THE WESTERN STAR, 21 September 1945
Obituary of WILLIAM REIN

William Rein, who with his wife were residents of Coldwater for many years, died recently at St. Joseph's hospital at Booneville, Mo., at the age of 80 years.

He had made his home near Syracuse, Mo., since 1927, and previous to that time was a resident of Coldwater for about 25 years. He made the run into Oklahoma when the State was opened and took a claim at Tologa.

Later, Milt Schultise employed him to work in the Schultise & Allerdice Store in Coldwater and he remained in the employ of the store for nearly a quarter of a century.

Mr. Rein was married November 21, 1897, and enjoyed 48 years of companionship with his faithful wife, who is now 81 years of age. Mr. and Mrs. Rein came to Coldwater before the big fire which destroyed
practically all the buildings on the south side of Main Street.

Mr. Rein was born January 8, 1865, at Hoboken, New Jersey. Surviving are his wife, Sallie L. Rein, a daughter, Mrs. Irma Goodwin of Tillamook, Ore., and a sister, Miss Johanna Rein of Hoboken. Funeral services were
held in Parker funeral home in Otterville, Mo., and burial was in the I. O. O. F. cemetery at Otterville.

Mr. Rein was a conscientious and faithful husband, father and employed and had the respect of all who knew him.

Mrs. Rein has given up her home at Syracuse and has gone to Tillamook, Ore., where she will make her home with her daughter, Mrs. Irma Goodwin.
