Beloved Resident Passes Beyond
Myron B. Brown, 85, formerly of Conrad, and the Beaman and Gladbrook communities, died at the Deaconess early last Wednesday morning after an illness of several months. Mr. Brown became ill in the summer, and never regained his health.
Born March 20, 1864 in Wisconsin, son of O. S. and Eliza Burgess Brown, he came to Gladbrook with his family at the age of 4, in a covered wagon. He had the distinction of being the oldest pioneer resident of the Gladbrook community. Before moving here in 1935, he farmed in both the Beaman and Gladbrook communities.
Mr. Brown remained actively engaged in farming until stricken by his recent illness. He looked many years below his 85 years. He was a friend to all, cheerful in spite of many difficulties, and bore his load bravely until his death.
Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Charlotte Brown, a patient at the Deaconess for the past 7 years; 4 nieces and nephews, among them, Olin Brown of Beaman.
Funeral services were held at the Estel funeral home in Marshalltown on Friday at 2 p.m., in charge of the Rev. W. G. Warren, Conrad Methodist pastor. Burial was at Riverside cemetery in M’town.
Pall bearers were Chas. Long, M. J. Corwin, James Stackhouse, Herman Haws, Walter Kaufmann and Eldon Walter.
The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved.
