Called Away by Death

CHRISTOPHER FEHELY

The above named young man, a son of Owen Fehely, of Stockton, was buried in the Catholic cemetery last Sunday afternoon. "Chris." Fehely was born in the town of Stockton, Dec. 25th, 1856, where he resided most of the time until he reached man's estate, when he commenced work for the Central railroad company, and for eight or nine years previous to some ten years ago, was conductor of a train on the road. He afterwards removed to Minneapolis and entered the employ of the St. P., M. & O. R.R., first as baggageman and afterwards running a train. He was married in Minneapolis about four years ago to Miss Winnie Martin. Mr. Fehely had been troubled with lung and throat difficulties for several years, and last fall went out to Denver, Col., in the hope that the dry climate would benefit him, remaining there for four months. He kept getting worse, gradually, and came back to Minnesota, and in March last went to Fifield, this state, where a sister and brother reside, and where he died on Friday night last. The deceased's death was caused by consumption, although he also suffered with kidney troubles, and experienced considerable agony during his long illness, all of which he bore bravely. Chris. had hundreds of friends in this city and county, which was amply testified to by the large number that followed his remains to their last resting place. He was a whole souled, jolly fellow, making a friend of everyone he met, and it is indeed sad to see him taken off just in the prime of life. Besides his wife and father above spoken of, Mr. Fehely leaves four brothers, Wm., of this city, Jas. E., of Fifield and John and Mike, of Stockton, and three sisters, Mrs. Jas. Sweeney, of Fifield, Nancy and Katie, who reside on the old homestead. The remains arrived here on Sunday morning at 2 o'clock and were taken to his brother's home on Water street. Funeral services were held at St. Peter's church at two o'clock Sunday afternoon, after which the large procession wended its way to St. Stephen's cemetery where all that was mortal of this once active young man was laid to rest. The pall bearers were M. Griffin, P. C. Kelly, T. H. and Jerry Moore, of this city, Robt. Hurd and John Broslin, of Fifield.

FOLLOWS HUSBAND TO GRAVE

Mrs. Patrick Fehely, of Stockton, Whose Husband Died Four Months Ago, Expired Suddenly Last Saturday

Mrs. Patrick Fehely died very suddenly at the family home in the town of Stockton, southeast of Arnott station, last Saturday forenoon. Mrs. Fehely had long been in declining health, due to old age and a general breaking down, but her death came most unexpectedly. She was up and about as usual Saturday morning and shortly before noon sat down and immediately commenced breathing laboriously. Her older son, Patrick, was in the room at the time and stepped to his mother's side. Noticing her condition he asked whether he could do anything for her. She made no reply, and he assisted her to her feet and partially carried her to her bed, where she expired almost instantly on lying down, death being due to heart failure, and came just four months to the day from the time her husband was laid to rest in St. Stephen's cemetery in this city. Mr. Fehely died Jan. 17th and was buried on the 20th.

Hannah Murphy was born in County Cork, Ireland, about 74 years ago. She came to America with her widowed mother, brother and three sisters when a girl, her father having died in their native land, and for several years they made Connecticut their home. They came to Wisconsin in the 40's, locating at Hartford, at which place they lived for some years, coming to Stevens Point in '56 or'57. At the close of the rebellion, she was married to Patrick Fehely and soon thereafter they removed to the town of Stockton, locating upon the farm now owned by Martin Welch, where they lived a number of years. They then moved to the place that Jas. Tovey, Jr., owns at the present time, but for over 20 years have lived on the homestead, in the southern part of Stockton, where both passed away. She was the mother of four children, two girls and two boys, both of the former dying when infants. Mrs. Fehely was the last of her immediate family and is survived by two sons, both of whom live upon the farm, besides several nephews, among them being Patrick Murphy, of Winton, Minn., and Patrick and Richard Barnett, of Phillips. Mrs. Fehely was one of the most estimable women we have ever known, kind hearted nd noble, a friend at all times, a mother not only to her own, but to scores of others, some of whom have preceded her to the Great Beyond, as well. No needy person was ever turned from her door without being given food and shelter, and the memory of her kind acts will live as long as many who are still among the living are able to bless her name.

