Rolle Howe takes own life today
Rolle Howe,78 year old former resident of the Chapel Hill community near the Lawrence-Monroe county line, died instantly at 5:30 a.m. today as a result of a self inflicted shotgun wound.
Informed sources revealed that the victim had taken his life because of worry about his ill health. At the time of his death, Mr. Howe was residing with his son, Charles, 1545 Maxwell street, Bloomington, where he had lived for the past 7 years.
Mr. Howe had apparently placed the butt of his 12 gauge shotgun against the wall in the corner of the kitchen of the home, leaned forward against the gun barrel, and pushed the trigger with a wooden stick about two feet long. The wound occured in the region of the heart.
It was also revealed that Mr. Howe, a retired farmer, had whittled the stick two or three days ago and had kept it under his pillow since that time, but none of the other members of the household had questioned him as to why the stick was there.
Mr. Howe's son Charles reported that he heard his father prowling around the house shortly before 5:30 this morning, and asked what he was doing up at that hour, but his father did not answer. Thinking it unimportant at the time, Charles went back to sleep. He was awakened by a muffled shot at 5:30, and upon entering the kitchen, he found his father lying on the floor with the shotgun at his side.
It was also reported that Mr. Howe had kept his shotgun loaded at all times, and that he had apparently been getting the gun when his son first heard him this morning.
Bloomington city officials were notified of the suicide, after which the Howe family called Jones Funeral Home in Heltonville.
Mr. Howe was born in Monroe County to Lebert and Polly Ann Kinser Howe, and in early life he was married to Ellen Clark, who preceeded him in death in 1933.
Survivors include three sons- Roy of Norman, Lebert of Heltonville, and Charles of Bloomington; eight daughters - Mrs. Helen Vaught and Mrs. Verna Brinegar, both of Stanford, Indiana, Mrs. Hattie Kinser of Franklin, Mrs. Delphia May of Harrodsburg, Mrs. Goldie Gillespie and Mrs. Ruby Basil, both of Indianapolis, Mrs. Sylvia Smith of Heltonville,and Mrs. Mildred Sears of Bedford; 23 grandchildren; 30 Great grandchildren; two half brothers - Perry and Lee Deckard, both of Heltonville, R.R. 1, and one half sister, Mrs. George Sipes of Heltonville.
