MRS. J. FORMANEK DIES WEDNESDAY AT CEDAR RAPIDS, HAD BEEN ILL FOR SEVERAL YEARS OF HEART TROUBLE
Mrs. Joseph Formanek, 32, formerly Annabelle Cline, of Toledo, died early Wednesday morning at Mercy hospital in Cedar Rapids where she was taken Tuesday afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Formanek lived on a farm at the south edge of Chelsea. She was the adopted daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Cline, of Toledo. Her death followed several years' illness of heart trouble.
Mrs. Formanek was a graduate of Toledo high school and after graduation taught in the rural schools of the county. She was married to Raymond Brush, of Chelsea, February 13, 1932, and he was killed in an automobile accident in April 1934. Mr. and Mrs. Brush were the parents of a son who died in infancy. Her second marriage was to Joseph Formanek, who survives.
The funeral service will be held Friday morning with a brief service at the Hrabak funeral home at 9 o'clock and at St. Joseph's Catholic church at 9:30. Rev. W. Panek will be in charge. Pallbearers will be Leonard Tappan, Raymond Wilkinson, Albert Benda, Charles Haen, Fred Musel and James Novotny. Burial will be in the Catholic cemetery.
NOTE: I spoke with Eunice Meek over the phone, 5 Nov 2003 - "Annabelle lived in Chelsea. She was the only survivor of a car crash on Old Highway 30, about 3 miles west of Toledo. The crash killed her husband and Gladys Polk and two other young men. She died of a heart ailment [11 years later]. I believe the crash was the cause of her heart troubles."
[The other two men were Burnell Brush, 19 years old and Richard Kaloupek, 18 years old. Gladys Polk was 18 years old.]