The funeral took place from St. Mary's church at Custer at 9:30 o'clock Monday morning, Rev. E. P. Lorigan officiating, and was largely attended. The remains were then brought to this city and interred in St. Stephen's cemetery beside the husband and others who have gone before. The pallbearers were John Leary, John Dineen, Jos. Raymond, Michael Clark, Richard and Wm. O'Keefe.

NANCY ELLA FEHELY

After an illness extending over a period of nearly ten years, Miss Nancy E. Fehely passed to the world beyond, last Monday evening at half past eight o'clock, at the home of her father, Owen Fehely, near Stockton station. Miss Nancy was born on the old homestead, 40 years ago, and has always resided at home. She was of a quiet, unassuming disposition, respected by all who knew her, and her death will be sincerely mourned. For several weeks before the final dissolution she had failed quite rapidly. Of the brothers and sisters, Mike and Miss Kate, live at home; Wm., in this city; Mrs. Jas Sweeney, James E. and John at Fifield. Funeral services were held at St. Stephen's church, this city, at 10 o'clock this morning, Rev. J. A. Bourgmeyer, of Custer, officiating, and remains were laid to rest in St. Stephen's cemetery. The pall bearers were Frank and Wm. Wagner, John Black, Jas. Tovey, Jr., Martin Heffron and Martin Welch.

DEATH OF JAMES GLENNON

A Pioneer Who Had Lived in Stevens Point Half a Century

James Glennon, whose serious condition was noted in Wednesday's Journal, died at the family home, 510 Normal avenue, at 2:20 this morning. He was taken sick three years ago, the attack being followed by a stroke of paralysis which affected his entire right side. Since that time he had not been able to walk without assistance and had been gradually failing.

James Glennon was born in County Roscommon, Ireland, in 1828 and therefore at the time of his death was in the 78th year of his age. He came to America when a young man and spent a few years at Roxbury, Mass., near Boston. He then came west, stopping for a short time at Elgin, Ill., and then to Beloit, this state, where he was married fifty years ago. Immediately after his marriage he came to Stevens Point and with the exception of a few months the family home had ever since been on Normal avenue, where he died. Mrs. Glennon passed away twenty years ago this fall. They were the parents of ten children, six of whom survive him. They are E. D. and J. S. Glennon of the Gazette, James Glennon, a well known machinist, Frank M. of the Moll-Glennon company, Mrs. W. A. Gething and Miss Anna. The latter has always lived at home and had the main care of her father during his long and helpless sickness and no parent ever had a more kindly, sympathetic and helpful daughter in the hour of need.

In his younger days Mr. Glennon followed the occupation of cook. In the old river running days he used to go down the river as cook on the rafts and for many years was also employed in the logging camps and at the mills in the same capacity. On account of his increasing years he retired from this work several years prior to the commencement of his fatal sickness. He was an industrious, honorable and upright citizen and we have often thought what a satisfaction and pleasure it must have been to him in his declining years to see all of his children meeting with success and occupying honorable positions and enjoying the confidence and respect of the community in which they were born and raised.

The funeral will be held from St. Stephen's church, of which deceased was one of the oldest members, at 9 o'clock Saturday morning.

DIED AT HOT SPRINGS

Sudden Death of William A. Glover of Glidden Thursday

Mrs. W. A. Glover of Glidden received a telegram from Hot Springs, Ark., last evening announcing the death of her husband at the National hotel in that city Thursday afternoon. Mr. Glover went to Hot Springs three weeks ago Sunday to take the baths for rheumatism which troubled him quite a good deal. He was also suffering slightly from stomach trouble supposed to be catarrh of the stomach. After arriving there his physician said he had ulcers in his stomach. Beyond this nothing is known of the cause of his death.

Mr. Glover was born in Lowell, Mass., 34 years ago in March. He traveled considerably but finally settled in Wisconsin about ten years ago and at present was an employee of the Chippewa Lumber Co. He married Miss Maggie Clark, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Clark of this city, five years ago in June. His wife is his only living relative, but he has many warm friends at Glidden, who will mourn his sudden death. Mrs. Glover and brother, Thomas Clark, of Glidden, came down on the afternoon train. Frank Clark of Manistique, Mich., and Miss Mary Clark who is visiting at Escanaba, Mich., are expected home tomorrow.

