THE LATE C.M. RYMAN DONE PIONEER WORK

Charles M. Ryman was born in Sullivan county, Indiana, on July 29th, 1857. On March 21st, 1889, he was married to Mahala Piety. Soon after their marriage they came to Washington, locating in Klickitat county, where they have lived ever since.

During all of his life he was engaged in the promotion of education, been either engaged as a teacher or as county superintendent of schools. He served Klickitat county as county school superintendent for several terms, the last being completed in September.

His first term as county superintendent was in 1892; second term in 1894; and third term in 1898. After this there was an interval of several terms, when the people again called him.
He joined the Presbyterian church in boyhood and throughout his life took active part in religious work, wherever he was. He served as an elder in the Goldendale Presbyterian church for many years.

He passed away Sunday morning, November 25, 1923, at the age of 66 years, four months, and one day. There remain to mourn his death his beloved wife, Mrs. Mahala Ryman; two daughters, Mabel Ryman and Mrs. Lois Clark; and also one son, Allen M. Ryman.

Funeral services were held at the Goldendale Presbyterian church, on Friday, November 30th, 1923, Rev. T. DeVries, pastor of the Presbyterian church, officiating. After the church services followed interment in the Odd Fellows cemetery, in charge of Alimus Lodge, No. 15, I.O.O.F., of Goldendale. The funeral was very largely attended, taxing the seating capacity of the church, while many had to stand in the vestibule and the outside steps.

The town of Goldendale and Klickitat county, feel the loss of a most worthy man, who has done much of the pioneer work to make this town and county what it is.

The son, Allen M. Ryman, was in the east, in the aviation corps of the United States. He reached Goldendale in time for the funeral of his father, and then returned east. He will endeavor to get released from the service and return home, where he is now needed.

"Local Happenings"

C.M. Ryman, ex-county school superintendent, died at his home in this city at two o'clock Sunday morning, Nov. 25, following a comparatively short illness. He was 66 years of age at the time of his death, and had made his home in Klickitat county for something like 34 years, during all of which time he was engaged in teaching school, except when he was county superintendent. This office he filled for eight years, his last term having expired last September. He was teaching school at Klickitat when taken ill. In order to give his son, Allen, who is in the U.S. army, and stationed in Michigan, time to get here for the funeral, the services were withheld and will take place tomorrow in the Presbyterian church, at 1:30 p.m.. Rev. T. De Vries, pastor of the church, will officiate. Interment will follow in the I.O.O.F. cemetery. The services at the grave will be in charge of Alimus Lodge No. 15, I.O.O.F., of which Mr. Ryman was a member. An obituary will follow.
