Obituaries from the Lebanon Daily News: Volume XVIII
1900-Present


This file, Volume XVIII, now contains 519 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings mainly from the Lebanon Daily News. Due to time constraints, I was unable to alphabetize this file.

To navigate throughout this page, use the Find option found in the edit menu. This will allow you to find all listed instances of the name/surname you are searching for.

As I add more obits to this file, I will always drop them in at the top. This will aid returnees to this site from having to again browse the entire file. Note: I have these files listed as obituaries, but interspersed amongst the obits are; some funeral notices and also some funeral services. The notices and services many times contain information that is helpful to many researchers. In research there is no such thing as "too much information". Please overlook any duplications.

Many/most listings are connected to my family files, which are: Kindt, Copenhaver, Gettle, & McKinney.

Lebanon Daily News Obits of: 21 Feb 1887.... Today we are called on to chronicle another fatal accident that occurred on the Lebanon Valley railroad at Annville, which resulted in the death of John H. Meyer, who resided but a short distance from Annville, on a farm which he and his children were tilling. The deceased, for the past few years was in the habit of coming to Lebanon where he watched the stock market and dealt in options, at times being quite successful in his ventures. It is stated that a few years ago so fortunate was he in his stock ventures, that he had accumulated as much as $20,000, but this was soon lost again by unfortunate investments. Saturday he cut in Lebanon and having failed to go home with the early trains, was compelled to go on the 11:20 p. m. train, and although he had to run to make the train, he reached it and Annville safely, From Annville he walked east along the track to strike the lane leading to his place, and not mindful of an approaching freight train, which followed the 11:20 train, he was struck and no doubt instantly killed, as the frontal bone of his head was crushed in, several wounds were on other portions of his head, and his left leg above the joint was broken. The body of the dead man was not found until yesterday morning at 7 oclock, when Gibson Speraw, foreman of repairs on the Valley road came walking along the track. He at once reported the fact to Elmer A. Henry, operator at the Annville depot. They both visited the place and found the body lying alongside of the railroad, near the freight depot, with life extinct, and a small pass book at the side of the man contained the name of John H. Meyer. Mr. Henry at once telegraphed to Sinking Springs and asked the conductor of No. 8, due at Annville at 11:20 p.m., whether Mr. Meyer had been on that train, to which he replied that he had been and got off at Annville all right. Coroner Ebright was notified of the accident and impanelled a jury and on hearing all the evidence attainable reported as follows: (That the said John H. Meyer came to his death on Saturday night, the 10th. day of February, at about midnight, on the Lebanon Valley railroad, at Annville, about 500 yards east of the depot. According to the evidence the said John H. Meyer was struck by a moving train which caused his death. The said Meyer, by all appearances, came to his death by his own negligence.) The deceased was aged about 42 years and leaves a wife and four children to mourn his death. He was the only son of Rev. John Meyer, of Annville. Interment will take place in the Mt. Annville Cemetery.

