Sunday’s Obituary- Emil C Long; Appanoose County, Iowa

I recently came into a trove of family papers & photos.  Unfortunately, I don't have a clue how many of these people are related, or if they are just people this elderly, childless couple knew throughout their lives.  I will be posting all the unknown connections with the label "Abbott-Cruchelow Papers".

Today's entry is the text of the Memorial Service for Emil C. Long, dated 30th of June 1986.  Earl was born 27 December 1902, married Ava Elizabeth Linch 16 April, 1922 and died the 28th of June 1986.
