Shadle, John

Oregon City Enterprise, Friday, February 23, 1900
The many friends of John Shadle will be pained to learn of the sad accident that befell him last Monday afternoon. While decorating Willamette hall for the reception to be given by Meade W. R. C., he was stricken with apoplexy and fell from a step-ladder to the floor, where he was discovered in an unconscious condition by his wife. He remained in a semi-conscious condition until late Wednesday afternoon, and the attending physicians, Doctors Strickland and Seaman, entertain serious doubts as to his ultimate recovery.

Last Resting Place.
The funeral of John Shadle took place Saturday afternoon and was a very imposing affair. The services were held at the Presbyterian church, Rev. A. J. Montgomery, officiating. The funeral train consisted of a large number of friends, the G. A. R. corps and members of the Woodmen of the World.
Mr. Shadle was a native of Pennsylvania, spending a number of years in Kansas, from which state he moved to Oregon in 1889. He was 54 years of age, and leaves a wife and two children, Katherine and Silas. He was a member of Meade Post G. A. R. and also of the Woodmen of the World I which lodge he carried and insurance of $1,000.

In Memoriam.
To the Commander and members of Meade Post No. 2, G. A. R.
Your committee, appointed to prepare a tribute of respect to the memory of our late comrade, John Shadle, respectfully submit the following:
John Shadle was born in the state of Pennsylvania, in the year 1846, and died at Oregon City, on March 1, 1900. He enlisted in the war for the Union on February 28, 1864, and bore an honorable past in the operations before Petersburg and Richmond, being discharged from the service December 14, 1865. He was mustered into Meade Post on October 3, 1890, and continued an active member of the same until his decease.
We, who survive, desire to record out appreciation of our departed friend, as a good citizen, and a true and faithful comrade, one who served the Post well in the various offices to which he was called, and who was always ready with wise counsel and helping hand to advance the interests of the G. A. R.
To the widow and children of our deceased comrade we extend our heartfelt sympathy.
May we who still remain strive to emulate our departed comrade’s kindness and fidelity to duty, ’till we are called to the great encampment, “when beyond these voices there is peace.”
C. A. Williams, Chairman Com.

Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God in his infinite wisdom to remove from our midst, our friend, John Shadle, a member of Meade Post No. 2, Grand Army of the Republic and the long and intimate relations held with him in our Corps work, make it eminently fitting that we record our appreciation of him. Therefore be it
Resolved, That we express our high appreciation of his patriotism, his upright character and true worth, that we express our sorrow for his loss, and extend to his afflicted wife, daughter and son, our sympathy.
Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be placed on the minutes of this corps, a copy printed in the local papers and also a copy forwarded to the bereaved wife.

Mary E. Stafford, President.
