Last Rites Held for N. Littlepage Fri. Funeral services were held Friday, June 23, at 2:00 o'clock for
Mr. Noell Littlepage, resident of Dublin for 27 years. Mr. Littlepage suffered a heart attack on the
night of May 17 and was confined to his bed until his death. He spent three weeks in the local
hospital where he was slowly imroved (sic). The remaining two weeks he was at home, apparently
recovering. On the night of June 21, he suffered another attack and was taken back to the hospital
where he passed away at 9:40 p.m. His survivors include his widow and four children: Earl and
Bernice Littlepage, and Mrs. Joe Little Jr. of Dublin, and Charles Littlepage of Baytown; three
grandchildren: George Ann Beever of Dublin, and Patsy and Dean Littlepage of Baytown; two
sisters: Mrs. G. L. Wren of Ft. Worth, and Mrs. G. A. Kemper of Pearsall; five brothers: Robert of
Goldthwaite, Arthur of Fort Worth, Elma of Houston, Elmo of Llano, and Lois of Columbus,
Montana. Mr. Littlepage was born in Austin, Texas, December 5, 1884, the oldest son of Mr. and
Mrs. S. C. Littlepage, pioneer settlers of Travis County. His boyhood was spent in Burnett and
Lampassas Counties where his father was in the ranching business. He received his education in the
public school in Lampasas and in Hatchers Private School in Goldthwaite. Before coming to Dublin,
he had engaged in ranching near Ft. Worth and in San Saba County, and had lived three years in
Goldthwaite. He moved to Dublin in June 1923 and since that time owned and operated the
Littlepage Produce Company here. Mr. Littlepage's high standards of honesty and integrity in his
business relations have made him one of the outstanding produce men of this section. His
dependable character traits and pleasant disposition have made and kept for him a host of friends. In
his passing Dublin and the surrounding community has lost a good and trusted citizen. Mr.
Littlepage joined the Baptist Church at the age of twenty-three and has been active in church work
since that time. At present he was a member of the First Baptist Church of this city. Funeral services

Church choir rendered the music with special music by Mrs. Herschel Prindle. Pall bearers were
