John Woodmency was born in Fayette county, Pennsylvania, April 3rd, 1854. In early manhood he came west and for some years made his home with an uncle, Jefferson Morrison, of Grundy county.
In the year 1874 he was united in marriage to Miss Ida A. Good, and to this union were born three children: Frank Woodmency, Lincoln, Iowa; Mrs. B. B. Dilly, Ludington, Neb.; Dale Woodmency, Albion, Neb. The wife and mother passed away in 1906 from their home here at Grundy Center. April 6, 1912, he was again united in marriage to Mrs. Jennie Conly, of Chicago, and during these years have made their home in this community.
Mr. Woodmency had lived in Grundy county for more than fifty years, being here when the railroad was built thru this part of Iowa. For many years he was associated in the stock business with W. D. Wilson and was engaged in the stock buying business at the time of his death.
Just a short time ago Mr. and Mrs. Woodmency autoed to St. Paul for a visit with Mrs. Woodmency's daughter and while there he was taken with a severe cold, but recovered sufficiently to return home, and then immediately grew worse until plural pneumonia set in. For several days the family physician and the faithful wife fought bravely to bring relief, but to no avail, and on Friday morning, Jan. 4th, he passed out into the other world.
Beside the friends and neighbors, there are left to mourn the wife, Mrs. Jennie Woodmency, two sons, Frank and Dale, and one daughter, Martha, now Mrs. B. B. Dilly; two brothers, A. J. Woodmency, Pennsylvania; also two sisters, one living in Pennsylvania and one in Ohio.
The many friends of Mrs. Woodmency and family extend their kindest sympathy at this time of sorrow.
The funeral services were held at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock with the pastor, Rev. F. O. Winslow, in charge. Interment was at the local cemetery.
