Baker Youth Dies Peculiar Disease
Clifford Storer 13 year old son of Mrs. Bessie Storer, died at the home of his grandfather, John H. Jett, of Baker Tuesday morning of cancer of the spine.
The disease, which is believed to have resulted from a fall, settled in the boy’s spine, and although everything known to medical science about combating the malady was applied, it spread and could not be checked. Clifford was taken to the shrine hospital in Portland and later brought back to Baker.
The youth a pupil in the sixth grade of the South Baker school, was cheerful throughout the long period of suffering.
The deceased was born in Portland September 17, 1915 and was brought to Baker a short time later.
He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Bessie Storer, a sister, Dorothy, a grandfather, John H. Jett and an uncle Jessie W. Jett.
