No obituary has been found for Edwin McKee so I have written my own:
Edwin McKee, of 105 Parkwood Drive, died 27 January 1925 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. He was born 13 Oct 1849 in Montgomery County, Ohio to John H. and Amelia (Ramby) McKee. Edwin married Anna Irwin on 11 April 1878 at the German Baptist Church in Madison Township. Although he had retired in recent years, Edwin worked for more than thirty years as a house painter in Dayton.
Edwin was preceded in death by his parents, a sister and several half-siblings. He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Lorena McKee of Dayton and Grace (Walter) Bell of Dayton, and a brother, John Henry McKee of Dayton.
Whitmer Bros. is responsible for the arrangements. Burial will take place at Woodland Cemetery on 30 January.
Edwin’s wife Anna had an obituary published in the Dayton Daily Journal on 31 Dec 1935, pg. 8, however I found it to be lacking in some essential details. I thought this would be a good opportunity to try something new and expand on her obituary.
