Note: Ernest M. Irish 1866-1949 <u>Jon Saunders </u> - Jan 12, 2013 "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 146, No 13, p 222, Mar. 28, 1949. Ernest M. Irish was born in Farina, Ill., November 13, 1866. The family later moved to Hammond, La. He went to Rhode Island early in life, where he lived with relatives in Westerly. Here he worked as a mechanic in the factory of the Cottrell Press Company for a time, later learning the trade of carpenter and lumberman which he followed for many years. He died at the Boulder, Colorado Sanitarium, February 2, 1949, after several months of slowly failing health, quietly falling asleep without great suffering. The family moved to Boulder, Colo., in 1910, where they resided at the time of his death. He was united in marriage with Miss Maude Saunders in Hammond, La., on New Year's Eve, 1892, who survives him, as well as a son, Glenn Irish of Denver, Colo., and a sister, Mrs. Bertha Porter of Corpus Christi, Tex. For many years Mr. Irish served the Boulder Seventh Day Baptist Church as one of its deacons, and as long as health would permit was faithful in his duties as a deacon and member of the church. He was a quiet man, but those who knew him best speak of him as truly Christian both in his relationships to the Church and the community. Farewell services were held in the Howe Mortuary in Boulder, Friday, February 4, 1949, conducted by his pastor, Rev. Erlo E. Sutton, and he was laid to rest in Mountain View Memorial Park, Boulder.
