July 26, 1956

Page 2. Obituary - Ernest Lee Gore, son of Holbert and Emma Gore was born February 24, 1888, at Syracuse, Nebraska. He departed this life July 19, 1956, at his home near Webb after an illness of many months.

He came to Oklahoma with his parents from Iowa in 1901, and settled in Dewey county near Webb.

The remainder of his life was spent in the Webb, Valley Center and Lenora communities.

In 1916 he was united in marriage to Mae Reese. To this union seven children were born: Faye Muno of Webb, Oklahoma; Dorothy Badley of Shidler, Oklahoma, Jean Riselev and Shirley Clark of Woodward, Oklahoma, John of Oklahoma City and George and Jackie of the home.

Ernie, as he was known by every one was a devoted husband and father and a friend to all. Ever ready to lend a helping hand, give a smile and offer a word of cheer, all in the spirit of a true pioneer.
He leaves to mourn his passing: his wife, Mae, seven children, fourteen grandchildren and many other relatives and friends.
