Vern Julius, 61, Dies After Central Avenue Car Crash
An Estherville man died and an Estherville woman is in critical condition following a head-on collision yesterday at 9:34 p.m. on Central Avenue at the intersection of Third Street.

Vern S. Julius, 61, died en route to Holy Family Hospital, presumably from chest injuries. Mrs. Stanley (Nettie Veronica) Nicol, 49, is in critical condition with undetermined internal injuries, severe facial lacerations, a broken jaw, fractured ribs and multiple other fractures. She is also suffering from shock, according to the attending physician.

Both were alone in their cars when the crash occurred.

The Julius car was traveling east on Central Avenue in the inside traffic lane, and the Nicol car was going west on the left side of the center lane. The point of impact was 28 feet from the north curb, according to the police report.

Charges will be filed against Mrs. Nicol, according to city police.

Vern S. Julius was born in Buffalo Center [according to IA birth index, Kossuth Co.] June 2, 1904, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Julius. He received his education in Kossuth County schools.

He moved with his parents to a farm on the north edge of Gruver and farmed with his father for several years.

April 13, 194-, he was married to Edna Grems in Estherville. They farmed near Estherville until 1957, when they moved to town.

Mr. Julius had been a custodian in the Estherville schools for the past eight years.

He is survived by his wife and daughters, Mrs. Paul (Shirley) Moffitt of Estherville and Mrs. John (Maxine) Bacon of Fort Hood, Tex., and two granddaughters.

Mr. Julius was preceded in death by his parents.

Funeral services are tentatively scheduled for Thursday at – p.m., Reese Funeral Home, Estherville. (Estherville Daily News, Estherville, IA, January 10, 1966)

Mr. and Mrs. Merle Grems returned home Monday from Rochester, Minn., where they had gone to take Mrs. Grems’ parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Rosburg, who are staying there while Mrs. Rosburg is at the Mayo Clinic. The Grems were called back to Estherville by the death of Grems’ brother-in-law, Vern Julius, who was killed Sunday night in an auto accident. Arriving yesterday at the Julius hoe were Mr. and Mrs. John Bacon and daughter of Fort Hood, Tex. Mrs. Bacon is the former Maxine Julius, daughter of Mrs. Vern Julius and the late Mr. Julius.
