I went to the Mancelona Library tonight and, much to my surprise, they had a card file with a lot of obituaries from the Antrim Co. News. Mrs. Viola Troyer was one.

Possibly it is an oversight but, it doesn't mention a Warren C. It does, however, mention a Ward Troyer that was killed during World War II.

I will type that obituary in for you.

Antrim County News, July 14, 1977

Viola Troyer
Mancelona - Viola N. Troyer, Rt. 1, Mancelona, died Tuesday, July 12, at Munson Medical Center, Mancelona, after an extended illness.
Mrs. Troyer was born Nov. 7, 1888 at Paw Paw to Isaac and Marian (Nixon) Wilcox. She was married to Norman J. Troyer July 16, 1918 at Bellaire. Mr. Troyer preceded her in death in 1959. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

Surviving are two sons, R. Wayne Troyer and Clyde Troyer of Mancelona; two daughters, Mrs. Dorval (Anna) Simpson of Mancelona and Mrs. Ethel Batterbee of Lowell; 18 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. A son, Ward Troyer, was killed in World War II.
