Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business. All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

HEROIC NURSE CALLED BEYOND
In 1914 she entered the training school for nurses, connected with Roosevelt Hospital and had been but a few moths graduated when the United States entered the World War. She immediately volunteered in the Roosevelt-Mackey Unit, which sailed for France one week after General Pershing. After several months service at U. S. Official Headquarters at Chaumont, she was, at her request transferred to Evacuation Hospital No. 4. She served in the following engagements; Champagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, Oise-Marne, St. Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne and Defensive Sector. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre with gift star by the French Government for her bravery, devotion to duty and heroic conduct when Evacuation Hospital No. 4 was shelled by the enemy on November 2, 1918. It was overwork and exposure at this time that caused the illness that later cost her life. After the Armistice Miss Nye spent several months on duty at Coblenz, Germany. She is survived by her father, Dr. Orrin S.; one brother Delos F. Nye of Rio Vista, Calif., and two sisters, Margaret, now Mrs. James Paul of Spokane, Wash., and a half sister Frances Carolyn Nye of Rutland, Pa., all of whom were with her at her death.

NYE, SYLVENE (SRGP 18472)
BRAVE WAR NURSE MADE SUPREME SACRIFICE—Sylvone Nye Answers Final Call—Overwork and Exposure While in Europe With Colors Caused Death of Heroic Nurse
Sylvene Ahaya Nye, daughter of Orrin S. Nye and the late Caroline Drake Nye, passed from this life to life eternal at her father’s home at Rutland, Penna., on July 3, 1924. She was born in Columbus Ohio, soon after her father, located in Rutland, where Sylvene’s childhood and early girlhood were passed. She graduated from Mansfield State Normal School and for several years engaged in teaching in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 1914, she entered the training school for nurses connected with Roosevelt Hospital and had been but a few months graduated when the United States entered the World War. She immediately volunteered in the Roosevelt-Mackey Unit, which sailed for France one week after General Pershing. After several months’ service at U. S. Official Headquarters at Chauniont, she was, at her request transferred to Evacuation Hospital No. 4. She served in the following engagements: Champagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, Olse-Marne, St. Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne and Defensive Sector. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre with gilt star by the French government for her bravery, devotion to duty and heroic conduct when Evacuation Hospital No. 4 was shelled by the enemy on November 2, 1918. It was overwork and exposure at this time that caused the illness that later cost her life. After the Armistice Miss Nye spent several months on duty at Coblenz, Germany. She is survived by her father, Dr. Orrin S. Nye; one brother, Delos F. Nye, of Rio Vista, California, sister, Margaret, now Mrs. James Paul, of Spokane, Wash., and a half-sister, Frances Carolyn Nye, of Rutland, Penna., all of whom were able to be with her for several weeks preceding her demise. A splendid, noble, useful woman is gone. During long months of helplessness no murmur of complaint passed her lips; her cheerfulness, her patience, her courage were marvelous and evoked the admiration and love of all. Just a few moments before the end, she turned to her little sister Carolyn, and said, “Don’t be afraid, Honey, I am just napping.” To her classmates and the nurses of Roosevelt Hospital she was greatly attached. Any story of her life would be incomplete without mention of their loyalty and affectionate devotion to her. Their many acts and deeds of kindness gave her cheer and comfort and did much to help her bear her burden of helplessness. “Sylvene does not fear, Sylvene is a soldier,” said one of her devoted nurse friends, during her illness, and surely no soldier ever met death more bravely than she. One more flower of America’s youth has made the Supreme Sacrifice.

JUDSON M. OLDROYD (SRGP 14746)
Judson Myron Oldroyd, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Oldroyd, of Rutland, born Dec. 22, 1909, diedat the Blossburg hospital November 25, 1924, after a lingering illness of nearly a year’s duration of kidney trouble. He was confined to his bed nearly two months in the hospital and all that medical skill and tender care could do was done to prolong his earthly stay, but to no avail; the gates to the portal were opened and he passed into eternal sleep where no more pain or sorrow entereth. Judson was an exceptionally bright boy. He bore his burden of sickness uncomplainingly, always greeting his many friends who came to see him with a cheerful word and pleasant smile, being a comfort to those who so tenderly watched over him. Although he had been seriously ill for a long time, at the time of his death he was thought by his friends to be improving in health and his sudden passing was a great shock to all, for only that day he had written his mother, who had been with him nearly all the time of his stay at the hospital, that he was feeling good, and was looking forward to a visit from them on Thanksgiving Day, with orders for some added luxuries for his dinner. It was a great trial during his sickness to be unable to attend school and Sunday School, in both of which he took an interest. He will be greatly missed, not only in the home where no one can fill the empty place in the hearts of those bereaved of a loving son and brother, but in the community and school where he counted his friends in large numbers. The funeral, which was largely attended, was held at the family home Saturday afternoon, November 29, the Reverend Crippen officiating; interment taking place in Watson Cemetery at Roseville. The many and beautiful floral offerings spoke of the high esteem in which he was held. The boys bearing the remains to its last resting place were chosen from among his schoolmates. They were Raymond Van Zile, Lee McClure, James Forest, Cecil Crippen, Rexford Crippen, Francis Argetsinger. Besides his parents, he leaves to mourn, one sister, Dorothy.
No! No! not dead, just laid away from sight,
To slumber undisturbed through one long night;
Instead of many brief ones such as fall
In swift recurrence o’er us one and all.
Since now we wake when night has died,
May we not hope to see them face to face,
Who in the churchyard have their resting place?
Believe the Master; o’er and o’er He said—
"Why weepest thou? Only asleep—not dead—not dead."
