[Feb. 13 & 14] Nora staid constantly & rest [of family] all in often. I was up little while Tues. Feb 13 & went in to see him, & O, how he had failed. He was conscious to the last & passed away at 3 o,clock Wednesday p.m. Feb. 14th. O, how hard it is to know we will never again have our dear father with us, but he wanted to go & made all his funeral arrangements, his songs to be sung, his pall bearers ect.
O, how we shall miss him, he was always so generous, so kind & just always made the best of every thing & we always tho’t [thought] what ever father did was just right.
His life has truly been a most wonderful one & he certainly has always had such high ideals & tried so hard to raise his family right. We certainly have much to be thankful for such a life as he [has] lived, always so truthful & such a good neighbor & his kind deeds shall long remain in the memory of every one who knew him.
It is so hard for mother, but they have had a long life together, with very few separations.

Isaac’s death certificate stated that he died of “marasmus accompanying general arterio sclerosis”. Marasmus is generally known as the gradual wasting away of the body due to severe malnutrition or inadequate absorption of food.
According to Isaac’s wishes, his body was returned to Iowa. The funeral service took place in his Wellman home. Isaac’s obituary was long and descriptive. It appeared on the front page of The Wellman Advance. Isaac was buried in the Taylor Cemetery, just south of town.
