Hug, Glen – Obituary

Many Attend Last Rites Of Late Glen Hug

Friends and relatives from every neighborhood of the Elgin district and from many districts in Union county were present at the Christian church in Elgin at 2:30 Sunday afternoon to honor and pay a tribute of respect to the late Glenn Hug, who passed from this mortal life at Grande Ronde Hospital, early Thursday morning, September 24, 1942.

Having been born near Elgin and having spent his entire life here, as well as being a member of one of the largest families in Union county, the attendance at the funeral services, and the internment following at Summerville cemetery, was the largest seen here in recent years. Many beautiful floral pieces also gave evidence of the esteem in which deceased was held by the large number who enjoyed his acquaintance and friendship.

The services were conducted by the Rev. Glen Ballard, pastor of the Christian church, of which deceased became a member in 1916, and in which he was very active, and for some years an elder. Rev. Ballard was assisted by Edwin Beem, life-long friend and fellow church worker.

Closest relatives remaining to mourn his passing are: his widow, Mary; two daughters, Daphene and Arleta, and two brothers; Ray and Arnold; and a sister, Mrs. Grace Spivey, who resides at Baker. In addition there are a large number of surviving relatives, member of the several branches of the well known Hug family.

Glen Hug was born near Elgin, Oregon April 22, 1902, and was 40 years, 5 months and 2 days old. He was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Hug, whose passing was recorded several years ago. He was reared and attended school in the Highland district and while still a young man engaged in farming in association with his brother, Arnold, operating the farm their father owned before them.

In addition to his farming operations he drove the school bus serving rural districts contiguous to the Elgin schools. In that capacity he made the acquaintance and cultivated the friendship of may boys and girls, so that his passing is not mourned alone by a large number of adults, who admired and respected him for his many excellent qualities and splendid character.

He had apparently been in the best of health until a few months ago, and his demise at the age of 40 years came as a shock to many.

He was united in marriage to Miss Mary McDonald, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George McDonald, former well known residents of the Pumpkinridge district. The surviving daughters, Daphene and Arleta, remain with the mother to grieve the loss of a loving and devoted husband and father, and a citizen who was held in the highest esteem.