The body of Mr. Glover was shipped from Hot Springs at 6:30 this evening. It will arrive here Sunday night and will probably be buried from St. Stephen's church Monday morning.

J. O. FOXEN, COUNTY BOARD CHAIRMAN, DIES

SIXTY YEARS RESIDENT OF THIS SECTION

Brief Illness with Cold and Erysipelas Is Cause of His End

(Special to the Journal.)

Amherst, Wis., May 8-J. O. Foxen, chairman of the Portage county board of supervisors and for many years a representative of Amherst village in that body, died at his home here this morning at 9:30 o'clock following a comparatively short illness.

His death followed a severe cold, with which he was taken last Wednesday, and which developed into erysipelas. The latter complication is believed to have been the chief cause of his passing.

County Board Head

Mr. Foxen was 72 years of age, and known throughout central Wisconsin, having been a resident in this territory for more than 60 years. His service in the board of supervisors extended over a period of years during which he was vice-chairman, and upon the death of the late G. D. Park of Stevens Point succeeded to the chairmanship. At this springs' meeting of the board he was elected chairman for the ensuing term.

Born at Koshkonong, Rock county, on September 19, 1851, he would have been 73 years of age the coming fall if he had lived. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. O. K. Foxen of that place, who moved with their family to a farm in the town of New Hope, Portage county, when J. O. Foxen was 10 years of age.

Resident of Stevens Point

He remained on the farm, with his parents until he was 16, when he came to Stevens Point to become a clerk in the store of Robert Nesbit. He remained here for several years, leaving the city to go to Scandinavia, where he was employed in a store owned by Ole Wrolstad.

At Scandinavia, he was married to Mary Ann Jenson, on May 2, 1875. The young couple moved to Amherst village, where Mr. Foxen was employed for a number of years by A. M. and J. J. Nelson. After having been a resident of Amherst village several years Mr. Foxen went into the general merchandising business with M. S. Murat, remaining in this occupation until the formation of the International bank at Amherst.

Was First Cashier

Mr. Foxen was one of the organizers of the bank and left his business to become the bank's first cashier. He remained in this position until illness forced him to retire, and since that time had been in the insurance and real estate business.

Mr. Foxen's wife died on March 29, 1910, at Amherst. They had one daughter, Mrs. A. O. Anderson, but she passed away in 1920. On July 16, 1916, Mr. Foxen was married to Mrs. Emma Anderson of Lanark, who was residing in Amherst village at that time. The widow survives.

Lived at Manitowoc

For a time, after the death of his first wife, Mr. Foxen made his home at Manitowoc with his daughter. When he moved to Manitowoc he relinquished his post as supervisor from Amherst village. Upon his return, however, he was again elected supervisor and had been the village representative without interruption since.

The funeral arrangements had not been made up to this noon. S. T. Foxen, 812 Wisconsin street, a brother, left for Amherst this noon. Other local relatives will go down later.

Surviving Relatives

Besides the widow, there survive the following brothers and sisters: S. T. Foxen, Stevens Point: O. O. Foxen, Backoo, N. Dak., Mrs. Christine Sitzer, 300 Fremont street, and Mrs. Anna Sitzer, Minto, N. Dak. Two grandson, Thomas and Norman Anderson of Tampa, Fla., also remain.

Mr. Foxen was a member of the Amherst village school board and a member of the building committee having charge of the erection of the new Amherst High school building.

Mersch Chairman

M. J. Mersch, supervisor from the fifth ward in Stevens Point, automatically becomes chairman of the county board of supervisors, through the death of Mr. Foxen. He was elected vice-chairman at the board meeting this spring.

She attended the Stevens Point Normal School and was a rural school teacher for eight years. Schools in Portage County in which she taught included Harris, Lincoln and Sunnyside.

LEG IS CRUSHED OF ALMOND MAN, FEAR FOR LIFE

Accident in Field as Youth Works Alone with Tractor and Plow

Lawrence Hetzel, injured in a tractor accident this morning, died at St. Michael's hospital this afternoon at 3:45 o'clock.

Lawrence Hetzel, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Hetzel of Almond town, was seriously and perhaps fatally injured in a field at the farm of William Pagel, Almond, about 9 o'clock this morning.

