|John Arthur Glick
|John Arthur, son of Wm. H. and Elizabeth Glick, was born near Olin, Iowa, July 27, 1868, and died April 13, 1921, aged 52 years, 2 months and 17 days.
He spent his boyhood on the home farm, and learned the habits of industry and frugality.
On the 11th. day of February, 1891, he was united in marriage with Miss Minnie (Rebecca Ann) Glenn, and the first few years of their wedded life they spent on the farm. Later he formed a co-partnership with S. W. Flaharty, in the mercantile business and remained a member of the firm for fifteen years.
It was during that time that death claimed the wife of his youth, July 30, 1912. Their union was never blessed with children, and the deceased has passed the lonesome years since the death of his wife in various lines of industry. Since the death of his father on December 23, of last year, he has paid devoted attention to his aged mother.
Seemingly he was in usual health until about two weeks ago, when he contracted a heavy cold, resulting in pneumonia on the 4th. of April, which proved more than his constituion could stand, and death claimed him at 1:30 o�clock, Tuesday night, when he went peacefully to sleep.
The deceased was a faithful member of Meridian Lodge No. 245, Knights of Pythias, and the presence of the members of that order today, marks the esteem in which he was held.
He leaves to mourn his going away, his aged mother, one sister, Mrs. Dora Freeman, of Anamosa, and one brother, Harry, and many other relatives, and a host of friends who have known him all his life.
The funeral services were held at the M. E. church last Friday afternoon, conducted by Rev. James Baliz, assisted by Rev. C. C. Diliavou. About thirty members of Meridian Lodge No. 245, K. of P. attended the service in a body, and on account of the bad weather, the burial service was rendered at the church instead of at the cemetery. The remains were then taken to the Olin cemetery for interment.
