Earl Greany Dies Monday
Earl Greany, who had spent most of his active life in Grundy county, died at the hospital in Grundy Center, at nine o'clock Monday morning. Uremic poisoning was the cause of his death. He was taken to the hospital on February 12th. His condition grew gradually worse during the past two weeks and for several days before the end came hopes for his recovery were given up. Several years ago he was afflicted with ulcers of the stomach. Following an operation which removed much of the stomach his health was good until he was stricken with his last ailment. He would have been 63 years old had he lived until next May.
Funeral services were held at 9:30 Wednesday morning at Sacred Heart Catholic church, Grundy Center, with Rev. Fr. J. F. Kress officiating. Burial was in the Catholic cemetery at Grundy Center.
