The library volunteer couldn't find an obituary for Nellie Glenn White, but sent a copy of the Record of Funeral from the Howe Funeral Home. Nellie was born 1 Jan 1882 [in Iowa per census records] and died 18 Apr 1937 in Lebanon. She had resided in Oregon for 12 years. Her parents were John Glenn, birthplace Iowa, and Mary Leonard, birthplace not given. The funeral was paid for by John Boender.
