World War Veteran Dies
Clyde Agy died Wednesday afternoon of last week at the home of his mother, Mrs. Julia Agy, in Reinbeck, after an illness of several months with Bright's disease. Hardening of the arteries, bringing heart trouble, complicated his illness and hastened his death.
He had been working since last August at Independence, Kansas, with a construction company. In April he returned home quite sick and the illness continued to grow worse until last week it took a very bad turn and from that time he was confined to his bed. He had planned to enter a government hospital for treatment but death put an end to that plan.
Clyde Agy was born in Grinnell, Ia., December 28, 1894. In 1912 he came to Reinbeck with his parents and his home was there, with occasional absences, until his death. In July, 1917, he enlisted in the army and in September of that same year he went to France as a member of Co. I, 114th Infantry, of the 29th Division. Illness in France prevented him from seeing active service, the Armistice coming just before he was to be sent up to the front.
He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Julia Agy, and by four sisters and two brothers. These are Myrtle, of Waterloo; Mrs. Effie Mennenga, of Grundy Center; Florence, of Chicago; Blanche, Hollywood, Calif.; Walter, of Cleveland, Ohio, and Harlan, at home.
Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at three o'clock at the First M.E. church, Rev. H. R. Schmidt, conducting the services. Action Post, American Legion, observed the ritual of a military burial for their comrade in arms.
