W.B. Bach Is Dead

Waldo B. Bach died yesterday morning, Wednesday, July 24, 1918, at the La Grande hospital where he had been a patient a little more than two weeks.

The funeral will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 at the Elks Temple, at La Grande.

Two weeks ago Saturday, Mr. Bach was taken violently ill at his work with the Wilson Lumber company. He suffered intense pain until late last night when partial relief came, and on Sunday he went to La Grande, to have the care of his old physician, as he formerly lived there. An operation for appendicitis was performed, but the appendix had ruptured and peritonitis set in. For ten days the patient gained and high hopes were cherished for his recovery. Then he began to lose ground, and his condition was considered hopeless for several days before the end.

Mr. Bach was born at Ann Arbor, Mich., and spent his boyhood in that university city. He had lived in La Grande some years before coming to Enterprise to take management of the office of the Wilson Lumber company. Mrs. Bach and their daughter, Doris, were at La Grande with him thru his last illness. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Bach have watched with anxiety for each report from the hospital, always hoping for good news, and feel deeply the family’s sorrow.
