Mrs. Glenn L. Cox Dies In Outside Hospital
Mrs. Glenn L. Cox died at St Joseph hospital in La Grande Friday evening, March 1, 1940. She had been suffering from tumors for a year but her condition had not been considered really serious, and it was thought an operation would bring a cure. She went to the hospital last week Tuesday, accompanied by the whole family, and the operation was performed.
It proved severe and the shock was too great. She failed steadily until the end came.
Funeral services were held at the Catholic church Tuesday morning and burial was in the local cemetery, with Rev. R.E. Kennedy officiating. The pall bearers were schoolmates of Mrs. Cox’s only son, and were Mile Toney, Bill Storm, Maurice Weaver, Robert Hays, Oid Stockdale and Keith Miller.
Laura Elizabeth Nuxoll was born at Green Creek, Ill., July 26, 1899, a daughter of John H. and Mary Nuxoll. The family came west in 1900, stopping in Idaho until 1913 when they moved to Wallowa valley. Laura Nuxoll was married to Glenn L. Cox at Joseph, Nov 25, 1919, and they had made their home at Enterprise practically ever since.
Surviving are the husband and one son, Gilbert John, the mother, Mrs. Mary Nuxoll, and eight brothers and sisters: Adolph, Mrs. Pauline Longstreet of Spokane, Clem J., Clarence P., Louis, Mrs. Nellie Scott, Gilbert and Leo G. Nuxoll.
Another death in Mrs. Nuxoll’s family made it impossible for many of her relatives to come to the funeral. Leona Hussman, 30 year old daughter of her brother, William Hussman, died at Boise, Idaho early Saturday morning, a few hours after Mrs. Cox had passed away. Her funeral was held Monday at Boise.
