The Goldfield Chronicle

Funeral services for Glenn Braden, 59, Goldfield postmaster, are to be conducted at 2 p. m. today in the Methodist church at Goldfield by the Rev. Howard Machlan. Interment is to be in Goldfield cemetery.

Mr. Braden, who was apparently in good health, died about 4:15 a. m. Tuesday in his home, evidently from a heart attack.

He had been postmaster at Goldfield since 1939 and owned the building in which the post office is located.

Mr. Braden was born in Dows and attended school there. He served in World War I and attended Cedar Rapids Business college. Before becoming postmaster, he was employed by the Whyte Motor company at Goldfield.

Survivors include Mrs. Braden, a daughter Beverly of Mason City, a son Robert of Sioux City, and a brother Harold of Chicago.

Mr. Braden's untimely death was a shock to hundreds of friends and acquaintances in this area.
