Mrs. Luella Hook collapsed suddenly Wednesday night at the high school after attending the weekly bridge class, and was taken to Allen Memorial Hospital in Waterloo, where she died at 2 a.m. Thursday. She had been in apparent good health up to the time she was stricken.

Mrs. Hook was the daughter of John and Margaret Heikens Cobie. She was born in Grundy County, January 6, 1913, and has always lived in this vicinity. She taught school for a number of years in two Grundy county rural schools.

In 1938 she married Gerald Hook, and they lived on a farm six miles east and two miles south of Ackley. Mr. Hook died suddenly May 6, 1957.

About a year ago Mrs. Hook moved into a newly completed home in the south part of Ackley.

Surviving her are a sister, Mrs. John R. Lindaman, and two brothers, Joe and George Cobie, all of Ackley.

Mr. and Mrs. George Cobie have been vacationing in Florida, and funeral arrangements are pending their return. They started home on Thursday morning.
