C. C. Price Died At Hospital in California
Word has reached here of the death of C. C. Price at Sawtill hospital, Los Angeles, on Dec. 27th. He was stricken quite suddenly at his home and died a few moments after he reached the hospital. He suffered a stroke a number of years ago, but had largely recovered from that. He was 67 years old. Funeral services and burial were at Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Price resided in Grundy Center for many years. During most of that time he was associated with his father-in-law, J. C. Bourne, as an employee and partner in the hardware business. The family left here for California about fifteen years ago.
Surviving are the wife and daughter, Louise Hickman, and two grandchildren. Mrs. Reed Trevillyan of Grundy Center is Mr. Price's sister.
