Was a Pioneer Resident of this Section and Highly Respected

     Last Tuesday the death of William VonBerge, a pioneer resident of Idaho county occurred.  The deceased slipped quietly away into rest in the afternoon.  His daughter, Miss Elsie had just left for the store and her father was sitting in a chair, his wife thinking that he was sleeping, but shortly later it was found that his condition was serious and his daughter was called back from the store and a doctor summoned.  The decease followed a period of ill health which has existed for some time.

     William VonBerge from his long residence in the county had an extensive acquaintance among the citizens on the prairie being well known and respected by everyone who have had business associations with him.  He followed farming in the Fenn section for some time and later conducted a brewery in Grangeville, which business he discontinued and later he devoted his entire attention to his property interests on the prairie.

     Deceased was about 65 years of age and leaves surviving him a wife; two sons and a daughter who reside here in Grangeville.  The funeral will be held next Saturday at 10:30 a.m. from the house, under the direction of Undertaker W.E. Graham
