—Excerpt from the Red Oak Express, January 19, 1931
Charles A. Bisbee, 61, of the Bisbee & Horne Barber shop, died yesterday morning at 5:45 o'clock in his room, 609 Third Street, following a heart attack. Mr. Bisbee had suffered from heart trouble for some time and had not been in good health, following injuries he had received in an auto accident a number of months ago.
Funeral services were held this afternoon at the Boileau & Thomas chapel with Rev. F. W. Simpson, of the Methodist church, in charge of the service. Pallbearers were members of the Elks and the Elks ritual was given at the grave. Burial was made in Evergreen cemetery (Red Oak, IA) beside the body of his sister, the late Mrs. Henry T. Thomas.
Charles A. Bisbee was born July 7, 1869 at Macedonia, Iowa. He was a son of Elijah and Hannah P. Bisbee. He attended school at Macedonia and later attended Simpson college at Indianola. In 1899 he was united in marriage to Miss Josephine Fayman of Kansas City, who died in 1911. For a number of years Mr. Bisbee made his home in Kansas City. After her death he returned to this community where his relatives resided.
Mr. Bisbee joined the Methodist church at Macedonia in his youth and when he left his home he took his church letter with him, but did not place it in any other church. He was a member of the B.P.O.E. lodge and was a loyal worker in the Elks.
Mr. Bisbee is survived by one brother, A. C. Bisbee, of Macedonia, IA., five nephews and seven nieces, his aged mother-in-law of Kansas City who is 89, and his brother-in-law, Henry T. Thomas, of the Boileau & Thomas Furniture and Undertaking company, besides a host of friends.
