The departed WILLIAM CHAPPELL was born March 29, 1873 at Peotone, Illinois. He was the son of William Chappell and his wife Sarah Elizabeth Stray. When he was six years old the family moved to the farm east of Grant Park, and the homestead rites were held preceding the services held in the church, man's religious home. Mr. Chappell breathed his last at 7:00 on the morning of June 27, at the age of 71 years, 2 months, and 28 days. The deceased had been seriously ill for nigh unto a year. On September 16, 1902 he was married to Edna V Hurley of Momence. Two children were born to this union, Ione Reaman, and Myron of Camp Chaffee, Arkansas. These two individuals have lost a god father. Two grandchildren, Anita and Myron will endearingly remember him as a grandfather. Of his parental home, 2 sisters survive, Sarah Ferris of Grant Park, and Charlotte (Lottie) Smith of New Orleans, Lousiana. He was preceded in death by two brothers, Joseph and Harry, who died enroute to America, a sister Anna who died in Chicago, and brothers Charles formerly of Momence and George late of Grant Park, there remain also four nephews. The departed was formerly a member of the first Baptist Church of Momence. After the death of his wife, the family transferred their membership to the Sherburnville Christian Church. He served on the official board of this church for many years. He was also a member of the local school board for for fifteen years.  He was active in community projects and community affairs. He was a christian gentleman and a trustworthy friend. Since the death of his wife in 1921 he had made his home with his daughter, except a period of three years he spent with his sister, Mrs. Ferris, and the final year of his earthly life spent in hospitals and in a nursing home in Kankakee where he passed on. Job in chapter 7 verse 16 of His book writes, "I would not live always". Like this sufferer of ancient time, our departed relative and friend had a wish and a strong desire to depart this life. He was homesick for heaven.  The poet has expressed his longingly beautifully; "who, who would live always, away from his God?  Away from yon heaven, that blissful abode, where the rivers of pleasure flow over the bright plains, and the noon time of glory eternally reigns.  Where the saints of all ages in harmony meet, their saviors and brethren transported to greet:   while the songs of salvation unceasingly roll, and the smile of the Lord is the feast of the soul". Funeral services were held for William Chappell from the Ernest Reaman home at 1:45PM on Thursday, June 29, 1944.
