Glenn Morrison Found Dead In Bed at Waterloo
Glenn G. Morrison, youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Morrison, was found dead in his bed in his office apartment at Waterloo Saturday morning.
Death was due to a hemorrhage and sudden heart attack. The county coroner at Waterloo who examined the body said Morrison had probably died from seven to eight hours before his body was found.
The body was brought to Grundy Center for burial. There was a short prayer service at the grave here Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. H. E. Dierenfield, pastor of First Presbyterian church in Waterloo.
Mr. Morrison returned Friday noon from a week's business trip to northwestern Iowa and Austin, Minn.
The body was found by Miss Emily M. Sandberg, Morrison's secretary. When she went into the office to start work she said she heard water running in a lavatory in a small bedroom off Morrison's office where he had spent the night. She investigated and found him lying on a bed.
Had Been Ill
Mrs. Morrison said Saturday morning her husband had been ill with influenza and had not been feeling well for about two weeks. He telephoned her from his office at 5:30 p.m. Friday to say he would spend the night there.
Mrs. Morrison took him some medicine and telephoned him later, about 9 p.m. Friday, when she said he told her he was feeling better.
Born in Grundy
Glenn Graves Morrison was born April 16, 1890, in Grundy Center, Ia. He attended the University of Iowa for one year and graduated in 1910 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He passed the Iowa state bar examination at the age of 21.
For two years he practiced law in Grundy Center, after which he moved to Austin, Minn., to engage in the real estate business.
On March 14, 1918, Mr. Morrison married Miss Evelyn Foote, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James A. Foote of Waterloo. The couple lived in Austin, Minn., until 1932 when they moved to Waterloo.
Surviving besides the widow are a daughter, Ellen, a senior at East High school, Waterloo; and two brothers, Wayne of Grundy Center and Orange Dudley, Hot Springs, Ark. Preceding him in death were his parents, a sister, Arvilla, and brother, Frank.
