End Comes For Mrs. Leonard Stuck After Long Illness
Mrs. Leonard Stuck died Saturday afternoon at St. Francis hospital, Waterloo, from cancer. She had been in failing health for the past two years. She had been confined to her bed continuously during the three months preceding her death.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon at the Coffman funeral home. Rev. F. J. Langenberg officiated at the service. Burial was in the Grundy Center cemetery.
Mrs. Leonard Stuck, nee Caroline Sweet, was born April 8, 1875, at Gladbrook, Iowa. At the age of two years, she, with her parents, moved to Grundy county, to live on a farm three miles north of Lincoln, Iowa, and from there to the Kepford farm 6 1/2 miles southwest of Grundy Center.
On September 20, 1898, she was united in marriage to Leonard Stuck. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Stuck made their home in Grundy Center, first living in the southeast part of town, and on May 8, 1904, moved to the north part of town, about a block south of the canning factory, where she lived until she was taken to the hospital on Sept. 22.
Mrs. Stuck had had several strokes some years ago, with no ill effects; but in January of 1943 this terrible and treacherous disease of cancer started giving her some trouble, which gradually kept getting worse, and since August 7 she had to remain in bed for 89 days, 43 of which were spent in St. Francis hospital in Waterloo and where the end of her earthly pilgrimage came on Saturday, Nov. 4, at 5:50 p.m., reaching the age of 69 years, 6 months and 26 days.
Surviving are her husband, the adopted daughter, who was adopted at the age of 3 1/2 years and now is Mrs. Carl Meyeraan of Waterloo; the son-in-law; three grandchildren; four sisters: Maggie (Mrs. Calvin Hodge) of Winnebago county; Laura (Mrs. Jess Ireland) of Ocean Beach, Calif.; May (Mrs. Hans Petersen) of Stevens, So. Dakota; and Pearl (Mrs. Walter Palmer) of Grundy Center; also three brothers, Fred of Winnebago, George of Marshalltown, Jess of Hudson. One son, two sisters and one brother preceded her in death.
