|Rebecca Ann (Minnie) Glenn Glick
|Again the silent messenger has visited our town and removed one well known to every man, woman and child—Mrs. J. A. Glick. About two years ago a cancer made its appearance on the person of Mrs. Glick, and on March 1, 1911, it was removed by a surgical operation. For a time it was thought that the cancer would give her no further trouble, but this hope of her friends was never realized, for the past year she has been an invalid and a great sufferer.
During all these months of suffering her husband administered unto her every want and did everything in his power to relieve her suffering. But the skill of the physician with the assistance of trained nurses could not overcome the ravages of this dread disease.
Mrs. Glick was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Glenn, and was blessed with a happy and jovial disposition, and always looked on the bright side of everything, and her smiling face will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Mrs. J. A. Glick was born on the old home farm in Jackson township, January 31, 1865, and died at her home in Olin Iowa, July 30, 1912, lacking but one day of being 47 years and 6 months of age.
She was united in marriage with J. A. Glick, February 10, 1891, and through all these twenty-one years and more, was a true wife and help-mate, sharing the joys and sorrows of life with her husband.
Besides her husband she leaves to mourn her departure, her aged mother, Mr. J. M. Glenn—her father having been called to his reward two years ago—three brothers; J. W. Glenn, of Olin; F. M. Glenn, of Jackson township, and J. C. Glenn of Olin; two sisters, Mrs. Clara Platner, of Jackson township, and Mamie Glenn, of Olin.
She united with the Christian church a number of years ago, and since that time has been a faithful worked in the church and Sunday School. She was also a faithful worked in the Ladies' Aid Society and the Pythian Sisters' lodge.
She was very faithful to the cause of Christ, and especially during revival meetings, when she would attend the prayer meetings and assist in the singing.
The funeral services were held at the Christian church Friday forenoon, conducted by the pastor Rev. Jones, assisted by Rev. Hobson. The body was tenderly laid away in the Olin cemetery.