His left leg was broken between the knee and hip, and his knee so badly crushed that amputation may become necessary. How the accident occurred is not known, because Hetzel was alone at the time, and aid was brought to him only after two little girls had heard his cries from the Pagel farm yard.

Crushed Between Machines

Hetzel was operating a tractor with a three-blade plow, and had made a number of circuits of the field when evidently he drove toward the Pagel barn to fix something on the tractor. When the girls found him and help was summoned, Hetzel was found between the tractor and plows, giving cause for the belief that the tractor backed up on him suddenly, crushing his legs between the tractor and the plowing machinery.

Brought to Hospital

Dr. E. D. Bigby was called from Almond, and after first aid was given the young man, he was placed upon a truck and brought to St. Michael's hospital. At the hospital this afternoon fear was held that the patient might not be able to withstand the shock of the injury. It is supposed that much blood was lost by the young man between the time of the accident and the time that help was attracted to him.

DEATH CLAIMS J. W. GLENNON, CITY PIONEER

Funeral to be Held Wednesday Morning for Veteran Newspaper Man

John W. Glennon, 816 Main street, veteran newspaperman of Stevens Point and a member of the editorial department of the Daily Journal, passed from life Sunday afternoon at 12:40 o'clock at St. Michael's hospital, where he had been a patient since April 14.

Active until two weeks before his death, Mr. Glennon continued to serve in the news department at the Journal up to and including April 9, when illness compelled him to remain at home and in bed. He was moved to the hospital the following Thursday, and his condition was critical from that time on. His ailment was hardening of the arteries, although the immediate cause of his death was paralysis of the throat. He retained consciousness until Saturday night.

Widely Known

Mr. Glennon was a life-long resident of Stevens Point and was widely known in the city and throughout Portage county. He was born in Stevens Point on May 2, 1967, a son of Mr. and Mrs. James Glennon, Sr., his father having been a pioneer riverman and lumberman of this city. As a boy Mr. Glennon attended the public schools here and also St. Stephen's school. He was a pupil for a short time at the Old White school.

On Gazette Many Years

He began an apprenticeship at the printer's trade when 13 years old and later entered the newspaper business, becoming an early day newspaperman with the Gazette, a weekly which was owned and published by his brother, Edward D. Glennon. Serving both as a printer and in an editorial capacity, he was associated with that newspaper for many years, and at the time of its consolidation with the Daily Journal, continued in the editorial department of the Journal.

Active in Orders

Mr. Glennon was actively identified with several Catholic fraternal orders of the city. At the time of his death he was recording secretary of Branch No. 11, Catholic Knights of Wisconsin, a position he held continuously for 10 years. He also held the office of inside guard in Council No. 1170, Knights of Columbus, and previously had held other offices in this council, while at the time of his death he was a trustee of Court No. 258, Catholic Order of Foresters. He was formerly chief ranger of the Foresters for seven years and subsequently was deputy high chief ranger. He was a life-long member of St. Stephen's congregation. His other activities included serving as a member of the board of education from 1914 to 1918. In earlier years he was active as a member of the Central Wisconsin Press association, having served as its president.

Well-Informed

During his long career as a newspaper man Mr. Glennon gained a wide acquaintance in the city and county. He maintained a keen interest in many affairs and was well informed as to the early history of the county and its residents.

Mr. Glennon was married on September 4, 1890, in Stevens Point to Elizabeth A. Nugent. Mrs. Glennon survives, as do one son and one daughter, Nugent Glennon of Milwaukee, who arrived here Sunday, and Miss Bertha Glennon, head of the English department of the Stevens Point High school. His other relatives are one brother, Frank M. Glennon, 639 Main street, one of the owners of the Moll-Glennon company, and two sisters, Mrs. W. A. Gething, 544 Normal avenue, and Mrs. James Duggan, 331 Pine street. Two other brothers, Edward D. Glennon and James L. Glennon, died in 1915 and 1912, respectively.

Funeral Wednesday

Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock at St. Stephen's church. Rev. George A. Casey will officiate and interment will follow in St. Stephen's cemetery. The body is at the Boston funeral home, to remain until the hour of the funeral.

