Funeral services were held at St. Agnes Catholic Church at Vermillion Wednesday morning, after which the remains were brought to Montrose and the Rosary was recited at the A. W. Odell funeral home.  Burial was at St. St. Patrick’s Cemetery.



Vermillion, S. D. Rites for D. E. Sullivan, 71, former Vermillion mayor and retired railroad station agent, are scheduled at 9:00 am Wednesday in St. Agnes Catholic church here.  He died suddenly Sunday at home.
