GLENN SULLIVAN

A SHADOW OF DEEP SORROW WAS CAST OVER THE COMMUNITY MONDAY EVENING WHEN IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT GLENN SULLIVAN HAD DIED SUDDENLY AT HIS HOME IN EAST MOUNT AYR.  MR. SULLIVAN HAD BEEN IN HIS USUAL HEALTH UP UNTIL SATURDAY WHEN HE CONTRACTED A SEVERE COLD ACCOMPANIED BY SORE THROAT. A PHYSICIAN WAS CALLED MONDAY, BUT HIS CONDITION WAS NOT CONSIDERED CRITICAL UNTIL MONDAY EVENING ABOUT 8:30 WHEN HE BECAME SUDDENLY WORSE AND IN A FEW MOMENTS LIFE HAD PASSED OUT. URAEMIC POISONING WAS ASSIGNED AS THE CAUSE OF DEATH. ARRANGEMENTS WERE MADE TO HOLD THE FUNERAL FROM THE HOME THIS AFTERNOON AT 2:30 O’CLOCK, BUT ON ACCOUNT OF THE NATURE OF THE ILLNESS AND SYMPTOMS THAT ACCOMPANY SCARLET FEVER, HEALTH OFFICERS WISELY EXERCISED PRECAUTION AND THE HOME WAS PLACE UNDER QUARANTINE. SERVICES WERE HELD AT THE GRAVE IN ROSE HILL CEMETERY, CONDUCTED BY REV. FRANK BEAN.

MR. SULLIVAN WAS ONE OF THE PROMISING YOUNG MEN OF MOUNT AYR; MODEST IN DISPOSITION AND PLEASING IN MANNER, HE COMMANDED THE RESPECT OF THE PEOPLE OF THE COMMUNITY WHERE HIS LIFE HAS BEEN SPENT. HE WAS THE ONLY SON OF MR. AND MRS. DOUG SULLIVAN AND WAS ASSOCIATED WITH HIS FATHER IN THE AUTOMOBILE BUSINESS. IN HIS DEATH THE COMMUNITY LOSES ONE OF ITS BEST YOUNG MEN.

GLENN SULLIVAN WAS BORN AT PLYMOUTH, HANCOCK COUNTY, IOWA, AND WHEN EIGHT YEARS OF AGE HE CAME WITH HIS PARENTS TO MOUNT AYR. ON THANKSGIVING DAY 1915, HE WAS UNITED IN MARRIAGE WITH MISS ELNORA THOMPSON. HE IS SURVIVED BY HIS WIFE, FATHER AND MOTHER AND ONE SISTER MRS. HAROLD MURPHY OF WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP.