Funeral of Mr. Glennon

Funeral services for John W. Glennon, veteran newspaper man and lifelong resident of Stevens Point, who died Sunday, were held at 9 o'clock this morning at St. Stephen's church. The large attendance at the services reflected the esteem in which Mr. Glennon was held in Stevens Point and his wide acquaintance among the townspeople. Rev. George A. Casey officiated at a requiem mass and at burial rites in St. Stephen's cemetery.

Servers at the mass were James Glennon, Jimmy Cashin, Ben Glennon and Robert Bader, the first three boys great-nephews of Mr. Glennon. James Glennon and Robert Bader are carrier boys, for the Daily Journal. St. Stephen's school choir sang during the mass and Miss Barbara Van Hecke played the organ.

Mr. Glennon's charity and kindliness, which were outstanding in his contacts with everyone who met him, were emphasized in a short eulogy given by Father Casey. The fullness of his charity, Father Casey stated, attained perfection because his kindliness to his fellow men was enriched by his charity toward God.

Pallbearers were J. W. Dunegan, C. E. Van Hecke, A. J. Cunneen, Frank J. Blood, W. F. Collins and M. J. Roach. Mrs. Hugh L. Huffman and Misses Marjorie Smith, Helen Rothrock and Lorraine Meyer Journal employes, and Mrs. Herman Persike of Wausau, a former employe at the Journal office, were in charge of flowers.

KILLED IN THE WOODS.

John Gray, of This City, Receives a Fatal Accident on the Somo River.--

He Dies at Rhinelander, and the Body Brought Home for Burial

Between seven and eight o'clock last Monday evening, James Gray received a telegram from Rhinelander stating that his nephew, John Gray, youngest son of Mrs. Thomas Gray had been killed in the woods. Nothing further was heard until Tuesday when information came that the body would arrive here at 9:20 that evening.

Two weeks before, the young man left here for the logging camp of John Conniff, on the Soo R. R. He had hired out to Mr. Conniff to drive team, and at the time he met with the accident that caused his death, was engaged in driving four horses. The day and night before, about eighteen inches of snow fell, and the teamsters started out early in the morning, expecting to do a good day's work. Between seven and eight o'clock, John Gray arrived at the landing, on the river bank, with his load of logs. He was the only one there at the time, and immediately commenced to loosen his chains, preparatory to rolling the logs down the bank. His load consisted of three or four logs. One or more of these unexpectedly commenced to roll, and before he could get out of the way was caught and carried down fully fifteen feet, with the heavy log upon his limbs. His cries brought J. A. McDonald and other men, who were working for Knox Bros., some forty rods away. Hurrying to his assistance, they found John firmly wedged between two logs, his lower limbs being in a vice-like grip. They were unable to extricate him without more help, and to get this required several minutes, but he was soon taken out and conveyed to the shanty, some two miles distance. Everything was then done that kind, willing hands could do, but it was deemed best to carry the unfortunate boy out to the station, place him upon a train and bring him to this city, as medical aid could not be secured there. Arriving at the so-called station, without a depot, one and a half mile's distance at about noon, they were obliged to wait there until half-past four o'clock, when a train came along going east, toward Rhinelander. John was placed upon this at one, and accompanied by Matt. Conniff and Peter Doyle, arrived there at 6 o'clock. Previous to starting upon this last journey, he was perfectly conscious, although growing rapidly weaker from the loss of blood. His sufferings were also terrible, but were borne with scarcely a murmur. Before the train reached Rhinelander, he became delirious, and as he was being taken from the depot to the hospital, death claimed him as its victim. The doctors there made an examination of the body, finding the left leg broken in two places, while the right knee was crushed and the flesh on both legs torn and lacerated, as well as the arteries. He was probably also injured internally, and the physicians were of the opinion that death would have been the result even if medical assistance could have been procured at once. Peter Doyle accompanied the body to this city.

