It was with sadness that Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) folks learned of the death of Mrs. Henry Glenzer, who passed away at her home in the village last Thursday morning, March 31st, 1932. She had been ailing for some time and her strength slowly ebbed away until she departed her loved ones to be with her Father.

Burial took place at Memorial Cemetery with her grandsons, Ben and Russell Way, Ray Flood, and Graydon Schultz, Ernest and ? Boss, and Vilas Verhulst acting as pallbearers. Six of her granddaughters, Misses Marcella Way, ? Verhulst, Ethel Lenore and ? Schultz, and carol Flood, acted as flower girls.
