Death of Ode Albright
J. Odess Albright, 45, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Albright, died at the home of his parents in this city, at 8:30 o'clock Monday evening, July 1st, 1929.
Ode, as he was familiarly known, had been in failing health for a number of years, but had been failing quite rapidly for the past year. However, he was able to attend the golden wedding anniversary of his parents at the city park last Friday evening, and seemed to enter into the enjoyment of the occasion most heartily.
Funeral services were held from his late home at four o'clock on Wednesday afternoon. Rev. L. P. Cassel, of the Baptist church, officiating. Interment was in the Grundy Center cemetery beside his brother, Vanee, who preceded him in death about two years ago.
Obituary next week.

Jacob Odess Albright was born Mar. 24, 1884, at Aberdeen, S.D., and died at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Albright, of Grundy Center, on July 1, 1929, at the age of 45 years, 3 months and 6 days.
For the past year he had been gradually losing his robust health and it was not until the month of April that he spent four weeks at the State Hospital, Iowa City, under the most careful examination of that splendid institution. It was here that a growth was removed from the throat and his condition was pronounced tuberculosis of long standing.
Feeling that there was no further help, he returned to his parents and became a very patient and silent sufferer until the end came on Monday evening at 8:30 o'clock.
During his declining days he was able to be up and around until two days preceding his death. He was pleased to be able to attend the golden wedding of his parents on June 28.
Nearly forty years of his life have been spent in this vicinity where the aged parents, two brothers, Dr. J. R. and Clarence Albright, and one sister, Mrs. Bert Davidson, survive.
Services were held at the home on Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in charge of Rev. L. P. Cassel of the Baptist church. Mrs. W. D. Wilson and Mrs. Hugh Willoughby, friends of the family, sang.
Besides the friends and relatives in this vicinity, three cousins, Mrs. F. A. Thurber, of Liscomb, Mrs. Will Miller, Blooming Prairie, Minn., and Mrs. Edward Roupe, of Steamboat Rock, and two uncles, John S. Albright, of Savanna, Ill., and A. A. Reynolds, Redlands, Calif., were in attendance at the funeral.