The deceased young man was born in this city on the 19th day of December, 1867, and was therefore 22 years and 11 days old when he met with the lamentable accident that caused his untimely death. He has always made this city his home, being employed by various parties since he has been old enough to work and assist his widowed mother, and all cannot but speak of him in terms of praise. He was one of the best hearted boys in the world, ever having a pleasant smile and a happy, jolly work for every one whom he met, and all who knew "Johnny" Gray will regret his taking off and tender their sympathies to the afflicted family and relatives. His death, just in the commencement of a healthy, robust manhood, is especially sad. Besides his mother, four brothers, James and Albert, who are upon the St. Paul road, the former at Milwaukee and the latter at Portage, and Thomas and William, of this city, and two sisters, Miss Katie and Mrs. J. J. Jansen, of Bessemer, are left. The latter lady is unable to be here, having met with an accident that confines her to the house, only a few days ago, and Miss Katie's was summoned from the same place, arriving here on Tuesday evening.

The funeral took place from the St. Stephen's Catholic church at 9 o'clock this (Thursday) morning, and was largely attended.

DROWNING OF FRED GILMAN

Grand Rapids Paper Gives Additional Particulars of Sad Affair

The Wood County Reporter of Grand Rapids give the following account of the drowning of Fred Gilman of Plover in the river at that place Thursday evening. After stating that Gilman was drowned at about 8 o'clock, while taking a bath in the river, the Reporter says:

There were three companions with him when the accident occurred, George Keller, Oliver Bozlee and Geo. Gage. Bozlee was the only one who knew how to swim and he did all in his power to save the drowning man. His efforts were ineffective inasmuch as Gilman was a man about six feet tall, weighed over 180 pounds and did not respond to Bozlee's assistance.

It seems that Gilman knew very little about the art of swimming and had gone beyond his limit. He was first seen paddling about in dog fashion by Bozlee but at first nothing was thought of the matter. Soon Gilman's face became extremely red and it was at that Bozlee suspected that something was wrong. He swam over to Gilman and grasped his hand. Gilman paid no attention to Bozlee and continued his paddling. Bozlee could make no headway and finally was drawn beneath the water by Gilman. To get away he was compelled to dive under the drowning man.

He shouted to Gilman: "Kick, kick, kick; help me and I will swim with you to the shore." But Gilman did not answer and kept up the paddling. Gilman appeared too excited to realize his danger.

Bozlee went back a second time and told Gilman: "Take hold of my foot; stop paddling, and I will get you out of the water," but he could not make him understand.

Bertha Glennon

Miss Bertha Glennon, 83, retired member of the English faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and the person for whom the school's journalism center was named, died Wednesday afternoon at the Portage County Home following a long illness.

Her funeral will be 10 a.m. Friday at St. Stephen's Catholic Church, followed by burial in the parish cemetery. The Rev. Thomas Mullen will officiate. Friends may call after 4 p.m. today at the Boston Funeral Home. A rosary will be recited there at 7 p.m.

A memorial has been established in the UW-SP Foundation for a scholarship fund in her name to honor outstanding English students.

Miss Glennon taught English for 47 years on the collegiate and high school levels. She served at UW-SP from 1940 until her retirement in 1969. She also taught at Waupaca High from 1920 to 1921, at Stevens Point High from 1921 to 1922, 1924 to 1925 and from 1929 to 1940, and at Waukesha High from 1925 to 1929.

At the university, she served many years as adviser of The Pointer, student newspaper, and of The Iris, student yearbook. She was a secretary-treasurer of the faculty and adviser of the student social sorority, Omega Mu Chi.

Miss Glennon belonged to numerous education organizations including the Wisconsin Council of Teachers of English, of which she was a charter member. She also was a member of St. Stephen's Church and its Altar Society.

In the days when the university had no office to handle publicity, she wrote articles about campus people and events for Wisconsin newspapers in addition to her other responsibilities.

She came by her profession in teaching and writing naturally. Her father, John Glennon, was one of the editors of The Gazette, a local newspaper that was merged with the Stevens Point Journal. Her mother, the former Elizabeth Nugent, was a public school teacher here.

As a child, Miss Glennon delivered The Gazette in her neighborhood. She said she may have been the city's first paper girl about 75 years ago.

The university dedicated its journal-print laboratory and class facility in her name in the spring of 1978 after the Campus Laboratory School had been remodeled and converted to the Communication Arts Center.

The late Lowell Thomas, newsreel commentator, broadcaster, author and lecturer, was brought to campus by the university to speak at a dedication ceremony of the faculty. At that time, he was 86 and Miss Glennon was 78. He described her as 'a lovely, beautiful lady, so much younger than I am.'

