A.Stockdale Passes Away
Underwent An Operation a Few Days Ago Which Caused His Sudden Death
Well Known Here
Had Been in Poor Health for Years and had No Vitality to Withstand Shock

The community was severely and suddenly shocked last evening when the death of Allen Stockdale was announced on the streets. It was known he had been in a serious condition since the operation at the Coleman hospital on its opening day. He has been ill to some extent for some years past with ulcers of the stomach. It was decided an operation was necessary and Dr. Coleman undertook the difficult operation the day he opened the hospital. It was thought at the start he might recover but day after day it grew more doubtful. Yesterday his brother gave blood for transfusion but Allen’s heart was not strong enough to handle it and it accomplished nothing.

It was not long after the transfusion that he passed away. Mr. Stockdale has resided here for many years and has been engaged in the grain business. He was united in marriage to Marjorie Foshier and to this union there was born one son. For the past three years they have resided on the Foshier farm with Wm. Foshier, Mrs. Stockdale’s father. He was but 36 years old at the time of his death.

Allen Stockdale had friends numbered by his acquaintances. He was of a pleasant disposition regardless of his physical sufferings. He was a member of the local B.P.O.E. and Masonic orders and was quite active in the past. With his friends he was a close, loyal friend and he will be greatly missed by them.

The funeral services will be held from the home of his brother, J. E. Stockdale at three o’clock on Thursday afternoon and the remains will be laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, April 2, 1924)

E. and Lloyd Stockdale and had operated a grain office in the Rhodes block for several years. He was a son-in-law of Wm. Foshier.
