Sidney Groover, Former Oxford Resident Taken By Death
Sidney B. Groover, aged 71 years, died at his farm home near Oakwood early Friday morning. Although Mr. Groover had been in poor health for the past few years, his death came very unexpectedly. At two o’clock in the morning Mrs. Groover noticed him breathing heavily and death came before a physician could be summoned.
For many years the deceased resided on a farm southeast of Orion, later retiring and moving to Orion village where he resided for a number of years until stricken with an ailment that confined him to his bed and from which he never recovered. Selling his home in Orion he again returned to the farm which he later sold to Detroit parties and purchased another near Oakwood, where the family moved several months ago.
The deceased his survived by his widow and one son, Levi, four grandchildren and three brothers, Charles and Ira, of Oakwood, and Eugene, of Lapeer.
Funeral services were held from the home Monday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock, Rev. F.I. Walker, of Orion, officiating and burial was made in Evergreen cemetery, Orion.
