Sudden Death Removes Grundy Woman
Mrs. J. P. Doak Passes Away Suddenly Last Friday Morning At Marshalltown
Was Ill But A Few Hours
This community was shocked last Friday morning when it was learned that Mrs. J. P. Doak, of this city, had died very suddenly and unexpectedly at a Marshalltown hospital where she had accompanied her daughter the evening before. She was in her usual health when she left her home in Grundy Center the evening before. As she was entering the hospital at about 7:30 o'clock, Mrs. Doak was stricken without warning with a hemorrhage of the lungs. She rallied somewhat during the night, but at 9:30 Friday morning the end came very suddenly. Mrs. Stambaugh's baby, a fine nine and one-half pound boy, was born at 8 o'clock Thanksgiving night.
Seatta Frederick Doak was the only child of Rev. and Mrs. Cornelius Frederick, who resided in Melrose township, Grundy county, Iowa, on the old Frederick farm which is now owned by Melvin Lewis. She was born August 15, 1868, and her age at the time of her death was 59 years, 3 months and 10 days.
Rev. and Mrs. Cornelius Frederick retired from the farm while the daughter was in her young ladyhood and purchased a residence in Grundy Center and moved there soon after. In this new home of her parents she was married to J. Perry Doak on the 3rd of December, 1890. Mr. and Mrs. Doak moved to this residence ten years ago after retiring from the farm on which they lived for 27 years, or since their marriage.
Mr. and Mrs. Doak had the great joy of having born to bless and grace their home a daughter, Velma Irene, and a son, Linn F.
Linn with his family now live on the old Doak farm and Mrs. Stambaugh and family on the farm joining the home farm on the south.
There are five grandchildren living: Lyle, Isabelle and Irvin Dale Doak, little Dorothy Marie having died only recently, Joy Linn and Earl Dean Stambaugh. Earl Dean was born only a few hours before his grandmother's death. The fact of his birth was revealed and enjoyed by Mrs. Doak before the angels took her home.
Mrs. Doak became a christian and united with the Church of the Brethren at Ivester in 1900 and remained very faithful until her death. The Ivester congregation will remember her smiling face and helpful presence at the services only the Sunday previous to her death while she was in her usual place of worship.
