Young Man Gives Up Struggle After Hard Fight—Funeral Tomorrow
At the quiet hour of the early morning of yesterday James A. Vosika who had suffered for several days from that insidious disease, tuberculosis, passed to his eternal rest. Four several days he had been at the point of death and a few hours before he died he passed into a quiet sleep and passed away without awakening.
Mr. Vosika’s ill healthy dated back to about seven years ago when he was hooked by a cow and received a serious injury in one of his lungs, which was followed by a hemorrhage. Later on, he received treatment in a sanatorium and recovered his health, although his lungs remained weak. A few months ago he suffered an attack of influenza and from the effects of this he never fully recovered.
James A. Vosika was born in Webster County, Iowa, on July 9, 1896, the son of J.J. Vosika. The family moved to Olivia in 1912 and four years later on Oct. 24, 1916, James was united in marriage to Miss Veronica Kvech, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Kvech, who with two young children survive him. Other surviving relatives are his parents, four brothers, and two sisters, all of this place.
James Vosika was a young man of kindly nature and bright promise. He possessed rare natural ability as a machinist and had his life been spared would have taken a foremost place among the electricians of the country. His death in the springtime of early manhood, when life held out bright hopes and prospects, and when his young family was so in need of his love and care, is sad in the extreme. Public sympathy goes out to the bereaved wife and little ones in their great sorrow.
The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at nine o’clock at St. Aloysius Church.
