Obituary of George G. Whitney
Kendall County News, Sep 16, 1944
Old time residents of Plano will remember George Whitney who, with parents, brothers and sisters moved from Plano about the time the William Deering Harvester Co. left Plano to locate in Chicago. While residents of Plano, this family lived in what is known as the Jens Jorgensen home, now occupied by Mr. & Mrs. George Anderson. The Whitneys were noted for their patriotism as Americans, emphatically displaying a flag on their flag pole every holiday, which in by-gone days was something of note. The younger ones of this family worked for many years at the Deering Harvester Company plant in Chicago and some of them were pensioned by that company. George was one of the younger sons and died Saturday at his home in Chicago. He was brought here Monday morning for burial in the family lot. The body was accompanied by his only sister, Mrs. Florence Daley and a large number of relatives. Mrs. Daley is now 88 years old and is quite spry for her age. She is the only one of the family now living. Rev. Harold George of the Plano Methodist church said a few words and offered prayer at the grave.
