where they now reside. Lawrence remained in the central west except for two years spent at the old home in Pennsylvania just before coming to the far west. He first moved to Kennewick, Wash., in 1911 and to Enterprise in the fall of 1912 when he became manager of the Enterprise M & M flour mills.

He was married January 21, 1893 to Amelia Lehman in Minnesota. His wife and three children, Mrs. Ethel Hamilton, Fern and Clarence Kimble, all of Enterprise, survive him. A brother, C.L. Kimble, lives in Spokane and the aged parents in Benton, Pa.

The death of Mr. Kimble was a great shock to his many friends in this city and surrounding country. He had been stricken less than a week. Mr. Kimble was an active member of the M.E. church in this city and a valued member of the I.O.O.F lodge of this city.

The funeral was largely attended and the funeral services at the M.E. church were conducted by Rev. Sibley. The Odd Fellows had charge at the cemetery.

The floral offerings were beautiful and large.

Mr. Kimble was quiet and unassuming but to know him was to realize his splendid character and great worth to the community. The sincere sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved ones in their great loss.
