||Death of Wayne Glanz
Wayne Glanz, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Glanz, Jr., was born July 10, 1919, on the Josephine Porter place, Union township, Delaware county, Iowa, and died in the hospital at Monticello, Iowa, Saturday morning,
April 7, at the age of eight years, eight months and twenty-eight days. These few years of life were all spent on this farm in the Buck Creek community. As soon as he was of school age he entered the school there and quickly won the affection of his teachers by his lovable ways and by efficiency in his school work His playmates will remember him as one of the boys whom they liked.
He had enjoyed good health with the exception of a short time two years ago when he suffered somewhat with influenza and its after effects. On Monday, April 2, he seemed to be in usual health and attended school, but that evening was taken sick and gradually became worse until he passed away Saturday morning.
He leaves to mourn his loss his father and mother, his grandparents on both his father's and mother's side, his nine cousins, several uncles and aunts, his teachers and playmates. Mrs. Glanz will be remembered as Miss Margaret Lang before her marriage. She is a sister of Mrs. Anna Ehrisman of Monticello.
He was a boy who responded to the love of his father and mother and made them his best chums. He was a lover of flowers and had bought seeds for his flower garden this year. He was creative in his play, always making some new toy or planning some new game. He was baptized when a baby by the Rev. W. H. Ensign of Hopkinton. He will be sadly missed by his father and mother, his grandparents and by all those who knew him.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, Rev. Virgil C. Welch, pastor at Buck Creek, officiating with a short service at the home, and Rev. E. W. Roberts, officiating at the service held in the Presbyterian church in Hopkinton. The Misses Arlene Ortmann, Eleanor MacDonald, Laura Wheeless and Birnadine Brock sang "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," "Saved by His Grace," and "Beautiful Garden of Prayer." The four small cousins Raymond, Claire and Charles Glanz and Junior Ketelsen acted as pall bearers. Four of the third grade boys of the Buck Creek school acted as pallbearers at the home.
