End Comes For Mrs. G. L. Frost At Hospital
Was 74 Years Old And Spent All Of Her Life In The Vicinity Of Grundy Center
Mrs. George L. Frost, pioneer resident of Grundy Center, passed away at the Deaconess hospital, Marshalltown, on Monday morning, October 6, after a heroic struggle against an illness that had sapped her strength for many months. Just one week before her death she had fallen and broken a hip following which she was taken to the hospital.
Minnie Gertrude Clark was born on March 27, 1867, to Albert and Mary Clark in their log house home just a mile and a half from the farm on which she has lived since 1887. She was the eldest of five children, of whom two brothers, Lucius C. Clark of Winter Park, Florida, and John Clark of Grundy Center, and one sister, Mrs. Ada Gleason of Cedar Rapids, survive. One brother, Jeffie, died when a child of a year and a half in 1876.
She was united in marriage to Geo. L. Frost, at the home of her parents, on March 11, 1885. To this union two children were born, Mrs. Clara Wilhelm of Grundy Center, and Albert Jacob Frost of Atkinson, Neb., both of whom survive their mother. She was preceded in death by her husband in March of 1921.
Mrs. Frost became a member of the Methodist church of Grundy Center in her girlhood and had taken a continuous and active interest in the church activities throughout her life. She had a zest for life and for all that was best that made her a source of strength and help to all who knew her.
She lived within a mile and a half of Grundy Center throughout her more than 74 years. She is mourned by many a heart besides those of her two brothers, her sister and her two children and four grandchildren, George Wilhelm of Jamestown, N.Y., Harold Wilhelm of Grundy Center, and Avis Jean and Verne Eugene Frost of Atkinson, Neb.
Funeral services were held at her old home and that of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Wilhelm a mile west of Grundy Center early Wednesday afternoon and later at the Coffman Funeral Home. Rev. R. A. Hallett was in charge of the services. Burial was by the side of her husband in the Grundy Center cemetery.
