At the age of 16 years he became a member of the church, and until his recent illness, he was faithful in his attendance. In 1897 he moved to Illinois and on December 31, 1899 he joined in marriage to Miss Conie Wilson. Mr. McGeary is survived by his widow, two sisters, Mrs. James Young of Vandergrift, Pennsylvania and Mrs. Lucella Stuart of Seattle, Washington, several nephews and nieces. Two sisters and two brothers preceded him in death.

This community was shocked Friday morning when the word came that Norman McGeary had passed away Thursday evening at the Perry Memorial Hospital. Mrs. McGeary was formerly Miss Conie Wilson and the sympathy of the entire community is extended to her in her sorrow. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Norberg Funeral Home. Rev. Augsburger officiating. He was laid to rest beside loved ones in the Limerick Cemetery.
