|Samuel Arthur Glick
|Samuel A. Glick was fatally injured by a cave-in at a gravel pit on the W. C. Peck farm two and one-half miles southeast of Olin, about 7:30 a.m., Saturday. His neck was broken and chest crushed. He died on arrival in a local doctor's office. He and another Olin youth, Raymond Sherman, also injured in the accident were members of a civil works administration crew who were taking out gravel for the surfacing of the Newport road.
A lifetime resident of the Olin community, Arthur was the youngest son of Samuel and Nancy Ann Glick. He was born November 2, 1886, at the family home four miles southeast of Olin, and passed away Saturday morning, December 23rd. from the results of the tragic accident.
He was only a little child when his mother died, thus having never known a mother's love. In l911 he, with his father and older sister, Irene, moved to Olin and has since resided here. His education was received at the home rural school, and at the Olin public school.
On April 5, 1916, Arthur Glick was married to Elizabeth McDonald. Two children came to his home: Stewart, who passed away May 1, 1930, and Jean, still at home.
Art Glick, as he was familiarly known, was always happy in lending a helping hand to a friend or neighbor and ever hospitable and generous. A great lover of his home, a loyal and loving husband, a kind and indulgent father, whose children's interest were his own interest, were traits of character obvious to those who knew him.
He was a member of Ancient, Landmark Lodge No. 200 A. F. & M. and was a past master. He was also a member of Hiawatha chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star, and was the newly elected worthy patron of that organization.
Those who are left to mourn besides the widow and daughter, Jean, are one brother, Don L. Glick of Olin and two sisters, Mrs. Effie Burns of Van Horne, and Mrs. Mable Moreland of this place. Also the nephews and nieces and many kind friends who sympathize with those whose loss is greatest.
Funeral services were held at the United Brethren church, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Lloyd Dutro officiated.
