Odeon Swieven Passed Away October 25th in Georgia

It is said and being so sudden, is doubly distressing to the family and friends when a young life is snatched from us. Odeon Sweiven, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Sweiven of the township of Sacred Heart answered the call of his country for men and left with the contingent that went to Camp Forrest, Georgia on Oct 25th. He left in his usual health but had been there but a few days when he was taken ill with pneumonia and passed away Nov. 6, 1918 in the 29th year of his age. He was born on the home farm and was raised there. He has a brother Harry Swieven who is now at the front in France. The remains were returned home and the funeral was held Monday afternoon, Rev. Henry Nobbs officiating. The sympathy of all is extended to the bereaved in this their great sorrow.
