THE WESTERN STAR, 6 April 1917

Wayne Franklin Baker, aged 6 years, 7 months and 3 days, died at 11:20 a.m. on last Wednesday, April 4, 1917, at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Baker, in Protection. Following an attack of measles, a
severe case of pneumonia developed. About a week before his death an operation was performed for the removable of pus from his left lung. His strength and vitality were not sufficient to withstand the shock and
gradually his life slipped away. Wayne was an exceptionally bright and promising child, the pride of his parents and a favorite among his playmates. The family is well known in this city, having lived here for a number of years. The bereaved parents have the heartfelt sympathy of many friends in this their hour of inexpressible grief. The funeral services were conducted from the M. E. church in Protection yesterday at
10:30 a.m., Rev. P. I. Mawdsley being in charge.
