S. W. Kinney Dies In M-Town Hospital
Death Came After Several Months Illness From Bright's Disease
Simon W. Kinney, 47, who resided in this county all of his life, died at the Deaconess hospital in Marshalltown last Friday following an illness from Bright's disease with which he was afflicted for several months. The remains were taken to the home in Melrose township.
Funeral services were held at the Ivester church of the Brethren last Sunday beginning at eleven o'clock. During the service a quartet composed of Mrs. Frank Lamb, Mrs. D. C. Gnagy, Cecil Messer and Galen Albright rendered the songs "Blessed Assurance," "Jesus As Thou Wilt" and "My Father Planned It All."
The pallbearers were E. J. Gohner, D. I. Meyers, Adam Messer, Edwin VanTiger, Elias Moats and A. S. Moats. The pallbearers were all members of the deceased's Sunday school class.
Simon William, son of Robert and Dell Kinney, was born near Dike, Grundy county, Iowa, May 21, 1883, and died at the Deaconess hospital, Marshalltown, Iowa, December 12, 1930, at the age of 47 years, 7 months and 21 days. Mr. Kinney spent his entire life, with the exception of the last two years, in Grundy county.
In his early youth Mr. Kinney became a member of the Ivester Church of the Brethren. Later because of associations he transferred his membership for a time to the Whitten Christian church. About eleven years ago he again placed his membership in the Ivester church.
May 23, 1906, Mr. Kinney was united in marriage with Miss Ada Modlin. To this happy union two children were born, Wayne, a grown young man, and a small daughter, Avis. Both children are still at home.
The immediate cause of Mr. Kinney's untimely death was arteris-scelerosis and Bright's disease. He had been failing for some time, but because of a desire to shield his family from worry no one really realized his serious condition.
Mr. Kinney was a kind husband and father. He will be greatly missed by his wife and children. He is survived by two brothers, Ervin of Eldora and Glen of Grundy Center, his father and mother and one sister having preceded him in death. He will be greatly missed by all his neighbors and friends who knew him as a very fine neighbor.
