Title: Lorenzo Westover


Lorenzo Westover, of DeLassus, passed away at the Boone Terre Hospital at nine o'clock on last Friday morning, aged 69 years and 15 days. He had been in poor health for the past few years, but his condition did not appear to have become critical until about two weeks before his death, which was learned with genuine sorrow by his many relatives and friends in the county.

A Christian Science funeral service was conducted at the Cozean Funeral Home at four o'clock Monday afternoon by D. J. Hughes. Interment was in the Masonic Cemetery with Masons serving as pallbearers.

Lorenzo Westover, son of Martin and Julia Wildman Westover, was born on September 12, 1877, near Leadwood, and passed away at the Boone Terre Hospital on September 27, 1946. On March 22, 1889, he was united in marriage to Lucy Yeargain. To their union five children were born, two of whom preceded him in death. Ora Mae in 1903, and Percy Lee in 1923. Surviving, besides his devoted wife, are three sons, Jeff, of Brownsboro, Ore.; Leslie and Charles of Farmington. Route One; one sister, Mrs. Mand Turley, of Jonesboro, Ark.; and three brothers, Hugh Westover, of Philadelphia, PA.; Elmer, of Los Angeles, Calif., and Melbourne, whose present address is unknown here. He also leaves five grandchildren and thirteen nieces and nephews.

Lorenzo Westover had lived all his life in the community, except three years when he and his family lived in California. He was a man of sterling integrity, kind and unassuming in his ways, a good neighbor, devoted husband and father, and a progressive citizen, earnestly supporting what he believed to be right and for the betterment of our community. His passing is a distinct loss to the community as well as to his family.
