Glen A. Foster

unknown undated newspaper clipping from grandma grace's book
(I don't know how or if he is related...deb)

On Saturday July 28 1934 at 8:30a.m. Glen A. son of Anderson and Etta Foster, aged 23 years, 2 months, and 7 days, was called home.
On Monday preceeding his death, Glen came home, sick with tonsilitis, developing into pneumonia and complications.
All was done that loving hands and physical aid could do, but God in his mercy said, "You have suffered enough, Glen, come Home," and he left us.
Glen was a loving son and brother and always had a smile and a greeting for everyone.
Near the end, he asked Brother Parr to lead in a word of prayer.
He leaves to mourn his departure, a loving mother and father, two sisters, Hazel and Blanche, two brothers Ward and Carl, an aged grandfather, three nieces and one nephew. Also a very dear friend, Miss Ruth White, who was away at the time of his sickness and death. Two sisters, Opal and Alma preceded him in death.
A loved one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home
Which can never be filled.
Pallbearers: Dale White, Basil Shepard, Ray Shepard, Cloyd Nickerson, Floyd Robertson, Harl Neff.
Flower girls: Christina Davisson, Alice Hobbs, Christine Mitchell, Lucille Terry, Lyda Mae Planck, Erma Lee Dale.
Funeral services and interment at Christian Union, conducted by the Rev. Parr.
We wish to thank the kind neighbors and friends who were so kind and helpful during the sickness and death of our loved one.
Mr and Mrs A.R. Foster
Mr and MRs F.R. Wiley
Mr and MRs Everett Shoemaker
Mr and Mrs Ward Foster
Mr and Mrs Carl Foster

Mr Foster had been ill for six days. He was unmarried.
