Mrs. Glenn Shear Died Today
Passed Away at Her Home at Eight O'Clock This Morning
Mrs. Glenn Shear died at her home in Grundy Center at eight o'clock this morning following an illness which covered a period of three years. She submitted to treatment for cancer three years ago and for a time seemed to be getting better. Some time later she met with an accident resulting in a broken hip bone. A year ago she suffered a similar accident and since that time she was confined to her bed.
Mrs. Shear was born here and she lived here all of her life. She would have been 47 years old on the 14th of next August. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Hasbrouck. E. W. Hasbrouck, a brother of Mrs. Shear, is the only member of the Dan Hasbrouck family surviving. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

Two Deaths In One Family
Grandma Shear Follows Closely the Death of Daughter-in-Law
The Glenn Shear home has been doubly afflicted the past week, Mrs. Shear having passed away on Thursday and Grandma Shear was called to her eternal rest Monday morning.
Until just prior to her death Grandma Shear had been staying for a short time at the Ben Smith home, but owing to the illness of Mrs. Smith, Grandma Shear was removed to the John Cox home where she passed away early Monday morning.
During all the months that Mrs. Glenn Shear has been in poor health and also Grandma Shear no husband or son could have been more faithful and diligent in administering to the needs of the afflicted than was Glenn, and he did much to cheer up the declining weeks and days to his loved ones.
Mrs. Glenn Shear
Mrs. Alma Shear, nee Hasbrouck, was born in Grundy Center, Iowa, Aug. 14, 1881, and departed this life May 9, 1929, at the age of 47 years, 8 months and 25 days.
On October 10, 1902, she was united in marriage to Glenn Shear, and they have made their home in Grundy Center ever since.
Mrs. Shear had been in failing health for the past three years, having been bedfast since last June. During this time she manifested unusual patience in spite of her extreme suffering. She had been a very active woman and interested in the various activities of the town such as the Baptist Ladies' Aid, W.C.T.U., The Kings Daughters, the Auxiliary of the Legion, the Yeomen and Royal Neighbors.
Those left to mourn her departure are her husband, her step-father, Ed. O. Hasbrouck, one brother, Ernest W. Hasbrouck, six step-brothers and three step-sisters and a host of relatives and friends.
During her late sickness, her husband, as well as Arthur and James Hasbrouck, Mrs. Booth and Anna Wickers, did everything possible to minister to her comfort. Mrs. Shear was always very appreciative of everything that was done for her both in a material and spiritual way.
The funeral was held from the Baptist church Saturday afternoon May 8th, Pastor L. P. Cassel officiating. The large attendance and the beautiful floral offerings showed the esteem in which the deceased was held. Interment in Grundy cemetery.
