Mrs. Anna Rea Dies in California

A telegram was received by Hugh Willoughby announcing the death of Mrs. Anna Rea at Los Angeles Friday morning, death being due to apoplexy and coming very suddenly just as Mrs. Rea was getting ready to go out driving.

Mrs. Rea was the widow of J. Morris Rea, one of the early lawyers of Grundy Center, settling here in 1870. Mr. Rea has been dead some years and for the past seven years Mrs. Rea has made her home in southern California with her sons George and Ralph. The deceased was one of the well known earlier residents of Grundy Center and she has many friends who will mourn her loss. Mrs. Rea was in her 68th year at the time of her death.

The funeral service was held in Los Angeles Tuesday and the remains were laid to rest in a receiving vault until spring when they will be brought to Grundy Center and laid to rest beside those of her husband.

Mrs. Rea Buried Here

The body of Mrs. A. M. Rea arrived here Tuesday from California for burial in the Grundy Center cemetery. Mrs. Rea died a number of years ago and the body has since been in a receiving vault in that state. Her son, Ralph, accompanied the body to Grundy Center.

Geo. Rea of Los Angeles arrived Tuesday noon with the remains of his mother, Mrs. Ann Rea, for burial here. The remains were taken directly to the cemetery for interment, no service being held here. A few friends met Mr. Rea at the train and accompanied the procession to the cemetery.
