George Lynch Dies Suddenly At Morrison
George Lynch, well known over Grundy county, died at his home in Morrison at three o'clock on Thursday afternoon. Death was due to a heart block. He strained himself in helping to push a car out of the mud the night before. He didn't feel well after he got up Thursday and shortly after lay down again. A doctor was called to attend him both during the forenoon and afternoon. His condition was not regarded as being extremely critical up to the time the end came very suddenly.
Funeral services were held at the Catholic church in Grundy Center Saturday forenoon. The services were conducted by the local pastor, Rev. Father Leo Entringer. Burial was in the Catholic cemetery.
George William Lynch was born on a Grundy county farm on Aug. 13, 1882, the youngest son of William and Ellen Lynch. He attended the rural school near his home, and later Reinbeck high school and Highland Park college at Des Moines.
On April 12, 1910, he was united in marriage to Rose Cecelia Pollard. To this union were born four children, two of whom, Margaret and Vincent, preceded him in death.
Besides his widow, he leaves two sons, Michael Francis and William Woodrow; two grandchildren, Dennis and Ellen Marie; two brothers, William, Long Beach, Cal., and Edward, Reinbeck; and two sisters, Mrs. Sam Frakes, Grundy Center, and Mrs. E. E. Brady, Waterloo.
Mr. Lynch left a host of friends who will long remember him for his many acts of charity and kindliness. The old saying, "A friend in need is a friend indeed," may well be applied to him.
Those from out of town attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Brady and Donald Lynch, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Lynch and Mary Ellen, Lowell Lynch, all of Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. Leo Lynch and Francis Ann of Clarion; Mr. and Mrs. Earl Diamond, Eagle Center; Miss Margaret Pollard, Iowa Falls; Miss Marie Cox, Mr. and Mrs. Ace Stackhouse, Des Moines; and Mrs. Harold Wohlert, State Center.