Also in 1978, the University Alumni Day was dedicated to her, as had been the UW-SP Winter Carnival several years earlier.

Miss Glennon was born Jan. 11, 1900, in the house at 1624 Main St. where she spent nearly all of her life until she moved to the Portage County Home four years ago.

She was graduated from Stevens Point High School in 1918, received a two-year diploma to teach from the Stevens Point Normal School in 1920 and was given her bachelor's degree in 1924 and her master's degree in 1939, both at UW-Madison. She specialized in the literature of Milton and Keats.

Miss Glennon, who was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, is survived by cousins.

After attending Marquette university at Milwaukee for a year he was employed by the Ule Construction company in northern Wisconsin in power plant development. Later he became associated with the Rood Construction company at Wisconsin Rapids, where he lived until beginning his duties with the Hardware Mutual Casualty company in February 1920.

His marriage to Miss Fern Slattery of Sturgeon Bay took place on September 19, 1916, at Sturgeon Bay.

Mr. Glennon was a member of the Stevens Point Elks lodge at the time of his death. He joined the organization in 1913 and served as secretary of the Wisconsin Rapids lodge for several years.

Had Been a Resident of the City More Than Half a Century

Mrs. Ralph Harvey passed away Sunday evening at 10:40 at her home, 428 Normal avenue, after being confined to her bed for two weeks. For the past two years she had not been in good health, but was able to move about the house until recently. Two weeks ago, while in the kitchen, she suddenly fell as though stricken with paralysis. Since that time she had been unable to help herself, having lost her muscular control. While she had not had a paralytic stroke, her sudden failing of strength had a similar effect, but was the result of the infirmities of age.

Catherine McShine was born in Ireland, June, 1837, and was in her seventy-fourth year. In 1867, in this city, she married Ralph Harvey, who has lived here since 1855, and is now 89 years old. They have resided in the city since their marriage. Mr. Harvey was for many years engineer at the old planning mill of Herren & Wadleigh, one of the concerns which flourished a quarter of a century ago.

Besides her husband she leaves three sons and three daughters. They are Mrs. Henry Bergholfe and Herbert Harvey of this city, Mrs. G. K. Bahner and Charles H. Harvey of Brainerd, Minnesota, W. H. Harvey of Portage and Mrs. Frank Matthews of Holyoke, Mass. She is also survived by a son and daughter of a former marriage. They are James Lamb of this city and Mrs. Mary Leary of Brainerd, Minn.

Boy Victim of Revolver Shot Dies of Wound

Wallace Entzminger, 11-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Entzminger, 1431 Clark street, who was accidentally shot Thursday evening at the A. J. Miller home, 932 Clark street, by a revolver in the hands of William Miller, 11, died at 10 o'clock Friday night at St. Michael's hospital.

The boy's condition became worse at 4 o'clock Friday afternoon, although he remained conscious until shortly before his death. A bullet from the revolver had first struck the left wrist, shattering the bone, then entered the abdomen at the left side, striking the hip bone and lodging in the hip.

The accident occurred during the absence of Mr. and Mrs. Miller from their home, and in the presence of two other boys, Pat Bennett, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Bennett, 102 Cross street, and Paul Pressentin, son of Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Pressentin, 1011 Main street.

According to the explanation of William's companions, they were about to leave the Miller home when he brought out his father's gun, which Mr. Miller uses in his duties as a railway mail clerk and went through the motions of firing the revolver, believing it to be unloaded. The weapon was discharged and the Entzminger boy struck. The boys made an effort to secure a doctor, then resorted to first aid treatment of the hand and shortly afterward the Entzminger boy left and walked to his own home. When he arrived home, he told his mother only that he had been shot in the hand, not realizing the bullet had entered his body. The seriousness of his injuries were ascertained after he was removed to the hospital.

The Entzminger boy was in the fifth grade at the training school of the Central State Teachers' college. He was a member of the grade school basketball squad which was entered in the grade school basketball tournament.

Besides his parents, he is survived by one sister, Betty Jane, aged six, and a brother, Patrick, three.

Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon at the First English Lutheran church, Rev. O. E. Hesia officiating. Burial will take place in Forest cemetery.
