Obituary of Marc DeMarc (1889 - 1971)

I'm still working on posting the obituary collection that was in my grandmother's possession.

This obituary is for Marc DEMARC who was my great-uncle, married to my great-aunt Daisy MIX. He married my great-aunt relatively late in his life, he was 53 and she was 29. They had 3 sons together.

Below are two obituaries my grandmother had. All identifying information about the newspaper has been trimmed off.

  1. Strange - the second obit states that a "Rev" of the J's Ws Church would officiate the funeral! Jehovah's Witnesses know that the only being who can legitimately be titled reverend is Jehovah God himself, not any human. Must have been a mistake.