Lebanon Semi-Weekly News Obits of:, 14 Oct 1918.... Dr. I. K. Urich, of Annville, Representative of Lebanon County in the State Legislature for two terms, and candidate for re-election at the coming November election, died this morning at his home at 1:05 o'clock. He was suddenly taken sick on Wednesday last. He had suffered from a cough and cold about two weeks previously but gave little heed to it, as the malady seemed to be of little consequences. On Wednesday, however, the coughing became greatly aggravated, and, as he was a man of exceptional avoirdupois, his heart suffered from the first. The malady quickly developed into bronchial pneumonia, but the attending physicians fortified themselves with every known heart stimulant, mechanical and otherwise, and it hoped the patient could be pulled through. On Sunday, however, the patient sank rapidly, and in the afternoon an automobile was sent to the Lebanon Sanatorium for a pulmotor. It was rushed to the bedside with all the speed a modern high-powered automobile can command and it was used by physicians who were at the bedside since Saturday evening without intermission, but all of the Heroic measures adopted failed in their purpose, and the patient quietly to his eternal rest at the hour stated this morning. Dr. Isaac Kalbach Urich was born at Myerstown, the son of Daniel and Mary (Kalbach) Urich, on May 3, 1863 and was therefore in the 56th year of his age. He was a scion of one of the oldest families in that region, his ancestors having been prominent in that locality for many years. He attended the public schools in Myerstown until he was old enough to enter the Palatinate Institute (now Albright College) from which institution he was graduated in 1879. He undertook the reading of medicine with his brother, Dr. Thomas Urich, Annville, the same year, and in 1880 went to Philadelphia, where he took a course at the Jefferson Medical College from which he graduated in 1882. He was licensed April 2, 1883, and immediately started in the practice of medicine in Annville, and continued there ever since. He was held in highest regard as a medical man of skill and ability, and he enjoyed a very extensive practice not only in Annville, and the surrounding countryside, but in the city of Lebanon as well. Dr. Urich was married on June 1, 1891, to Miss Elizabeth Kreider Mark, who with a daughter, Miss Mary Josephine Urich, survives him. Of a very large family, but two brothers survive, Adam Urich, the oldest, who resided with Dr. Urich, and Franklin K. Urich, of Connorsville, Indiana. The deceased was a member of the Lutheran church, the Lebanon County Medical Society, the American Medical Association, and the Pennsylvania Medical Society. In his broad views on the educational question his fellow citizens recognized his great ability as a school director and re-elected him year after year for 20 years. This is a record few men can equal anywhere. Besides his attainments in the medical profession, he was also a very astute businessman. He was secretary and treasurer of Calcite Stone Quarry Company, at West Myerstown, of which Ray Sherman is the President and the other principal owner. Dr. Urich had been in direct charge of the property ever since It was purchased by the company, and under his direction it became a good paying proposition. Dr. Urich was intensely popular throughout the city and county and four years ago when a candidate for the House of Representatives was looked for, he was chosen. He was re-elected two years ago, and was re-nominated for the same position last spring. There was little opposition against him and his re-election for the third term was practically assured when his career was ruthlessly cut short. His death brought sorrow to a large circle of friends. His ever cheerful disposition made him a favored party in any group of friends, and at Harrisburg he was held in greatest esteem by his fellow members of the House of Representatives and others who knew him. Arrangements for the funeral were not as yet announced. Interment in the Mt. Annville Cemetery.

Lebanon Daily News Obits 0f: 6 Apr. 1978.... Walter C. Graeff, a longtime local attorney and businessman, died Wednesday evening at his home, 1308 Elm St., following a lengthy illness. He was 64. Graeff's many associations and activities included that of city solicitor, a position he held with distinction. One member of the legal fraternity today praised Graeff as one of the best solicitors in the city's history and one who was an expert on the Third Class City Code. He was also the county's original public defender. He was named to that post shortly after the municipal building was occupied in 1962.

Graeff was admitted to practice here on Nov. 13, 1939 and continued in practice until 1971. Since the latter date he was. employed by Pennsylvania as an assistant attorney general. His father, Walter C; Graeff Sr., was also an attorney and is remembered as one of the most respected members of the bar association. For many years Graeff operated the Hobby House here. During the early fifties he was also a developer and builder and his efforts contributed to the housing growth in the southwest section of the city. At one time he also owned the Maple Leaf apartment house at Eighth and Maple streets, a structure that many years ago housed the Miller Organ factory. A native of Lebanon, the son of the late Walter and Elizabeth Smith Graeff, he graduated from Mora vian College and Dickinson Law School. His legal practice included the solicitorship for the. Lebanon Parking Authority. He was a navy veteran of World War II and a member of the Moravian Church, the Elks, VFW, Mt. Lebanon Masonic Lodge No. 226, and the Lebanon County Bar Association . Surviving is his widow, the former Frances Hoefling, and one son, Rodney, Mt. Gretna, and four daughters, Cindy, at home; Barbara, wife of Robert Parr, Mt.
