This obituary was published in an unknown (to me) newspaper but surely from one that would have reported the news of Stoneboro, Mercer County, Pennsylvania, in October, 1933. My mother recorded her father-in-law's death date in the left margin.
These are the ages of Gust's children at the time of his death: Lee, my father, was 20; Dorothy was about 13; Tressa was nearly 12; Evelyn was about 9; William was 7; Donald was 3 and a few months.
Stoneboro, Oct. 4---Gust Doyle, aged 44, died at his home in Lake Township at 7:10 a.m., today after a lingering illness.
He was born, November 17, 1888, on the farm where he died. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Doyle of this place. He married Miss Twila Ransom on April 25, 1916. Mr. Doyle was a member of the Moose Lodge at Franklin.
Surviving are his widow, his parents, six children, Lee, Dorothy, Tressa, Evelyn, Billy and Donald, and two sisters, Emma, wife of C. E. Leathers of Stoneboro and Hazel, wife of F. Emerson of Naples, N.Y.
Funeral services will be held at the home on Friday at 2 p.m., with Rev. C. C. Clark, pastor of the Franklin Baptist Church, officiating. Burial will be made in Oakhill Cemetery.
