Death Calls N.E. Crook
Noah E. Crook, 61, well known in Estherville as a restaurant man and father of Glenn Crook, died suddenly at his home in Leland last night. Mr. Crook had suffered a slight stroke about four weeks ago from which he had seemingly recovered. He had been at his place of business at Leland as usual during the evening and retired at about eleven thirty. His wife had gone to look after their little girl and returned to find that he had passed away.

Mr. Crook was born in Des Moines and had spent most of his life in Iowa. He had been in partnership with his son here for a number of years in the management of Peoples café but bought a place of his own in Leland.

Funeral arrangements await word from relatives and the place of interment will be determined by the wishes and will doubtless be on Friday or Saturday morning. His son Glenn is home on a furlough from officers training school.

There is another son Jack living in California and daughter Ruth Mary with her mother Mrs. Betty Crook at Leland. His first wife Mrs. Eura Crook lives at Santa Barbara, Calif. One sister and 2 brothers are left to mourn his death. They are Albert Crook of Des Moines, John A. Crook of Clinton and Mrs. A.J. Waechler of Boone. Mrs. Henry Crook, a sister-in-law resides at Grinnell. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, October 22, 1922)
