Emery Dye

 Victim Of Scarlet Fever


Emery Dye, a native of Nemaha county and for many years

a resident of this vicinity, passed away at his home in Omaha Friday. Death was due to scarlet fever, and because of quarantine

regulations it will be impossible to hold the funeral until

Saturday when services will be held in Omaha after

which the body will be taken to the Howe cemetery for burial,

with short services at the grave.

Mr. Dye, who was born on a farm near Nemaha was a son

of the late George Dye, a pioneer resident of Nemaha county

and his youth and young manhood were spent here.

He was the worthy son of pioneer parents and a man who was

always held in very high regard by his associates.

In 1917 he went to Omaha and shortly afterwards entered

the employ of the Street Railway Company as motorman,

a position which he held until his death

His long record is evidence of his efficiency.

When a young man Mr. Dye was married to Miss Carrie Minnig

of the Glen Rock neighborhood ad he is survived by his wife

and four children, two sons, Alton and George

and two daughters, Dorothy and Marjorie.

He is also survived by his brother, Charles Dye, who lives on a farm

near Nemaha and two sisters, Blanche and Jessie Dye of Auburn,

who have been spending the winter with their cousin,

Mrs. Carrie Davidson at Fullerton.

The members of the family have the sympathy of many

Nemaha county friends in their bereavement.
