Contracted the flu last March, later inflammatory rheumatism
developed, followed by dropsy, the direct cause of his death.

effort to save their beloved son. Emil had been looking
forward to receiving some grapes from a friend in California,
and Monday his father went down to the post office about 4
o'clock to see if they had arrived. He returned in a few
minutes after his son had breathed his last at about 4:30 pm.
His mother and his sister Hulda were at his bedside when he
answered the call of his Maker. Emil Grenz was born on
the Grenz Homestead in Napoleon on May 11, 1911 and passed
away at the age of 15 yrs. 3 months and 12 days.
