Glass, Cornelia (31 May 1851 - 4 Jan. 1926)

Mrs. Cornelia Glass, whose maiden name was Cornelia E. Trumbull, was born at Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, May 31, 1851. She was married to Louis J. Glass at New Lisbon, Wis., August 26, 1868. In 1870 they moved to Neillsville and this has been the family home ever since. At their home on Court Street, Mrs. Glass passed away on Monday, January 4, 1926, after an illness of one week from heart trouble. Although apparently frail for several years past, Mrs. Glass always brave and hopeful in spirit, remained active and alert, ever cheerful and ready to be of kindly service to all about her. No woman of this city and vicinity ever met with greater courage and fortitude the duties of life than did Mrs. Glass; no one ever brought to those duties and to the service of those about her, both in her own family and among her friends and associates, a finer and kindlier friendliness than she. Mrs. Glass’s memory will long be treasured by her children who have so thoughtfully ministered to her in her declining years, and by the neighbors among whom she has lived so long. She was a charter member of the Woman’s Relief Corps and brought it’s support during many years, all her patriotic energies. In a quiet way she has left upon this community the fine influence of a life of devotion to good things.

Mr. Glass died February 18, 1898, and two son, Elmer and Robert, are deceased. She leaves three sons and two daughters: Fred Glass of Hayward, Wisconsin; Frank of Fargo, North Dakota; and George at home; Mrs. R. W. Thompson, Laura, and Mrs. W. F. Dahnert, Daisy, both of Neillsville. All were home before their mother passed away.

Funeral services were held at the home Thursday, January 7, Rev. S. J. Lambright officiating.
