Wendell Stull Dies Suddenly
Wendell Stull died very suddenly Monday forenoon from a heart attack. He had been residing at the home of Mrs. W. H. Kinsinger in Grundy Center. He was on his way to the Cone Body Shop, where he had been spending much of his time. He was stricken on the sidewalk in front of Mrs. Mabel Morrison's house, and he died almost instantly. He was 91 year old. He had been in good health up to the time he was stricken. He had been still able to drive a car and a few weeks ago he told a reporter at The Grundy Register office that he had been driving a car over 50 years and had never received a ticket.
The body was taken to the Ferree funeral home where funeral arrangements were made. Services were at the Methodist church at Beaman Wednesday afternoon. Burial was in Oakland cemetery.
