Description: Obituary - Madison M. Wyrick.

Date: August 2 1917

Newspaper published in: Houston, MO

Madison M. Wyrick was born near Cleveland, Tenn., Sept. 5, 1861 died July 17, 1817, making his age at time of death 55 years, 10 months and 12 days. He was married to Mary Mitchell Oct. 12, 1884. To this union 5 children were born: 3 sons, Henry William, James Luther and Fred Louie; 2 daughters, Minnie Lee and Clara Ellen, all of whom are yet living with his companion.

He professed a hope in Christ early in life and was a member of the Presbyterian church. Bro. Wyrick was a good neighbor, a kind and loving husband and a devoted father. he loved his home and toiled hard to furnish his family with the best to be had. I have known him for thirty years and have always looked on him as one of our best citizens.

His work on earth is done and we must give him back into the hands of his maker, trusting in the precious promises of God, that we will meet him again, "In the sweet bye and bye."

Thank God we sorrow not as those who have no hope, for we believe, "It is well with his soul."

Funeral services were conducted at the family home by Rev. J. J. Carty in the presence of a large crowd. Deceased was laid to rest in the Willow Springs cemetery.
