Death is shock
The death of Ed Flagg early Christmas Eve came as a shock to his many friends throughout the community. He had been in his usual good health. Death came suddenly, the result of a heart attack. Mr. Flagg was an authority on Colusa landmarks and history dating back to 1873. His passing further thinned the ranks of Colusa’s pioneer residents. He was kindly, mild mannered and ever loyal to his friends. His familiar presence on the streets of Colusa will be greatly missed. The Rev. Glenn B. Ogden will officiate at the services tomorrow, followed by interment in Colusa cemetery.
