Churchill, Frank Lull 1869-1931 Morris Obituary

Frank Lull Churchill Dies Sunday at Home Near Morris

Was Life-Long, Respected Resident of Community
Where He Died---Funeral Wednesday

Morris, Jan. 28---Frank Lull Churchill, only child of James and Carrie (Lull) Churchill, passed quietly to rest at his home, about two miles below Morris, on Sunday morning, January 25, after an illness of many months' duration.
Mr. Churchill, who was born December 26, 1869, spent his entire life on the farm where he died, as did also his mother, the late Carrie Lull Churchill, who died in June, 1930. His early education was secured at the Filer school and later he attended the then Morris Union school. After his education was completed, he became associated with his father on the farm and continued to operate it until the time of his death.
He was married October 23, 1906, to Bertha Starr, only daughter of Henry and Celia (Hull) Starr. To them one son, Starr Churchill, was born, a young man of unusually fine attainments, whose untimely death last May 4 caused widespread sorrow.
Mr. Churchill, who was not in good health at the time of the passing of his son, was unable to rally from the shock, and he continued gradually to fail from that time to the end.
The deceased was a man highly respected by all who knew him, quiet and of a reserved character, yet he had a large circle of friends, all of whom will cherish his memory. He was always interested in any movement which would further the development of this township and held numerous offices of trust at various times.
To Mrs. Churchill, who has been bereft of both husband and son within less than a year, the sincere sympathy of the community is extended.
The funeral services, conducted by the Rev. F. G. Leonard of the Universalist church, were held at his late home this Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock with burial in the family plot in Hillington cemetery.
